Whether a patient is 3, 93, or somewhere in between, they should attend at least two checkups and cleanings each year. These appointments give our hygienists the chance to remove harmful plaque and tartar from hard to reach areas of the mouth, stopping many cavities before they ever start. Plus, with routine exams, our dentists are able to find and take care of minor problems before they cause anyone noticeable pain or damage, leading to better oral health and lower dental care costs over time.
You’ll find fluoride added to most oral healthcare products and public water sources because this common mineral is proven to fortify the enamel and make it more resistant to decay. That’s why, after every dental cleaning we perform, we coat our patients’ teeth with a highly-concentrated fluoride paste that’s much stronger than the products you’ll find at the store. This will provide lasting cavity protection all the way until a patient’s next cleaning, which means it’s effective for about 6 months!
Do you usually start the day with a sore jaw or headache? If so, then you might suffer from bruxism, or unconscious teeth grinding and jaw clenching during sleep. By having you wear a custom nightguard, we cannot only make your mornings better, but we can also protect your teeth from damaging themselves. This oral appliance can also help remove excess stress from the jaw joint, leading to long-term relief from chronic head, face, and neck pain.
Are you and your loved ones using the right toothpaste, toothbrush, and mouthwash? It can be tough to know given everyone’s unique needs and the endless variety of oral healthcare products available today. Fortunately, our team would be more than happy to give you recommendations at your next checkup and cleaning. After looking at everyone’s teeth, we’ll let you know exactly which products your family should be using to get the most out of your oral hygiene routines.
