Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
A dental checkup is a detailed exam that gives your dentist the opportunity to look at your teeth, gums, jaw, bite, and existing dental work to make sure everything is in good shape. If they spot definitive signs of decay or wear, they can get ahead of it and often take care of a problem before you even notice it. To that end, a professional teeth cleaning from one of our excellent hygienists will systematically remove hardened plaque (tartar) from your teeth, drastically lowering your risk of cavities and gum disease between appointments.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is often a deadly disease that is actually relatively easy to treat when found early. We use OralID, a special light that causes potentially cancerous tissue to stand out, so we don’t miss a thing during our exams. If you have persistent sores, new growths, or discolored patches of tissue in your mouth, be sure to reach out to us sooner rather than later so we can give you a screening.
Fluoride is found in pretty much every oral healthcare product available today, as it offers an effective and safe way to strengthen enamel and make it less prone to decay. We can give you a big boost of cavity protection during your checkups by applying a concentrated fluoride gel after your cleaning. This will be several times stronger than anything you can buy on your own, and it only takes seconds to do.
Athletic Mouthguards / Sportsguards
Every athlete, whether they are a weekend warrior or professional, should wear a mouthguard before they hit the field, mat, or court. Sports injuries are one of the leading causes of broken and knocked-out teeth, but they can easily be avoided with a custom-made mouthguard from our team. These are custom-shaped to fit an individual, offering a level of comfort and defense that generic store-bought guards simply can’t match.
Nightguards & Occlusal Splints
Millions of Americans unconsciously grind their teeth at night, which can stem from daily stress or simply having an unbalanced bite. In either case, this can result in broken, worn-down teeth that look flat as well as persistent jaw pain and headaches. With nightguards and occlusal splints, patients with these issues just have to wear a small mouthguard to bed that keeps their teeth safe while they slumber.
