& Teeth Cleanings
When you come in for a checkup and cleaning, our team will not only remove cavity-causing plaque and tartar from the hard-to-reach spots in your mouth, but your dentist will also give you an extensive exam. This allows us to find potential issues and take care of them way before you notice that anything might be wrong.
Bruxism refers to unconscious teeth grinding, which for most people, only occurs while they sleep. This can severely damage the teeth over time, but we can help you rest easy and keep your smile safe with a nightguard. This custom appliance is worn only to bed and places a soft but sturdy barrier between the rows of teeth to prevent any unwanted contact.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that has been shown to strengthen enamel and make it more resistant to cavities. This is why it’s added to so many oral healthcare products and community water sources. For patients who need an extra boost of protection, we can apply a highly-concentrated form of fluoride during their regular checkups and cleanings.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer is often deadly, but it can easily be treated if caught early. This is why an oral cancer screening is a standard part of our routine checkups. If we find any suspicious growths or sores during your visit, we’ll help you get a diagnosis right away. If needed, treatment can begin immediately, providing the best chance for a fast and full recovery.
Our dental office has been around so long that many of our child patients are now bringing their own children to see us! We know how to help little patients feel comfortable during their appointments, and in addition to checkups and cleanings, we also take the time to teach them about oral hygiene so they’ll adopt healthy habits as soon as possible.
