Dental Checkups & Cleanings
After a thorough oral exam, we will give you a clear explanation of our findings. As you understand more about your current oral health, you’ll be better equipped to take care of your teeth in between visits. If necessary, we will recommend treatment options and help you determine the right one for you. This routine visit also involves a cleaning to remove all plaque and tartar from the surface of teeth and the gums. We recommend that you come in for this appointment once every six months for optimal oral health.
Oral Cancer Screening
The American Cancer Society says that only 29% of oral cancer cases are caught in the early stages. When we perform your oral exam, we’ll also take a couple of minutes to check for oral cancer. We visually inspect your mouth, neck, and throat for any of its telltale signs. Should we identify potentially cancerous areas, we can recommend seeing a physician for a biopsy for earlier diagnosis and treatment.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Anyone at any age can suffer from chronic teeth grinding (also known as bruxism), and this habit can harm your teeth and jaw in the long run. Bruxism can be caused by an uneven bite or stress and is often involuntary, occurring during sleep. Amazing Family Dental can provide you with a custom mouthguard that keeps your upper and lower teeth from touching, preventing the damage that often accompanies this habit and protecting your smile for the long term.
Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens tooth enamel. It can be found in the foods we eat, our public drinking water, and oral healthcare products, of course. That’s why we recommend that all patients use fluoridated toothpaste. Fluoride reduces the risk of future tooth decay by bolstering the healthy structure against plaque and tartar buildup. Following your cleaning, we can apply a concentrated treatment of fluoride to protect your smile in between visits.
