Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
Most people need at least two checkups and cleanings each year no matter how old they are. It’s important for us to examine the teeth and gums on a regular basis so that we can identify signs of decay and disease in their very earliest stages when they’re easier to treat. We may take X-rays to check for problems that would be hidden from the naked eye, and we’ll always take the time to clean the areas of your mouth where you haven’t been able to brush as well.
Simply put, fluoride makes your teeth stronger and protects them against decay. You can get fluoride from certain foods and the tap water in most communities; you’ll also find it in any toothpaste that has been approved by the ADA. If your teeth could use a little additional protection against cavities, we’re more than happy to give you extra fluoride during your next appointment. Don’t worry – it will only take a few minutes and won’t cause any discomfort.
Custom Nightguards for Teeth Grinding
Bacteria aren’t the only threat to your teeth. They can actually wear themselves down if you clench or grind them together on a regular basis. Oftentimes, this grinding takes place while you’re asleep and don’t have full control over your actions. However, you can still protect your teeth by wearing a mouthguard to stop them from making direct contact with each other, thus preventing any further wear and tear while you get a well-deserved night’s rest.
Oral Cancer Screening
Did you know that oral cancer is the sixth most common form of cancer? Despite what many people think, it doesn’t just affect smokers; anyone can get it. At every oral exam, we’ll take the extra time to check for discolored tissue, suspicious lumps and bumps, and other irregular symptoms that might indicate that there might be cancerous cells in or around your oral cavity. We can refer you to another physician if we find any symptoms that might call for a biopsy.
