Exams & Cleanings
No matter how proficient you are at keeping your teeth and gums clean and healthy, scheduling routine exams and cleanings at least twice per year is very important for maintaining good oral health. Having regular teeth cleanings keeps plaque and tartar from building up on the surface of the teeth and in between each tooth. Exams allow our team to check for tooth decay, gum disease, and other potential problems.
Composite fillings are an excellent way to restore a tooth that has been damaged by tooth decay. Aside from the dental professionals that inspect your teeth closely, no one should even be able to tell that you’ve had a filling. Composite filling materials can also be used for chipped, broken, or worn down teeth. They also don’t require as much of the natural tooth to be removed for the filling to be added.
In the event that you have a tooth that needs to be extracted, our team has the tools and sedation options necessary to make it as swift and painless as possible. If your mouth is too crowded or a tooth has become infected to the point where a root canal can’t restore it, we will likely recommend a dental extraction. Once completed, there are several ways to restore your smile back to what it once was, through services like dental implants or dentures.
TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, which is the joint that usually causes problems when a patient has TMJ disorder. If you are suffering from pain or tenderness in the jaw, pain in or around the ear, difficulty chewing, painful chewing, or a jaw that tends to click or lock frequently, you may be suffering from TMJ. Our practice offers custom mouthguards to keep TMJ from causing further damage and to keep its symptoms at bay.Learn More
Oral Cancer Screenings
At every routine appointment, our team of qualified dentists are not only checking for abnormalities in the teeth and gums, but all around the mouth for signs of oral cancer. If you regularly use tobacco or alcohol or have a family history of oral cancer, you can always let your dentist know so they can keep that in mind during your biannual oral exams.
