Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
We suggest that all patients attend at least two regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings each year, and maybe more if you are experiencing a chronic condition like periodontal disease. During these visits, our dentists and staff members are sure to be as comprehensive as possible in our approach, reviewing each individual tooth, the gum tissue, the bite, the jaw, any existing restorative work like crowns and fillings and more. Digital X-rays will help us find any concerns that are hidden beneath the surface of your smile as well. After we have clearly identified any problems, we will work with you to devise a treatment plan that fits your needs and respects your budget.
Teeth cleanings are also important for children and adults alike because they remove the sticky, bacteria-filled film known as plaque that forms along the surfaces of teeth and hardens into calculus (tartar) over time. In order to help prevent tooth decay, our team will professionally remove these harmful substances and minor stains to leave smiles refreshed.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Bruxism (teeth grinding) can be a common ailment resulting in gradual tooth wear-and-tear, severe headaches, jaw pain and other troubling symptoms over time. Our dentists can design a customized oral appliance, known as a nightguard, to combat the condition and protect your valuable smile from harm. When worn during sleep, the nightguard will minimize contact between teeth and protect the jaw joints allowing patients to rest easier.
Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally in many foods and sources of water. Most communities have also added it to municipal water supplies. Research has shown that drinking fluoridated water on a regular basis can lead to stronger enamel overall and fewer instances of cavities by helping teeth become more resistant against the acid that food and plaque creates. If you and your family are not receiving the exposure you need to enjoy these benefits, our team may recommend professional fluoride applications as a part of routine appointments.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer screenings are an important part of regular examinations, during which one of our dentists will carefully check the face, tongue, neck, gums and lips for tell-tale symptoms that could indicate abnormal tissues. Our goal is to help you identify this dangerous health condition as soon as possible, which greatly increases the chances of a full and successful recovery down the road.
