We believe that preventive care is the most important aspect of comprehensive dentistry. Comprehensive dentistry focuses on the diagnosis, the treatment, and the prevention of conditions that affect your teeth, gums, and jaw. Treating dental issues in the early stages can prevent more serious and more costly dental treatments in the future. Maintaining your regular 6-month dental visits, along with proper at-home dental care, can help you prevent future dental problems. We want to help you have a healthy smile.
Comprehensive & Preventive Treatments
Protecting your teeth against damage should be comfortable and simple. Whether you have children who play sports and need an athletic mouthguard, or you want to reduce snoring or TMJ issues with a dental nightguard, we can provide you with the best options at our office. We can design and create customized athletic mouthguards and dental nightguards that are specifically formed to fit your teeth and gums. This makes these dental protective devices much more comfortable and helps them provide better protection for your teeth compared to generic devices that you can buy over the counter. Come see us when you need a dental nightguard or a new athletic mouthguard for one of your family members.
One of the best ways to protect your smile is to schedule routine cleanings for your teeth. Not only do you need to brush and floss daily at home, most people should have at least two professional dental cleanings a year for preventive dental care. This can remove tartar and plaque buildup that can lead to decay and gun disease. Routine professional cleanings can reduce the need for dental treatments, saving you time and money in the long run on caring for your oral health. For those that are struggling with gingivitis or gum disease, we offer deep cleanings that can remove tartar from below the gum lines, helping treatment gum infections and restore healthy gum tissue. Contact us to schedule your next dental cleaning or deep cleaning to protect your smile and oral health.
Kids and teens are more susceptible to decay, especially on their back molars. Food debris can become trapped in crevices and attract bacteria that can produce acids that eat away at the tooth enamel and dentin of the teeth. To help prevent decay between dental cleanings at our office, we offer dental sealants for our patients. This treatment puts a protective, safe covering over the back molars of the teeth, making it harder for bacteria to reach the tooth surface. Sealants are clear and are not noticeable, so they do not impact the look of the smile. In most cases, sealants last for about ten years, usually applied to permanent molars when they arrive to give them protection through the teens years for kids and adolescents.
For strengthening the teeth and protecting them against cavities, fluoride treatments can be a wonderful preventive option for kids and adults. While many cities and towns add fluoride to the water and most dental hygiene products contain fluoride, extra treatments can be beneficial for protecting the teeth against decay. We offer quick and easy fluoride treatments at our office that can be performed during routine exams. Application of a fluoride concentrate to the teeth can be completed in a few minutes. We use a higher concentration than is available over-the-counter in rinses or toothpastes that can give the teeth extra protection. Depending on how susceptible a person is to decay, fluoride treatments may be recommended once or more a year.
Dental exams or checkups are a vital part of preventive care for your smile. The best way to protect your teeth and gums against serious dental issues is to catch problem in the early stages. We offer comprehensive dental exams and individual consultations at our office and suggest our patients come in at least once a year for a checkup. We utilize the latest dental technology for diagnostic procedures to ensure detection of damage, decay or infection. Once the exam is performed, you will receive a consultation with our dentist to discuss any issues found. We use intraoral cameras, a small device that displays your inner mouth on a digital screen. This allows us to show you what we see and help you be involved in your dental treatment plan.
Nocturnal teeth grinding, or clenching, can cause serious damage to the teeth and jaw, as well as cause migraines, headaches and other pain. NTI treatment uses a customized dental mouthguard that fits over only the front teeth and prevents the back teeth from touching. This can stop nighttime clenching and grinding, also called bruxism, protecting the teeth and jaw from damage, while also preventing the strain and pressure that can cause headaches and other pain. NTI treatment can be performed at our office, where we can create a customized oral device for your teeth that will fit comfortably and give you the relief from bruxism.
