Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

The American Dental Association, along with our team, recommends visiting your dentist every six months for regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings. These appointments are preventive in nature with the goal of spotting the small signs of oral health issues before they have a chance to progress and require more extensive treatment. We’ll capture X-rays and conduct a thorough evaluation of your teeth and gums as well as polish, floss, and thoroughly clear all plaque and tartar from the surface of your smile.

Oral Cancer Screening

At each dental checkup, you’ll receive an oral cancer screening, which is always free of charge. We want you to live the healthiest and happiest life possible, which is why we aim to spot the earliest signs of this disease to ensure the highest possible recovery rate. Dr. Daaboul or one of our dental hygienists will examine your tongue, lips, oral tissues, neck, and throat in search of signs, like red or white rough patches or oral wounds that haven’t healed in a timely manner. If we spot anything concerning, we’ll refer you to an appropriate specialist for additional testing and a biopsy.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is a mineral that’s essential to your oral health and wellness. It has enamel-strengthening abilities, allowing it to protect your teeth from the threat of decay—especially if you’re at a higher risk of developing cavities. At the end of your teeth cleaning, our team will offer you a fluoride treatment to strengthen your pearly whites. It only takes a moment to apply and can keep your oral health on the right track.

Athletic Mouthguards / Sportsguards

If you or your child participates in local athletics teams or hobbies that could put you at risk of chipping, knocking-out, or otherwise damaging a tooth, you may consider investing in one of our custom-fitted sportsguards. They’re made from a durable, cushioning acrylic that’s personalized to fit comfortably in your mouth while offering maximum protection. Not only can this help you or your child play with confidence on the field or court, but it can also keep you from needing to spend hundreds on emergency dental treatments.

Nightguards for Bruxism

Bruxism, more commonly known as the grinding and clenching of your teeth, is a common condition that impacts millions of people across the country. It can develop due to a variety of underlying issues, like TMJ disorder or bite misalignment, or due to stress. In any case, without proper intervention, bruxism can lead to worn-down tooth enamel or chipped or cracked teeth, ultimately requiring more extensive procedures to restore the damage.
