& Teeth Cleanings
The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months for a checkup and cleaning to make sure that your gums and teeth remain healthy. Even if you’re diligent about brushing and flossing every day at home, it’s still important to come in so we can professionally examine and clean your mouth. We’ll capture X-rays of the area of your mouth that lies below your gums and thoroughly clear away all plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth. If you need any additional treatment, we’ll discuss the issue with you in depth and make sure that you have all the information you need to make the best decision for your oral health.
Do you wake up with a sore jaw or headache? These are common signs that you may be grinding and clenching your teeth in your sleep, also known as a condition called bruxism. The constant force and pressure of this action can wear down your enamel and put you at a higher risk of breaking or cracking a tooth. In order to reduce your risk of developing more issues down the road, you’ll need to protect your teeth with a nightguard. We craft ours from a cushioning, durable acrylic that will stand the test of time while keeping your pearly whites safe.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral produced by rocks that can be found in the air, water, and fresh fruits and vegetables. Your body uses it to strengthen your enamel, which is the outermost layer of your teeth that protects them from cavities. When you don’t receive enough of it by drinking tap water or using oral hygiene products that contain fluoride, you will be at a higher risk for developing cavities. We offer fluoride treatments to help strengthen your teeth and protect them from decay. They’re a fast, simple, and painless way to make sure your oral health stays on the right track.
