Dental Exams

Dental exams by our dentist in Fishers, IN, are thorough yet gentle. Dr. Holt and our dental hygienists check for early signs of cavities and gum disease. If we catch problems early on, we can prevent more severe issues in the future, so save time and money by scheduling your dental exam every six months.

The exam includes digital x-rays, tooth charting, an oral cancer screening, and more.

Dental Hygiene

Get a dental cleaning in Fishers to remove cavity-causing buildup. We’re confident you’re a great brusher, but we’ll take it one step further by cleaning the hard-to-reach spots. Our hygiene cleanings for kids and adults are gentle and painless, so you can sit back and relax.

If you haven’t been to the dentist in years due to anxiety, please contact us and let us guide you to better oral health. We’re a judgment-free zone!

Periodontal Therapy

If you have signs of gum disease like recession, bleeding, redness, or puffiness, it’s not too late to guide your gum health back on track. Gums are the foundation for healthy and beautiful teeth, and if infected, they may lead to periodontal disease plus tooth loss, diabetes, heart disease, and more.

Dr. Holt may recommend a deep cleaning (AKA scaling and root planing) to clean your roots and teeth to remove plaque and harmful bacteria.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Detection is critical for treating any type of illness, which is why our Fishers dentist performs an oral cancer screening during your dental check-up. The oral cancer screening is fast, painless, and chances are, you may not even notice it’s happening.

Dr. Holt gently checks your mouth and neck for signs of abnormalities, such as discoloration or lumps.

Digital X-Rays

Part of your thorough examination at the dentist includes images from digital x-rays. These x-rays help us see what’s happening under the gumline and find problems below the surface (invisible to the naked eye). Together, we may be able to prevent or treat any issues before they arise or grow.

Our high-tech dental x-rays are quick, comfortable, and more accurate than outdated x-ray imaging systems.

Night Guards

If you grind your teeth at night and have signs of bruxism, we can help with a night guard. Custom night guards help prevent teeth clenching at night, which causes extra pressure and tooth wear. Signs of nighttime grinding include worn teeth, migraines, and a sore jaw.

We help you protect your smile from bruxism to prevent tooth damage and more extensive treatments in the future.

Sealants

Sealants help prevent cavities in children and adults. Our family dentist applies a thin, tooth-colored coating onto the chewing surface of select teeth (especially molars). This creates a barrier of protection between the tooth and cavity-causing bacteria. It’s the easiest way to stop cavities from forming!

Sealants in Fishers, IN, help prevent future problems like fillings, extractions, and tooth loss.

‘‘Great, caring staff. This office has always had my family’s and my best interest in mind for many years with consistent, detailed follow-up. They do what they say they are going to do. I absolutely hate going to the dentist, but they make it a comfortable experience and aren't judgmental. This office is top-notch.’’
