Prevention and Diagnosis

Hutton Family Dental is committed to providing you with the best dental care available, with an emphasis on prevention. Preventing disease through effective oral hygiene, periodic dental visits and quality dental care, costs less and is more rewarding than correcting problems once they occur. Good health is no accident. Dr. Hutton enjoys providing nutritional advice, helping his patients develop a sound oral hygiene plan and creating an oral examination schedule that will provide the most effective dental health results available. Check out the descriptions of each dental service listed below to learn more about prevention and diagnosis.

Cavity Detection

Logicon caries detector software assists Dr. Hutton in the daily task of diagnosing cavities and targeting areas for improvement in your mouth. This technology helps the doctor to determine how deep a cavity may be so that care can be provided as quickly and as efficiently as possible, enabling minimally invasive treatments.

Cleanings

Our hygienists can utilize Piezo scaling to aid in your comfort during dental visits. The Piezo uses water and ultrasonic technology to provide a gentle, yet thorough cleaning that leaves your teeth sparkling clean. We want you to leave our office feeling refreshed and revitalized, and the Piezo is here to help!

Fluoride Treatments

The staff at Hutton Family Dental wants you to have the brightest smile and the healthiest mouth possible. We work with you to develop a fluoride treatment plan that fits your needs, including a topical varnish and a gel for patients with more specific needs. Preventive care is a priority in our office, and fluoride is an important part of that process.

Sealants

Sealants help to prevent cavities on the biting surfaces of your teeth. They are an integral part of our preventive cavity risk assessment program and are offered to patients of all ages. Dr. Hutton can speak with you about your risk for cavities and help assess your need for sealants now and/or in the future.

Tooth Colored/Non-metal Fillings

You want to be confident in your smile! Hutton Family Dental utilizes non-metal fillings, which are a great alternative to unsightly metal fillings. Tooth-colored resins, also called composite fillings, are used by Dr. Hutton to restore your teeth. Composite materials are widely accepted in modern dental work and are nearly indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Digital X-Ray

Hutton Family Dental utilizes digital x-rays. They are an important part of a thorough dental examination and a safe alternative to the traditional dental x-rays. Although the exposure to radiation from dental x-rays is low, digital x-rays further reduce radiation. They offer the advantages of: an 80% reduction in radiation, no need for film or processing chemicals, the production of a nearly instantaneous image and the ability to use color contrast in the image. All of Dr. Hutton’s patients receive digital x-rays as an important step in preventive dental care.

Oral Cancer Screenings

The ViziLite Plus oral cancer screening is a painless exam that Dr. Hutton and his hygienists can perform in just a few minutes. We use a light source that helps to improve our ability to identify abnormalities. This screening service is available to patients, at all appointments, because early detection is the key to survival. Used in conjunction with a routine head and neck examination performed by Dr. Hutton, ViziLite can help save lives.

Nightguards

The clenching and grinding of teeth can lead to a gradual deterioration of tooth enamel. Night guards provide a barrier between teeth and rest snuggly in your mouth. Talk to Dr. Hutton about teeth grinding and the options available to you and your family.
