At Harmony Dental, we take exceptional care of your oral health. Below are some of the preventive dental services that our practice provides.
Dr. Yakligian follows the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry guidelines for a first visit by age 1. Visiting the dentist at an early age sets a positive foundation for a lifetime of dental visits, and helps you understand how to care for baby teeth and what to expect as your baby grows. These first visits not only help your child acclimate to a new environment and feel safe and comfortable, it's also building a relationship between your family and your pediatric dentist. When a dental emergency occurs, you and your child will know whom to call and have the security of knowing your doctor. Early visits to the dentist can also help you identify any problem areas, pathologies or future issues that you may not be aware of, and set the course for your child's dental health.
A good oral hygiene routine is essential for helping your child to prevent cavities and maintain a healthy mouth. Your child, like you, should brush twice a day and floss at least once a day. However, children often have a harder time brushing and flossing properly. They also may try to avoid brushing and flossing or rush through the motions. This leaves them more vulnerable to the development of tooth decay and cavities. At Harmony Dental, we can help with fluoride treatments.
Professional cleanings performed by a hygienist or dental assistant are as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Twice yearly dental check-ups and cleanings help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair.
Regular examinations, by Dr. Yakligian, help detect and prevent health issues before they become serious. Consistent dental check-ups help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat.

Oral Cancer Screening
During your dental visit, Dr. Yakligian can talk to you about your health history and examine you for signs of mouth and/or throat cancer. Regular visits to Harmony Dental can improve the chances that any suspicious changes in your oral health will be caught early, at a time when cancer can be treated more easily.
