Dental Checkups & Cleanings
When you come to see us for your regular appointments, our dentists won’t just give your mouth a thorough exam, but one of our hygienists will also use special tools to remove cavity-causing plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums. These appointments are fast and easy and enable our team to catch small problems before they become larger ones, saving our patients from having to repair more advanced issues.
Nightguards for Bruxism
“Bruxism” might be a new term for you, but the symptoms may be all too familiar: short and worn down teeth, a sore jaw, and frequent headaches in the morning. It’s actually the scientific term for unconscious teeth grinding during sleep, and without treatment, it can spell serious trouble for your smile. To make sure your teeth stay safe while you slumber, we can provide you with a small nightguard to wear to bed, which looks like a mouthpiece that keeps the teeth separated so they can’t damage each other.
Oral Cancer Screenings
During your routine exams, we’ll always take a few minutes to search for the early signs of oral cancer, like suspicious sores, growths, or lesions in your mouth. Detecting the disease during its initial stages enables a patient to start treatment right away if needed, maximizing their chance of a full recovery. If we find anything that may indicate cancer during your appointment, we’ll refer you to a specialist to get a biopsy and diagnosis without delay.
Fluoride is so good for your teeth that it’s added to almost every toothpaste and public water source, and you’ll find it used every day in our office as well! After your cleaning, we’ll coat your teeth with a highly-concentrated fluoride paste that will quickly fortify your enamel and make it more resistant to decay. These treatments, in addition to using a fluoridated toothpaste at home, can easily help a patient stay 100% cavity-free for years at a time!
