Preventive Dental Procedures

Dental Check-ups

At an exam, your dentist will check for cavities or other potential issues with your teeth or gums. Regular check-ups are important not only for your dental health, but for your overall health and well-being.

Teeth Cleaning

You should brush and floss your teeth at home to keep your teeth clean. However, a cleaning at your dentist’s office is the best way to remove the build-up of tartar. The process of removing tartar is called scaling. A cleaning also includes polishing and flossing.

Digital X-rays

X-rays are necessary to detect cavities in-between your teeth that your dentist cannot reach during an examination. At our office, we use digital x-rays which produce less radiation than traditional X-rays. They also return your images more quickly so we can review the scans right away.

Dental Sealants

Sometimes we need a bit of additional protection against cavities and decay. A dental sealant is a protective coating of plastic material that is painted onto your teeth to prevent bacteria and food from accumulating in small crevices.

Custom Mouthguards

Whether it’s for sleeping or playing a sport, we offer mouthguards to safeguard your smile. The customized fit provides better protection than over-the-counter options.

Headache Prevention

Oftentimes, chronic headaches can be linked to your TMJ. Through the use of mouthpieces that reposition the jaw while you sleep, we can help eliminate your headaches and get you back to life as normal.

Dental Treatments

Fluoride is a natural mineral proven to fight against cavities. You can find it in your toothpaste, mouthwash, and even the water we drink. Once a deep cleaning has been performed, an additional amount of fluoride can be applied in the form of a rinse, foam, or gel.

TMJ/TMD Therapy

TMJ disorders can be caused by a number of factors, including bruxism, arthritis, or a jaw injury. Our team will determine the root cause and create a treatment plan to correct it. Treatments include custom oral appliances, physical therapy, and a combination of the two.

Sleep Apnea Appliances
