The purpose of Preventive Dentistry is to help each of us keep our teeth, and gums healthy today and every day. These services include routine dental cleanings, oral examinations, and preventive x-rays such as bite-wing, panoramic, and full mouth periapicals. Dental problems and diseases can be dramatically minimized, if not prevented, through proper dental hygiene practiced on a regular basis; which includes brushing twice a day, flossing, eating a balanced diet, limiting between-meal snacks, and seeing your dentist twice a year for a cleaning and exam. Additional preventive methods include the application of dental sealants or fluoride treatments directly applied by your dentist.

Nightguards for Bruxism/Teeth Grinding
The American Dental Association estimates that as much as 95% of the population suffers from nighttime teeth grinding or clenching for “at least” a period of time during their lifetime.
If left untreated, bruxism can lead to severe joint problems, sensitivity and tooth fractures. A custom made nightguard can help protect the teeth and joint from the destructive forces of teeth clenching/grinding and can be spotted at you regular cleaning appointment.
