Routine Cleanings & Exams
Routine cleanings and exams performed by our hygienist are as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. During a routine cleaning and exam, our team will thoroughly examine the teeth and gums to determine if tooth decay or other dental issues are present. We’ll also perform a comprehensive cleaning and answer any questions you may have regarding your oral health. By attending routine cleanings and exams twice a year, our team can help you protect your smile!
Easy and quick to apply, dental sealants are a tooth-colored coating painted onto the surface of your teeth. Once painted and sealed, dental sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque. Both children and adults can benefit from dental sealants!
Fluoride is a natural mineral often added to drinking water and found in foods we eat. Fluoride is proven to fight cavity-causing bacteria, reducing the risk of cavities. With fluoride treatments, you can strengthen your teeth and offer them protection between routine cleanings and exams!
Oral Cancer Screenings
Early diagnosis is crucial when treating oral cancer. During an oral cancer screening, our team will check your teeth, gums, and other areas of the mouth to look for signs of abnormal cell growth or irregularities that need to be addressed.
Athletic mouthguards protect teeth, jaws, and soft tissues during professional or recreational sports. Designed to absorb impact and reduce the risk of dental injuries, custom athletic mouthguards offer comfort and protection to ensure oral health remains optimal.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Stress, anxiety, and other lifestyle or oral factors can increase your risk of developing bruxism. Bruxism is categorized by regularly and consistently grinding or clenching your teeth, especially while you sleep. If you suffer from bruxism, one of our custom nightguards for bruxism can provide a cushion for your smile, reducing the risk of damage to your teeth.
