Dental Checkups & Cleanings for Adults & Kids
The American Dental Association recommends that you visit your dentist once every six months for a routine checkup and cleaning. During these appointments, we’ll examine your teeth and gums for signs of common oral health problems, like gum disease or cavities. If we do spot any issues, we’ll propose our recommended treatment plan and walk you through how it will work. Finally, before you leave, we’ll clear any plaque or tartar from the surface of your teeth and polish them, leaving your mouth refreshed.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Have you noticed that your molars appear worn down and your teeth are sensitive? These are two common signs that you grind and clench your teeth at night, which is a condition known as bruxism. To protect your teeth and jaw joints, we offer custom-crafted nightguards that are made from a durable, easy-to-clean acrylic material. As long as you wear it every night, you can minimize your risk of waking up with a broken tooth or developing TMJ dysfunction as a result of your condition.
Fluoride is a naturally derived mineral that’s produced by rocks and found in a variety of other items, like fresh fruits and vegetables. It’s also added to local water sources and oral hygiene products like toothpaste to prevent the formation of cavities by strengthening the enamel, which is the outermost protective layer of teeth. If we notice that you may not be receiving enough fluoride in your daily diet, we can supplement it with a fluoridated varnish or gel.
Oral Cancer Screenings
At each of your routine checkups, we’ll also conduct an oral cancer screening. This only takes a couple of minutes but has the potential to save a patients’ life by increasing the chances for successful treatment if the disease is caught in its earliest stages. Our dentists examine the lips, throat, and oral cavity for signs of cancer, like abnormalities or rough red and white patches within the mouth. If we spot anything, we’ll be sure to inform you and refer you for additional specialized testing.
