One of the best ways to protect your pearly smile is to schedule routine professional cleanings for your teeth. For preventive dental care, not only do you need to brush and floss daily at home, but you also need to have professional dental cleanings twice a year. This can help remove plaque and tartar buildup that can lead to decay and gum disease. Routine cleanings can reduce the need for dental treatments, saving you time and money in the long run. For those struggling with gingivitis or gum disease, we offer deep cleanings that can remove tartar from below the gum lines. Our deep cleanings will help treat gum infections and will help make your gum
tissues healthy again. Contact us to schedule your next deep cleaning.
As compared to adults, kids and teens are more vulnerable to decay, especially on their back molars. Food debris can become trapped in crevices. Unfortunately, this can attract bacteria that produce acids that eat away your child’s tooth enamel and dentin. To help prevent dental decay, we offer dental sealants for our patients. This unique treatment puts a protective, safe covering over the teeth’s back molars, making it harder for bacteria to reach the tooth’s surface. Sealants are clear and invisible, so they do not impact the look of your child’s smile. Sealants are usually applied to permanent molars to give them protection through the teenage years for kids and adolescents.
For teeth strengthening and protection against cavities, fluoride treatments can be an amazing option for kids and adults. While many towns and cities add fluoride to the tap water, and most oral hygiene products contain fluoride, extra treatments can still be beneficial for protecting your teeth against decay. For that, we offer quick and easy fluoride treatments at our office that can be performed during routine exams. The application of a fluoride concentrate on the teeth can be completed in a few minutes. The concentration we use is higher than in any over-the-counter rinses or toothpaste. Depending on how vulnerable a person is to decay, fluoride treatments may be recommended once or twice a year.
Dental exams or checkups are an essential part of preventive care for your smile. We offer comprehensive oral exams and individual consultations at our office. We suggest our patients visit us at least once a year for a checkup. We use the latest technology for diagnostic procedures to ensure in-depth detection of infection, decay, or damage. Once the exam is over, you will receive a consultation with our dentist to discuss any issues. We make use of intra oral cameras, which allows us to show you what we see and helps you get involved in your treatment.
Nocturnal teeth grinding or clenching can damage your teeth and jaw and can cause headaches, migraines, and other pains. NTI treatment uses a customized dental night guard that fits only the front teeth and prevents the back teeth from touching. This can stop nighttime clenching and grinding, protecting your teeth and jaw from damage. We carry out NTI treatment at our office, where we create a customized mouth guard for your teeth that will fit comfortably and will relieve bruxism.
