Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
Patients of all ages should have their teeth examined and cleaned at least twice a year. Each checkup involves looking for warning signs of dental decay and infection on the teeth, gums, tongue, throat, cheeks, and other parts of the mouth. Also, if we find any plaque and tartar in the spots where you haven’t been brushing very well, we will remove them to prevent decay and infection over the long term. We may also ask a few questions about your brushing and flossing habits and give you some advice on how you can improve your oral care routine.
Nightguards for Bruxism
If your teeth have been more sensitive than normal and you’ve been regularly waking up with a sore jaw, you might be unconsciously grinding and clenching your teeth at night. The most reliable way to stop further damage that could result in a dental emergency is a custom-made nightguard. You can buy nightguards over the counter, but the ones that we provide will be customized to fit your mouth exactly for the best possible protection as well as improved comfort.
Oral Cancer Screening
One person dies of oral cancer every hour. To improve your odds of survival, you’ll want your condition to be diagnosed in its very earliest stages. We can check for the warning signs of oral cancer during your regular checkups. We’ll look out for oral sores, red and white patches inside the mouth, and other worrisome warning signs. Depending on what we find, we might need to make arrangements for a biopsy to be performed.
When we recommend oral hygiene products to use at home, we always make sure that they contain fluoride, an important mineral for keeping the tooth enamel healthy. We also use fluoride treatments in our dental office to strengthen your teeth and improve the protection they provide until your next appointment. Fluoride treatments can be completed in just a few minutes and can greatly lower the risk of cavity development between dental visits. We’ll also gladly recommend dental products that can make a difference in your daily oral hygiene routine.
