Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
With just two checkups and cleanings each year, our team can take care of any minor oral health issues you might have before you even notice them, plus we can stop many from occurring in the first place. Our team will polish your teeth so they feel like new, and a thorough exam from one of our dentists will make sure potential damage or decay is addressed as quickly as possible.
Most people get enough fluoride from their toothpaste and drinking water to keep their enamel strong, but for some, extra exposure to this helpful mineral is necessary to prevent cavity development. We can simply apply a topical gel to a patient’s teeth as part of their routine cleanings, and after a minute or so, they’ll have an extra layer of protection that will last all the way until their next routine appointment.
Nightguards for Bruxism/ Teeth Grinding
Roughly 1 in 3 Americans unconsciously grind their teeth and clench their jaw while they sleep, which can wear down the teeth and strain the facial muscles, leading to jaw and head pain. Breaking this habit is virtually impossible, but we can help a patient protect their smile and preserve their comfort by having them wear a custom-made nightguard to bed. This places a soft but strong cushion between the rows of teeth to keep them safe while also relieving any pressure from the jaw muscles.
Oral Cancer Screenings
We’ll keep an eye out for more than just cavities during your exams. Oral cancer can affect people of all ages, even those that don’t smoke and drink, so we’ll give you a screening at every appointment. Early detection leads to early treatment, which is proven to be the best way to tackle the disease. If we notice any suspicious growths, sores, or discoloration, we’ll help you get the care you need without delay, maximizing your chances of a fast and full recovery.
