Regular Dental Checkups
While we provide personalized dentistry plans for every patient, regular dental checkups are the foundation of effective dental care for everyone. These biannual appointments give us the opportunity to screen for common warning signs of oral health concerns like tooth decay, gum disease, TMJ dysfunction, teeth grinding and clenching, and oral cancer. We will also examine any dental restorations for signs of damage or wear. Our goal is to partner with you to keep your smile whole, healthy, and beautiful for life.
Professional Teeth Cleanings
In addition to regular dental exams, professional cleanings are important to keep your smile healthy. While daily brushing and flossing removes the majority of plaque buildup on the teeth, even the most thorough at-home hygiene routine isn’t perfect. In fact, teeth have pits and grooves so small that even one toothbrush bristle can’t access them. Plaque producing bacteria can accumulate in these parts of the teeth, hardening into tartar and damaging oral health. That’s where professional teeth cleanings come in. Your skilled hygienist will carefully remove plaque and tartar from even the hardest to access parts of the smile, ensuring your ideal oral health and function.
Fluoride is a mineral that helps to strengthen tooth enamel. It’s unique in that it can attract other minerals that also fortify tooth enamel. For patients developing primary or adult teeth, ingested fluoride in tap water, found certain foods, and health supplements, is essential to ensure the development of healthy smiles. Once teeth have erupted from the gum line, topical fluoride is necessary to keep your smile strong and healthy.
Gum Disease Therapy
Gum disease affects almost 80 percent of adults, and many people don't even realize they have a problem. Without treatment, gum disease can lead to tooth loss and overall health problems, like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes complications. As a general dentist, Dr. Dan will carefully examine your gums at every appointment. If you need gum disease therapy, we will develop a treatment plan to stop the disease, reverse damage, and restore your oral health.
TMJ Dysfunction Therapy
The temporomandibular joints (TMJ) connect the jaw to the skull bone and allow for comfortable, painless function. When these small joints are damaged or strained, the result can be painful or impeded jaw function that makes the simplest smile uncomfortable. We offer a variety of treatments to help patients struggling with TMJ dysfunction to reclaim full range of motion without any pain.
