Protecting Your Smile
Some of the most critical aspects of your dental care are your routine examinations and cleanings. This allows us to keep track of problem areas and protect them from further damage. In addition to professional cleanings, we offer preventive measures for added protection.
It’s important to take care of your smile — you only have one!
Preventive Treatments Offered
Athletic mouthguards are critical when partaking in sports and other physical activities. They decrease the chances of breaking or knocking out a tooth during activities.
Nightguards are an important preventive measure if you grind your teeth at night. Continuous grinding of teeth can lead to tooth damage and gum recession.
Fluoride treatments protect your teeth by supporting the enamel and fighting against cavities. This treatment comes in several forms and can be applied after your cleaning.
A sealant is a protective coating that is brushed over the chewing surface of your teeth to prevent debris from getting trapped in the grooves.
Halitosis is another word for chronic bad breath. During your cleaning, our team will assess the cause and create a plan to treat your case.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer screenings are performed at every exam. These are designed to detect oral cancer or precancerous signs.
Sleep Apnea Therapy
Sleep apnea therapy consists of issuing you a custom appliance that is designed to keep your airways open while you sleep.
TMD varies in severity and your treatment will be tailored accordingly. During your examination, we will create a treatment plan customized to correct your case.
Cost of Preventive Care
The cost of each preventive treatment ranges. Pricing will be determined on a case-by-case basis. While adding preventive services to your care may seem costly, it is far cheaper than paying for expensive restorative treatments down the road. Putting in the additional effort to care for your teeth before problems arise is always a better alternative to fixing a dental problem.request an appointment
