An active lifestyle should include good preventative oral care. Semi-annual check-ups allow for early detection of potential problems and disease, a critical factor to prevent dental issues in the future.
Making Great Smiles Come True
For proper preventative treatment, we encourage all of our patients to visit us at least once every six months.
During these semi-annual appointments, we will provide a thorough dental cleaning and exam; any developing issues such as gum disorders like gingivitis and periodontal disease or damage to the teeth in the form of decay/tiny cavities/small cracks will be identified and treated before they worsen.
Depending on the findings from your exam, we’ll plan office visits to quickly restore your smile back to health.
& Teeth Cleanings
For the healthiest mouth and most beautiful smile, the American Dental Association recommends every patient, adults and children, should have a dental checkup and cleaning at least twice each calendar year. Why? Semi-annual check-ups allow us to examine, diagnose and treat any potential problems at their earliest, most benign stages. Many types of infection and damage go unnoticed by you or your children; as dental professionals, our team is trained to detect even subtle abnormalities in the mouth when we see you every six months. These appointments help maintain your family’s healthy mouths and brilliant smiles well into the future.
Dental sealants help protect teeth from surface-level decay for up to 10 years or even longer. The simple treatment consists of a thin, plastic film applied directly to the chewing surfaces of the premolars and molars – your back teeth. Dental sealants effectively and comfortably protect back teeth from both attracting food particles that stick in tooth grooves and infectious bacteria, making them more resistant to cavities. The results? Healthy teeth, gums and a brilliant smile today and tomorrow.
Did you know that the American Dental Association recommends a child’s first visit to the dentist is within six months after the baby's first tooth appears, but no later than the child's first birthday? You can trust even your youngest to us - we are truly a family practice, having expertise in pediatric through adult dentistry. We know how to help children feel safe and comfortable, developing a strong foundation of good oral health through age appropriate care. As your child matures, so does our treatment approach. Proper dental care for all children is important; it leads to healthier mouths in adulthood and a lifelong positive attitude towards dental care.
Nightguards For Bruxism
Do you or someone in your family suffer with jaw discomfort or pain on chewing surfaces of the back teeth? If so, you may be experiencing Bruxism (also known as involuntary “teeth grinding”), a common and serious mostly sleep-time habit. This condition leads to symptoms of chronic jaw discomfort and worn-down tooth surfaces. You may not even be aware that you are grinding during your sleep; however, our team can quickly identify the presence of bruxism and fit you with a custom-made nightguard, preventing harmful dental contact and keeping teeth safer.
Fluoride is a valuable mineral that is found in our tap water, and various over-the-counter oral hygiene products. Decades of research has proven a strong positive link between safe exposure to fluoride and healthier, stronger teeth that are less prone to decay. When a patient needs a fluoride boost to improve oral health and tooth protection, we’ll add a professional fluoride application as a part of regular checkups and cleanings.
Gum Disease Treatments
Periodontal disease (or gum disease) is a serious infection that must be treated as soon as it’s discovered. It is a common adult ailment, causing the most tooth loss in the United States. Once identified, our team will recommend the appropriate treatment including more frequent deep cleanings and checkups. To preserve your teeth and overall oral health, catching and treating gum disease in its early stages is best.
If you notice any type of dental pain or damage or think you are having a dental emergency, we urge you to contact us as soon as possible to receive the necessary dental care you need.
