Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

A professional dental cleaning every six months will remove plaque and tartar buildup. Regular dental exams will also help us detect decay or infection in your teeth and gums at an early stage. This can keep treatment at a minimum and help you avoid dental emergencies. Gum disease, cavities, and other dental problems are easier to treat when caught right away! X-rays can be performed when needed and give our dental team important information concerning your smile.

 

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer affects thousands of people each year. Without early detection, the chances of survival are slim. Fortunately, our dental office completes an oral cancer screening during regularly scheduled checkups. We will visually examine your oral anatomy to ensure there are no lesions or abnormalities that might point to a serious problem. If so, we’ll refer you to a specialist for further testing.

 

Fluoride Treatment

If you are prone to cavities, you may need additional help receiving adequate fluoride protection. Often found in toothpaste, tap water, and various fruits and vegetables, an added application by our team can be beneficial for anyone who is considered at high risk for dental caries. It takes little time to apply, is completely painless, and teeth can remain thoroughly protected in between appointments.

 

Dental Sealants

Protecting your teeth from decay can help you maintain a healthy smile! Dental sealants are one way that you can prevent decay. Sealants are a clear plastic coating that is placed on the back molars. By keeping these hard-to-reach areas safe, you can avoid both cavities and decay. If you do not have dental sealants, call today to set up a dental visit!

 

Nightguards for Bruxism

Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is an unhealthy habit that many patients experience. When the upper and lower arches make contact while you sleep, the enamel can become worn down, resulting in tooth sensitivity as well as an increased risk for tooth decay. By providing you with a customized nightguard, we can help to minimize the damage to your smile while preventing your teeth from touching throughout the night.

 

Children’s Dentistry

Young smiles deserve exceptional dental care. This is why we provide various children’s dentistry services to ensure the health and proper development of your child’s smile. From fluoride treatments and dental sealants to regular six-month checkups, we can show your little one the attention they deserve as well as tips to maintain a healthier, more beautiful smile as they grow older.

 

Silver Diamine Fluoride

When a cavity already exists, we can use silver diamine fluoride to stop the spread and effectively kill the bacteria. Oftentimes, it may be too late for fluoride to prevent decay that has already formed; however, by applying this useful substance, we can minimize further damage to the tooth structure. This is especially helpful for children who may not require a complete filling yet.
