Cleanings & Exams

Cleanings and exams are fundamental to maintaining optimal oral health and preventing dental issues. Regular professional cleanings, performed by skilled and thorough dental hygienists, removes plaque and tartar buildup and reduces the risk of cavities and gum disease. Our team assesses the overall health of the teeth and gums during dental exams. We check for signs of decay, infection, and other possible issues. Routine appointments provide an opportunity to discuss oral hygiene practices, address questions or concerns, and develop personalized treatment plans where needed. Our patients take proactive steps to preserve their smiles by scheduling regular cleanings and exams. These cleanings and exams allow us to detect issues early on, and create a solid foundation for long-term dental health and well being.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer screenings are a crucial aspect of dental care. These screenings detect the early signs of oral cancer. The examination is a routine part of dental check-ups, and is a thorough assessment of the mouth, tongue, and surrounding tissues. We are trained to identify abnormalities and investigate further where it is necessary.

Early detection of oral cancer greatly improves the chances of successful treatment and recovery. The screening process is quick, painless, and an essential component of preventive dentistry. By integrating oral cancer screening into regular dental appointments, our patients benefit from early intervention, which ensures the best outcome. Our commitment to proactive care promotes the well-being of our patients.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are an effective preventative measure for children and adolescents. These thin, protective coatings are applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and create a barrier that seals out bacteria and food particles. The process is the quick and painless application of a tooth-colored resin that bonds to the enamel. Dental sealants act as a shield, and prevent the development of cavities in the grooves and fissures of the teeth. These are the most challenging areas to clean with regular brushing. This safeguards against decay, which is common in the back teeth where most chewing occurs.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride treatment strengthens tooth enamel and prevents tooth decay. In this treatment, a concentrated fluoride solution is applied to the teeth. It aids in the remineralization process and makes tooth enamel more resistant to bacteria and plaque. The procedure is recommended for both children, and adults, to bolster the health of their teeth. Fluoride maintains strong, healthy tooth enamel.

Periodontal Care & Maintenance

Periodontal care and maintenance focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions that affect the supporting structures of the teeth, gums and jaw by preventing and treating gum disease. Symptoms include gum inflammation, bleeding, and infection. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are vital to monitoring and maintaining the health of the gums. Additionally, scaling and root planing procedures may be recommended to remove plaque and tartar from below the gumline to prevent the progression of periodontal disease.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep apnea is characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep. This leads to various health issues including fatigue, cardiovascular problems, and impaired cognition. Treatment options often involve lifestyle changes such as weight management. Oral appliances may be recommended to reposition the jaw and tongue to prevent airway blockages.

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy is a common and effective method. Sleep apnea treatment improves sleep quality, reduces the health risks associated with poor sleep, and enhances overall well being.

TMJ Treatment

TMJ (temporomandibular joint) treatment addresses issues related to the jaw joint and the muscles that control the jaw. TMJ disorders cause symptoms such as jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds, difficulty chewing, and headaches. Treatment options often begin with conservative measures such as jaw exercises and the use of oral appliances to reduce clenching or grinding. Interventions such as physical therapy, medications, or injections may be recommended to alleviate pain and inflammation in severe cases. Dentists may also provide guidance on stress management techniques because stress is often a contributing factor to teeth clenching and grinding.

Custom Fit Mouth Guards

Custom fit mouth guards are a vital tool in preventive dental care. They offer custom protection for the teeth and jaw during various activities. Unlike generic, one-size-fits-all options, custom fit mouth guards are crafted to the specific contours of an individual's mouth. They provide a more comfortable and secure fit. These oral appliances safeguard against dental injuries from sports, and prevent teeth grinding during sleep. Customized mouth guards minimize the risk of dental trauma.

Night Mouth Guard

A custom fit night mouth guard prevents teeth grinding, also known as bruxism.

Sports Mouth Guard

A custom fit sports mouth guard helps to prevent oral injuries to athletes.
