Routine Cleanings and Exams
Regular cleanings and exams are the foundation of maintaining optimal oral health. Our skilled team conducts thorough cleanings to remove plaque and tartar, while comprehensive exams allow us to detect any issues early, ensuring a healthy, radiant smile for years to come.
Dental sealants provide an extra layer of protection against cavities. These thin, protective coatings are applied to the chewing surfaces of molars, sealing out bacteria and preventing decay in hard-to-reach areas. It’s a simple, painless procedure that can safeguard your teeth for a long time.
Fluoride treatments strengthen tooth enamel, making it more resistant to decay. This quick and painless procedure involves applying a concentrated fluoride solution to the teeth. It’s especially beneficial for children but can be valuable for patients of all ages.
Periodontal care focuses on maintaining healthy gums and preventing or treating gum disease. Our dedicated team provides comprehensive treatments, including deep cleanings and personalized oral hygiene plans, to promote gum health and help preserve your smile.
Persistent bad breath, or halitosis, can be distressing. Our team conducts thorough examinations to identify the underlying cause and develop a tailored treatment plan. We address oral health issues and provide personalized recommendations to restore fresh breath and confidence.
Protecting your smile while playing sports is crucial. Our custom-fit athletic mouthguards offer superior protection, minimizing the risk of dental injuries during physical activities. They’re comfortable, durable, and designed to let you focus on your game.
Headache Prevention (NTI)
For those suffering from chronic headaches or migraines, an NTI appliance may offer relief. This specially designed device fits over the front teeth and helps prevent teeth clenching (bruxism) as well as jaw tension, addressing a common source of headache pain.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can lead to serious dental issues, including irreversible tooth and gum damage. Our custom nightguards provide a protective barrier, cushioning your teeth and preventing them from coming in contact with each other.
Sleep Apnea Appliances
Sleep apnea can disrupt restful sleep and impact a patient’s overall health. Our custom-fitted oral appliances reposition the jaw, helping to keep airways open, improve breathing, and allow the patient to get a more restful night’s sleep.
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder can cause jaw pain and discomfort. Our office provides custom nightguards for TMJ, which can prevent excess pressure from being placed on the temporomandibular joint night after night. Relieving this pressure also relieves symptoms like headaches, face and ear pain, and jaw stiffness.
