Dental Exams & Cleanings
Routine dental exams and cleanings provide a thorough examination of your teeth and gums to keep your oral health on track. These visits should occur at least twice a year. For patients who need more care, we may suggest more frequent visits. By keeping up with dental exams and cleanings, you lower your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems.
Fluoride is a natural mineral found in foods and water. When fluoride treatment is applied by one of our dental professionals, fluoride can prevent tooth decay, strengthen tooth enamel, and reverse minor tooth decay to maintain and save your natural teeth.
Sealants are thin, clear, and durable coatings that are applied to the chewing surface of the teeth. The dental sealants protect the grooves of the teeth from accumulating plaque and tartar, preventing tooth decay. Children and adults can benefit from dental sealants.
In cases when gingivitis or periodontal disease is detected, our office provides periodontal treatment to help restore health to the gums and bones that support teeth. Periodontal treatment can include scaling and root planing or deep cleaning pockets around the teeth.
While fun, high contact sports or athletic activities can place your oral health at risk. An athletic mouthguard is an excellent option for the protection of your teeth and can help reduce injury. Here, we offer custom athletic mouthguards to help you participate confidently and comfortably in sports.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Bruxism, also known as teeth grinding, can damage teeth slowly and cause patients to wake up with headaches or jaw pain. In cases like these, nightguards for bruxism can prevent teeth grinding from wearing down your enamel. If you suffer from grinding or wake up with headaches, our team would be happy to help custom fit a night guard for your mouth.
Sleep Apnea Appliances
Do you still feel tired after sleeping? Being tired is one sign that you may be experiencing sleep apnea. Sleep apnea appliances other than a CPAP machine can give you a greater chance of getting good rest and treating sleep apnea symptoms. When you come into our office, our team can help select a sleep apnea appliance that will benefit you.Contact Us
