Preventative Care

Family Dentist

New Patient Appointments

During your initial visit, we allocate approximately 1 to 1.5 hours for your complete evaluation and cleaning. At times, we may schedule an emergency checkup to address any pressing needs. Our professional team is trained to diagnose and treat any dental or gum problems. We support our patients with multiple payment options to ensure the continuity of their dental care. We prioritize your comfort and strive to provide you with the necessary tools to achieve optimal dental health.

Routine Hygiene Appointments

It is advisable to maintain regular dental check-ups every six months for preventive maintenance. Upon completion of your first hygiene appointment, our expert team consisting of a hygienist and a dentist will provide guidance on the recommended interval that is best suited to your needs. In certain cases, it may be necessary to schedule more frequent recall visits. This could be due to potential periodontal concerns or oral hygiene issues. Rest assured, our team of professionals will provide you with personalized attention and guidance based on your specific dental requirements.

Periodontal Treatment

According to recent statistics, 47.2% of adults aged 30 years and older are affected by some form of periodontal disease, with the incidence of the disease increasing with age. Approximately 70.1% of adults aged 65 and older suffer from periodontal disease. During your first hygiene appointment, we perform a thorough periodontal exam on each patient, which is recertified annually. If any localized or generalized periodontal concerns are detected, we may suggest a different initial cleaning or recall schedule for your hygiene appointments. We have collaborated closely with several highly respected gum specialists, periodontists in the Nashville area, and we may refer you to them if necessary. Your periodontal diagnosis is crucial to us, as we value your gingival health just as much as your teeth. We are aware of the importance of your periodontal health and its relationship with many bodily systems.

Pediatric Dental Appointments

Professional dental organizations recommend that your child’s first dental evaluation should occur within 6 months since their first tooth eruption, or by 12 months of age. At Nashville Dental Studio, we provide dental care to patients of all ages. Although it may appear to be a simple cleaning session, our main objective is to create a comfortable dental home for your child and provide you, as a parent, with the most effective ways to maintain your child’s oral health. We introduce dental hygiene practices and techniques tailored specifically for your child during each appointment. Here at Nashville Dental Studio, we value families, and we are committed to ensuring that every member of your family receives the best dental care possible.


At approximately ages 6 and 12, permanent molars begin to erupt in a child’s mouth. These teeth typically have more pronounced pits and grooves compared to primary teeth. Our practice recommends sealants to be placed on these teeth to help fill in any difficult-to-clean areas. This involves a straightforward procedure where a resin material is applied to the tooth. No dental anesthetic is required, but we do ask for cooperation from the patient. While not all children or teeth are suitable for sealants, we strive to apply them to freshly erupted permanent teeth whenever possible. Should your child be a candidate, we will provide guidance on this course of action at the appropriate time. In some cases, adults may also be candidates for sealants. The cost-effective nature of sealants makes them a prime choice to prevent decay on the chewing surfaces of teeth.

Mouth and Night Guards

Mouth guards and night guards offer protection and alleviate pain related to clenching or grinding. Mouth guards are tailored to fit an individual’s teeth for better comfort and compliance, which is particularly important for contact sports. Night guards may be recommended for patients who show signs of bruxism, which can lead to damage to the teeth and gingiva. Additionally, night guards can be fabricated in-office to provide pain relief associated with clenching and grinding. Patients who have previously had a night guard created in a dental office should bring it to their appointments for evaluation if they think they may need a replacement.
