ATHLETIC MOUTH GUARDS
A mouth guard can protect your mouth during any athletic and recreational activities. A good fitting mouth guard can be especially important if you wear braces or have bridgework.
DEEP CLEANING (SCALING AND ROOT PLANING)
Scaling and Root Debridement is a gum therapy used to treat Periodontitis (Gum disease). It involves the removal or eliminating of dental plaque, bacterial toxins and calculus which are a cause of the inflammation in the disease process. The therapy helps to re-establish a healthy environment, that is in remission of periodontal disease.
Dental sealants act as a barrier to prevent cavities. Sealants are usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth.
During a fluoride treatment, your dentist will fill a mouth guard with flavored fluoride. The mouth guard will be worn for up to four minutes in order for it to be effective. Fluoride, a naturally-occurring mineral, helps prevent cavities in children and adults by making the outer surface of your teeth (enamel) more resistant to the acid attacks that cause tooth decay.
LASER ASSISTED PERIODONTAL THERAPY
Laser Assisted Periodontal treatment is a gentle, conservative, non-invasive method of treating gum disease without cutting, suturing or removing tissue that allows for the effective treatment of periodontal disease with no removal of tissue.
If you have noticed wear and tear on your teeth, are experiencing any symptoms that you suspect might be from grinding your teeth, you may need a night guard.
Did you know that eating patterns and food choices play an important role in preventing tooth decay and gum disease, too? We can help you make healthy choices.
