Preventive Dentistry Nashville
Your First Step Toward a Lifetime of Oral Wellness
Strong teeth and gums form the foundation for a healthy smile. Dental problems like periodontal disease and tooth decay only get worse if left untreated. A checkup lets us identify these offenders and stop them in their tracks.
During your checkup or new patient exam, Dr. Bush will check your gums for signs of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection of the gums that can cause gum recession, bone shrinkage, and tooth loss. It has also been linked to serious medical conditions, including stroke, heart attack, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Oral cancer is not a rare disease, killing one person every hour in the US. Oral cancer, when found and treated early, has an 80% cure rate. We'll screen you for oral cancer, which spots suspicious lesions even beneath the surface.
We'll also take pictures of your smile with an intraoral camera and display them on a chairside monitor. Dr. Bush will use these images to explain his findings and help you decide which treatments options to pursue for a great smile. Call our Nashville office to learn more about our preventive dentistry services.

Your Smile Says A Lot!
Your smile is the ultimate fashion accessory - you always carry it with you. We want you to look good, feel good and live long to enjoy it. Many people feel that a "smile makeover" is just as important as buying nice clothes or having attractive hair. For those who spend their careers in the public eye, a terrific smile may be considered essential.
With new state-of-the-art cosmetic treatments, Dr. Bush can whiten, straighten, and fill the gaps in your smile. We'll ask you questions about your dental goals, discuss your options for creating your ultimate smile, and design a customized plan to craft you a dazzling smile.
When it comes to your image, your smile means everything. From simple teeth whitening to correction of size, shape, position or replacement of missing teeth, modern cosmetic dentistry is opening new doors of opportunity.
Drs. James and Allen Bush can replace missing teeth, repair damaged teeth, and enhance healthy teeth using tooth-colored restorations, whitening, cosmetic crowns, and dental implant placement and restoration.
We can help you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile. Many of our patients report that cosmetic dental procedures have literally changed their lives. Such procedures have given them a new air of confidence in social situations, and in some cases, have lead to professional advancements in the workplace. Most of our cosmetic reconstruction patients state,
"I wish I would have done this sooner."
