Dedicated Dental Checkups

When receiving a dental checkup from our esteemed dental experts, you can expect that we will take our time to thoroughly evaluate your teeth, gums, jaw, and any existing restorations for damage or decay. By carefully checking your oral health with the use of advanced technologies and techniques, we can reduce the chances of cavities, gum disease, a misaligned bite, and even oral cancer.

In-Depth Dental Cleanings

Once a full examination is complete, one of our qualified dental hygienists will begin clearing away accumulated plaque and tartar on your teeth and gums. This process allows us to give your teeth the polishing and cleaning they need to avoid worn-down tooth enamel, dental caries, and stains. When performed every six months (as recommended), we can ensure that your smile remains healthy and fully intact year-round.

Nightguards for Bruxism (Teeth Grinding)

If you’re regularly waking up with morning headaches, a sore jaw, or stiff head and neck, you may need to speak to a member of our team about the possibility of bruxism. Also known as teeth grinding/clenching, this harmful habit can cause damage to your teeth and jawbone, creating more serious problems the longer you go without treatment. With a custom nightguard, though, we can help establish a barrier between your upper and lower arches of teeth so that you slow the damage caused to your chewing surfaces.

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease affects millions of people throughout the United States each year. Unfortunately, the symptoms are often disregarded or mistaken for something less minor. However, when tenderness, redness, soreness, and bleeding of the gums are evident, our team can employ gum disease treatment. Using specialized instruments and innovative techniques, we can target bad pockets of bacteria to produce healthier gum tissues.
