General dentistry is a fundamental part of the defense against oral infections. While maintaining a proper oral hygiene routine is crucial, regular dental appointments at Panneton Dental Group will give your smile added protection and extra shine.
The best way to take care of your oral health is by practicing prevention. Panneton Dental Group created a preventive program for patients to ensure beautiful, healthy smiles for a lifetime. Our preventive program is a cooperative effort made by dentists, patients, and our dental team to preserve the natural dentition and supporting mouth structures. It works by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of oral diseases and dental issues.

Our Comprehensive Services
Teeth Cleanings and Exams
Maintaining a regular oral hygiene routine at home is of the utmost importance when it comes to your dental care. Despite regular brushing and flossing, there are hard-to-reach areas that can still accumulate tartar and harbor unwanted bacteria. These bacteria can cause tooth decay, gum disease, and lead to invasive treatments down the line if they’re not professionally removed.
Scheduling routine dental visits allow our team to thoroughly clean your teeth and gums, getting rid of any bacteria and built-up plaque. We encourage patients to schedule regular dental checkups at our Omaha or La Vista office once every six months, or at least twice a year. During this visit, we provide full mouth examinations, detect any possible dental issues, and thoroughly clean your teeth for a sparkling smile.
Dental x-rays are an integral part of your routine dental appointment. These high-quality images are taken to accurately and safely detect any hidden dental abnormalities. They also help us provide you with a customized treatment plan that’ll effectively treat any issues. Our x-rays are completely safe, fast, and only taken when necessary.
Prexion® 3D Imaging
We utilize Prexion® 3D imaging for an in-depth view of any specific area of the patient’s face. With Prexion, we can see the bone structure, bone density, tissues, and nerves in greater detail. This helps us provide a more accurate diagnosis and personalized treatment planning. Our Prexion scanner is quick, easy, and comfortable — leaving patients with a positive experience, shorter treatment time, and enhanced results.
Periodontal (gum) disease is an inflammatory condition that affects the supporting and surrounding soft tissues of the teeth. Our Omaha & La Vista dentists offer periodontal treatment to reverse the effects of gum disease and get your oral health back on track. No matter how advanced your gum disease is, we feature a variety of treatments to ensure you get the care you need.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! Even if you practice good oral hygiene, your teeth can still accumulate plaque which can harbor unwanted bacteria. Plaque can harden into tartar, which can only be removed professionally at the dentist’s office. The bacteria found in both of these substances can lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and other oral health issues. That’s why it’s important to visit your general dentist for professional dental cleanings and examinations at least once every six months.
To ensure your mouth and teeth stay healthy, you must practice good oral hygiene. Good oral hygiene includes:
- Brushing your teeth twice a day
- Flossing daily
- Rinsing in between meals
- Visiting your general dentist for biannual exams at Panneton Dental Group
By keeping up with your oral hygiene routine and seeing your dentist for regular exams, you’ll be able to minimize the chances of gum disease and tooth decay.
