Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

Keeping teeth and gums free of decay and disease requires routine dental care. Apart from the oral hygiene habits you practice at home, you are encouraged to keep six-month dental checkup and teeth cleaning appointments with our team. Not only will we examine your smile to identify any problem areas, but we’ll also clear away accumulated plaque and tartar to reduce the potential for gum disease. This will help to keep your oral health in better shape throughout the year.

Oral Cancer Screening

With more than 54,000 people diagnosed each year with oral cancer, we believe early detection is critical, and it is why we offer oral cancer screenings during regular dental appointments. These painless and non-invasive examinations allow us to look at your cheeks, throat, lips, neck, and tongue to determine if lesions, discolored patches, or sores are evident. We’ll work to get you the help you need should there be any cause for concern during your examination.

Fluoride Treatment

If you or a loved one is prone to cavities, you might need additional fluoride treatment to better protect your teeth. Although it is present in city tap water, various foods, and in toothpaste, your exposure may not be enough to keep decay from forming. With a quick and pain-free fluoride application during your visit, though, we can better protect your pearly whites from suffering the effects of dental cavities and the need for restorative care.

Nightguards for Bruxism

Bruxism is a common symptom that is associated with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. When teeth begin to grind and clench throughout the night, it not only damages tooth enamel but also leads to chronic jaw pain. If headaches and soreness throughout the jaw and neck begin to form, it can create problems that affect your day-to-day life.

However, with a custom-made nightguard, our team can craft an oral appliance that protects your pearly whites while you sleep. When worn at night, your teeth will be unable to touch, alleviating the pressure on your jaw joints and keeping your tooth enamel intact.
