Check-Ups and Cleanings

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings that occur at least every 6 months play a crucial part in maintaining your oral health. It is extremely important to have your teeth and entire mouth professionally checked and cleaned because it would reduce the risk of dental problems such as tartar and tooth decay. We offer a comprehensive oral exam and routine dental cleaning to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. This is particularly helpful for cases that simple brushing or flossing cannot fix, one example is tartar, getting rid of tartar requires professional oral cleaning. Regular check-ups and cleanings also prevent patients from experiencing potentially serious dental problems. We aim to identify any potential issues early on and stop them before they even start to escalate into a much bigger problem that would require you to spend more money on dental treatments.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer is a very serious disease that can be really dangerous and life-threatening if not identified and treated as early as possible. This is the reason why oral cancer screening is extremely helpful and why we include it as part of our oral examinations. During the routine oral exam, to perform oral cancer screening, we examine the areas along your gums, tongue, and other soft tissues of the mouth to check and observe if there are any signs of irregularities.

It is good to keep in mind that oral cancer often does not show or exhibit any apparent signs in its beginning stages that’s why having a regular screening is very essential. Early diagnosis and treatment is the ideal solution for overcoming oral cancer, a life-threatening disease that can have a serious effect on your overall health condition if left untreated.

Night Guards / Sports Guards

Nightguards or sports guards offer a lot of help and assistance for people who suffer from teeth grinding (bruxism) and clenching or for people who actively engage in sports and physical activities. A night guard is a custom-designed oral appliance that provides the wearer with a comfortable cushion between the upper and lower rows of teeth to stop them from grinding their teeth unconsciously at night. It minimizes the harmful effects of teeth grinding.

Meanwhile, a sports guard is meant to protect the wearer’s teeth from a sudden impact caused by a sporting accident. They are typically customized and are designed to fit comfortably on your teeth to offer a more effective barrier and to act as a shield for your teeth and gums.
