General Dentistry Enumclaw
A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions. We are happy to assist you in all of your general dentistry needs at our office in Enumclaw, Wa.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.
Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
A comprehensive dental exam will be performed by your dentist at your initial dental visit. At regular check-up exams, your dentist and hygienist will include the following:
- Examination of diagnostic x-rays (radiographs):
Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.

- Gum disease evaluation:
Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.

Family Dentistry Enumclaw
When you visit the office of Dr. Scott C. Decker in Enumclaw, Wa, your smile is our top priority. Our entire team is dedicated to family dentistry, providing you with the personalized, gentle care that you deserve.

Professional dental cleanings (dental prophylaxis) are usually performed by Registered Dental Hygienists. As a part of family dentistry, your cleaning appointment will include a dental exam and the following:
- Removal of calculus (tartar):
Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.
- Removal of plaque:
Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!
- Teeth polishing:
Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
