What dental cleaning and gum therapy services are available?

One of our most requested treatments is dental cleanings to eliminate plaque and calculus. Plaque is clear film of bacteria that coats the teeth due when you drink or eat. eat anything. It can usually be removed with regular brushing and flossing. But if it remains on teeth for too long, the plaque will harden into calculus and damage your tooth to the point that it a cavity is caused. Unfortunately, calculus can’t be simply brushed or flossed away. You need a professional cleaning to completely remove this build-on bacteria.

This bacteria can affect more than your teeth and can also attack your gums, causing gum disease. The first stage of the condition is known as gingivitis and its symptoms include swollen, sore, or bleeding gums when brushing or flossing. If you don’t seek immediate gum disease treatment, the problem will advance into a more serious stage called periodontal disease. Our dentists can help you treat and control this condition, as well as recommend a specialist when needed.

What are the best bad breath remedies?

Bad breath is a widespread problem that can cause a great deal of embarrassment and discomfort. The problem is formally known as halitosis and it affects around one-quarter of the entire American population. It can be caused by certain foods, lack of oral hygiene, or even tooth decay. But you don’t have to live with bad breath any longer because our dentists can provide the professional cleanings, at-home oral hygiene tips, and necessary treatments to help you manage the problem.

What are the benefits of an oral cancer screening?

Oral cancer is a frightening condition because there are no symptoms in the early stages and once a cancerous lump appears, it likely has advanced and spread throughout the body. Our practice wants to protect you from this dangerous disease, so we provide an easy and painless oral cancer test during your dental exam. Our dentists are able to detect the earliest signs of the condition and possibly save your life. We strongly urge everyone over the age of 18 have a screening.

What is the best treatment for grinding teeth?

Teeth grinding is a surprisingly common condition. The problem that’s medically known as bruxism is suffered by nearly 40 million people in the U.S. Serious teeth grinding at night or during the day can cause major damage to tooth enamel over time. Every time you visit our practice, our dentist will examine your teeth for signs of the condition and discuss whether you are experiencing the following symptoms:

  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Cracked, chipped, or fractured teeth
  • Wake up with a sore jaw
  • Headaches when you wake up

The problem is usually the result of stress or poor bite alignment. And since it typically happens while you are asleep, you probably don’t even realize you have a problem. But our experienced dentists can detect the signs of grinding and help protect your teeth while you’re asleep by providing a mouth guard for teeth grinding, which is commonly called a night guard.
