Superior care doesn’t only mean we fix smiles. It also signifies our dedication to ensure your entire family’s smiles are healthy and free from dental disease (tooth decay, cavities, etc.). At every checkup, Dr. Shivani Kant will thoroughly assess the health of your gums, teeth, and overall health with modern technologies (Intra-oral Camera, Velscope, Microscopic Dentistry, etc.) to catch any signs of small issues before they become serious (and expensive!) problems. At Smile Marysville, we’re proud to provide a wide range of family dentistry services, including:

As advocates for your oral and overall health, we’re always taking proactive action to keep you healthy and avoid future, expensive dental work. That’s why Dr. Kant offers microscopic dentistry, which can screen you for harmful bacteria and periodontal disease. Just by taking a saliva sample and analyzing it under a microscope, Dr. Kant can find early warning signs of periodontal disease. This early detection helps us take action and prevent tooth loss and other oral-systemic health issues.
You already know it’s essential to visit the dentist every six months. When you visit Smile Marysville, your hygiene visits are far from routine. With dental hygiene, our hygienists are trained to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth that regular brushing and flossing cannot accomplish.
Regular dental checkups are essential to keeping your oral health in good shape. During your exam, Dr. Kant and her team will assess the health of your teeth and gums using a modern intra-oral camera to inspect your mouth. This innovative piece of equipment projects images from inside your mouth onto a computer screen, so you can see what we see.
Brushing and flossing your teeth daily is vital to maintaining a healthy smile, but even with a solid routine, food or debris can get missed. This is especially true for our younger patients, where reaching every tooth can be difficult. To help with this, Dr. Kant offers sealants, a clear gel that fills in gaps or grooves on the tooth, preventing food and debris from becoming stuck and leading to plaque and decay.
Fluoride is an important key to maintaining oral health. Without enough fluoride, your teeth are more at risk of decay and plaque build-up. To help re-establish your fluoride we offer a quick treatment that involves applying a fluoride solution or gel to your teeth.
Along with your teeth, gums play an important role in optimum oral health. They are the foundation for keeping your smile healthy. If you don’t take care of your gums through regular dental checkups and everyday brushing and flossing, then you’re putting your oral and overall health at serious risk.
If your tooth becomes badly damaged or infected, the only way to save it may be through a root canal. This procedure is used when a cracked tooth or dental cavity affects the inside of your tooth (the pulp). A root canal involves removing the infection or damaged area of the tooth, cleaning it, and then disinfecting it. Finally, Dr. Kant will fill and seal the tooth using a filling or crown.
Mouthguards can be both helpful for protecting your teeth and preventing major dental issues from occurring. We are pleased to offer two types of custom-fit mouthguards at Smile Marysville: Night guards & Sports guards.
