The American Dental Association recommends receiving a checkup and cleaning every six months to keep your teeth and gums healthy. During these visits, our team will thoroughly examine your mouth in search of any signs of oral health problems, like cavities or gum disease. We’ll then review our findings with you and map out a plan to improve your oral health if necessary. Before your visit is over, we’ll polish and clean your teeth, leaving your smile feeling healthy and refreshed.
Oral cancer is estimated to affect 1 in 60 men and 1 in 140 women, according to the American Cancer Society. The key to battling this disease is with routine screenings and early diagnosis, which leads to better treatment outcomes. That’s why our team will conduct a quick, thorough oral cancer screening at each of your bi-annual checkups. We use our advanced VELscope device that uses fluorescence technology to highlight any pre-cancerous or cancerous cells within your oral cavity.
Fluoride is a mineral that’s naturally produced by rocks and found in several organic materials, like fresh fruits and vegetables and the air. It’s also added to local water sources and oral hygiene products due to its ability to strengthen the outermost protective layer of teeth, called the enamel. If you’re not receiving enough fluoride in your daily diet, we can supplement it with a fluoridated gel that we can place on your teeth after your bi-annual cleaning, helping reduce your risk of cavity development.
Nightly teeth grinding, clinically referred to as bruxism, is a common oral condition that can be caused by stress, jaw or oral trauma, or bite misalignment. Over time, the pressure and force from grinding your teeth at night can wear them down, making them more susceptible to cavities and infections, and put you at-risk for breaking or damaging your teeth. With one of our custom-fitted nightguards, you can rest easy knowing that your pearly whites are protected.
