Preventive care is the best way to ensure your smile is happy and healthy. The services offered at Bow Tie Dentist are designed to help you stay on top of your oral health needs and prevent more serious issues from ever appearing.

Instead of visiting the dentist when you know something is wrong, preventive appointments at Bow Tie Dentist help address even the smallest dental issues before they become more severe.

What to Expect During Your Preventive Care Appointment

At Bow Tie Dentist, you are in safe and competent hands. Palm Harbor dentist Dr. Saimon Ramos will perform routine dental checks to get a better sense of your oral health and spot any issues that need addressing before they become a bigger (and more painful) problem. 

The exact services you receive will depend on your individual oral health needs, but you can rest assured Dr. Ramos will provide a thorough check-up, and create a personalized treatment plan for your unique smile.

Preventive Care Treatment Options

Cleaning and hygiene

Professional cleaning and hygiene treatments are the best way to make sure your teeth and gums are as healthy as can be.

Digital X-rays

Digital x-rays help us see if any issues are lurking beneath the surface so we can get a complete picture of your current dental health for more accurate diagnoses and treatment planning.

Fluoride treatments

Fluoride treatments provide your teeth with a much higher concentration of fluoride than what is found in toothpaste. These treatments can improve the strength of your teeth and are done under the strict supervision of Dr. Ramos.

Dental sealants

Dental sealants are permanent resin coats, applied to seal deep grooves in a tooth. By sealing or coating these deep grooves you'll minimize the chances of a cavity developing. No tooth structure is removed, therefore there is no compromise on the integrity of your tooth.

Periodontal care

Taking care of your gums is just as important as taking care of your teeth! Dr. Ramos will inspect your gums, and your hygienist will remove any plaque or tartar buildup. Dr. Ramos and his hygiene team will make sure your gums are in great shape.

Oral cancer screenings

Although oral cancer is relatively rare, it is unfortunately on the rise. Regular oral cancer screenings go hand in hand with early detection and can even save your life!


There are many benefits to getting fitted for a nightguard, from relieving jaw pain to preventing tooth wear. Dr. Ramos will help you decide if a nightguard is a good option for you.

Do I need preventive care treatment?

Does my insurance cover preventive care?

Give us a call at (727) 789-1212 to speak with one of our friendly team members and find out how to maximize your benefits.

Are dental fillings a preventive treatment?

No, dental fillings are considered a restorative treatment. With regular checkups and good oral hygiene practices, like brushing twice a day, flossing once, and avoiding sugary, acidic foods, you can minimize your risk of tooth decay, and be less likely to need fillings or other restorative treatments.
