Our Family Dentistry Services Include
Dental Exams and Cleanings
Regular, bi-annual dental exams and cleanings are essential for maintaining good dental health throughout your life. During your cleaning and exam, your dental hygienist and dentist evaluate your dental health and examine your mouth for signs of decay or bone loss. Your teeth will be cleaned to remove any tartar or plaque buildup. In addition, your hygienist will floss, polish, and apply fluoride to your teeth. Dental exams and cleanings help our team monitor your dental health and if your at-home dental care is effective.
Brushing and Flossing
Regular brushing and flossing is an essential part of maintaining good dental health. Your at-home brushing and flossing routine helps you keep your teeth, mouth, and gums healthy between dental visits. If you need help choosing the right toothpaste, toothbrush, and dental floss, we can help you find the right products to fit your dental health needs.
Having great dental health for a lifetime starts with having positive experiences at the dentist when we are young. Our office takes special care to make children feel comfortable and safe in our care. We want to make sure your children feel at ease before, during, and after their dental treatments. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children visit the dentist by their first birthday. From there, regular dental checkups and are important to monitor for any signs of dental decay. This also helps your child establish great oral health habits to last a lifetime.
An important part of our dental health services is preventing possible issues from developing in the future. Our practice focuses on helping our patients achieve and maintain great dental health. Your at-home dental hygiene habits and regular dental checkups play an important role in keeping your teeth, mouth, and gums healthy. In addition, eating a balanced diet filled with raw vegetables, cheese, plain yogurt, and fruit can help keep your smile healthy.
Application of dental sealants can also provide your teeth with an extra level of protection against bacteria and decay. This preventive treatment protects the biting surfaces of back teeth with a layer of composite resin. Back teeth (molars) have natural grooves in which food and bacteria can get trapped, multiply, and then cause dental decay. In many cases, regular toothbrushes cannot always fully clean inside these natural grooves. Dental sealants are painted directly onto the tooth and can last for around 5 years before replacement. This treatment can benefit patients of any age.
Oral Cancer Screening
As part of your routine dental health exams, we will conduct an oral cancer screening. If oral cancer is not detected and treated early, it can be life-threatening. An oral cancer screening involves a quick screening of your entire oral cavity, not just your teeth and gums. In addition, we will feel the tissues in your mouth and throat for an abnormalities, and may perform a simple test to collect a sample for any suspicious lesions.
Whether you play sports recreationally or professionally, having a custom-fit mouthguard can ensure your teeth and gums are protected in the event of an injury. Together with you, we will help you determine what kind of mouthguard fits your needs and will provide you with the protection you deserve. We will provide you with the information you need to properly care for your mouthguard, so you can get in the game without compromising your safety.
