Dental Checkups & Consultations

During a regular checkup, we will examine your teeth and gums to see if there are any signs of decay, disease, or damage that need to be treated before they turn into larger oral health issues. We may also take X-rays to check for problems that aren’t immediately visible. If you have a specific oral health concern, you can schedule a consultation with us so that we can evaluate the situation and determine what next steps, if any, are required.

Dental Cleanings

Approximately every four to six months, our experienced hygienists will remove the plaque and tartar that has built up on your teeth. Plaque can easily be removed by brushing and flossing, but it can still accumulate in places that you can’t reach with your toothbrush or have simply overlooked during your oral hygiene routine. Tartar (hardened plaque) can only be safely removed by a professional. Our hygienists will always take plenty of time to make sure that you get the individualized care that you require to maintain a brilliant smile.

Custom Nightguards for Teeth Grinding

Clear nightguard for teeth grinding

Nighttime teeth grinding is a problem that many people don’t realize they suffer from until they notice that their teeth have become flattened and worn down. While we can’t necessarily stop your jaw from moving involuntarily at night, we can stop your teeth from grinding against each other by keeping them separated with a nightguard. Our nightguards are different from the ones you might find at the store in that they are expertly custom fitted for each patient.

Oral Cancer Screening

You never want to be told that you have oral cancer, but it’s always better to get the news before the disease has had the opportunity to spread. The chances of survival are much higher for patients that have their cancer diagnosed early. Each oral exam includes a brief oral cancer screening that consists of checking for discolored tissue, suspicious lumps or bumps, and other symptoms that might call for further testing by a physician.
