Maintaining good oral hygiene is vital for your overall health. Here at Mark Blum DDS, we emphasize the importance of preventive dentistry in preserving your beautiful smile. By focusing on prevention, we aim to address dental issues before they escalate into serious problems. Through regular dental check-ups and cleanings, we can detect early signs of decay and remove plaque and tartar buildup, protecting your teeth and gums from potential damage.

Dental Examinations and Cleanings

Our experienced dental team conducts thorough examinations to ensure the health of your teeth and gums. Using state-of-the-art technology, including dental X-rays as needed, we can detect hidden dental issues that may not be visible during a regular examination. Our comprehensive dental cleanings involve the removal of plaque and tartar to maintain optimal oral hygiene. With our expertise and attention to detail, we can identify potential problems and provide appropriate treatment promptly.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are an effective preventive measure to protect teeth from decay [1]. Our dental team can apply these thin protective coatings to the chewing surfaces of your back teeth, creating a shield against bacteria and food particles. Dental Sealants also help with tooth sensitivity. By sealing the grooves and pits of your teeth, dental sealants provide an additional layer of defense against cavities. We utilize safe and efficient dental sealant application techniques to safeguard your oral health.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is an essential mineral in preventing tooth decay. Our fluoride treatments can strengthen your tooth enamel, making it more resistant to acid attacks from bacteria [2]. We offer various types of fluoride treatments, such as fluoride gels, varnishes, and rinses, customized to your individual needs. Our dental professionals will guide you through the application process, ensuring the maximum benefit from fluoride in preventing dental decay.


Protecting your teeth during physical activities is crucial to avoiding dental injuries. At Mark Blum DDS, we provide custom-made mouthguards, offering superior comfort and protection. Whether you participate in contact sports or enjoy recreational activities, our mouthguards are designed to fit your mouth perfectly, safeguarding your teeth from potential trauma. Trust our expertise in tooth protection to keep your smile healthy and intact.

Oral Cancer Screening

Early detection is key when it comes to oral cancer. Our comprehensive dental examinations include thorough oral cancer screenings [3]. With our skilled team and advanced screening techniques, we can identify any signs or symptoms of oral cancer at its earliest stages. By promoting regular screenings and educating patients about risk factors, we prioritize your oral health and strive to ensure your peace of mind.
