Dental Checkups & Cleanings
Every six months, our team will work to safeguard your smile with the help of dental checkups and teeth cleanings. Using dental X-rays, intraoral cameras, and our Pearl cavity detection system, we can identify problem areas early on and deliver treatment that targets bad bacteria and keeps your smile looking and feeling better in between appointments. We’ll also perform oral cancer screenings to ensure no abnormalities exist that require further testing.
Dentistry for Children
The growth and movement of a child’s teeth, gums, and bite must be closely monitored as they transition to each new stage of life. Tooth eruption, cavities, bite misalignment, and facial development are all components that we will treat and work to improve as they grow older. Using preventive methods such as fluoride and dental sealants, you can trust that we will give your children’s smiles the attention they deserve.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that works to protect teeth from the dangers of dental decay. Found in toothpaste, city water, and various fruits and vegetables, many patients do not require additional treatment. However, if you or a loved one are prone to developing cavities, an application of fluoride during regular checkups can be beneficial in safeguarding enamel and strengthening it over time. The process takes only seconds and can be performed on the same day as a six-month exam.
Cleaning teeth can often be difficult for children and some adults. Teeth located toward the back of the mouth (the molars) contain pits and crevices that make it easy for bacteria to become trapped. To avoid possible decay over time, we can place plastic dental sealants over the chewing surfaces. Painless and easy to apply, sealants act as protective barriers that keep bacteria from penetrating the enamel, and they can last up to 10 years.
