Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

At our dental office, you can expect a full breakdown of our findings after your exam. The better you understand the details of your current oral health, the more effectively you can take care of yourself in between visits. After the exam, we will prescribe treatment if necessary and explain our reasoning behind the recommendation. Part of your routine visit also includes a cleaning, time permitting, which we recommend once every six months. These cleanings work to remove all plaque and tartar from the surface of teeth and the gums.

Oral Cancer Screening

Whether it’s your first visit to our dental office or you’re a seasoned patient, oral cancer screenings are crucial to catching the condition as early as possible. According to the American Cancer Society, only 29% of oral cancer cases are caught in the early stages. We visually screen your mouth and throat for any signs as well as feel specific areas of the head and neck where it can develop. If for any reason we believe oral cancer is present, we can help you take the next steps towards a biopsy.

Nightguards for Bruxism

Chronic teeth grinding affects people of all different ages, which means it never hurts to have your teeth and jaw examined for potential damage. Teeth grinding and clenching (also known as bruxism) is typically caused by an uneven bite, but it can also occur due to stress. If you experience jaw or teeth pain upon waking, as teeth grinding typically occurs while sleeping, our dental office can create a custom-made nightguard that fits comfortably and offers long-term protection.
