It's common to have grooves and dips in the chewing surfaces of our teeth. While they're natural and completely normal to have, they can pose an increased risk for tooth decay. Bacteria and food debris can get trapped in these areas. Dental sealants are a protective, long-lasting coating that we brush onto the chewing surfaces of your back teeth to minimize your risk for cavities.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that can strengthen your teeth and prevent cavities. It reduces the amount of plaque on your teeth, remineralizes your enamel, and reverses early signs of decay. Similar to our dental sealants, we'll paint the fluoride onto your teeth to help them stay healthy and strong.
Whether you're in a contact sport or have issues grinding your teeth at night, we can design a mouthguard to protect your teeth and jaw. While you can purchase mouthguards from various sporting goods stores, the success rate relies heavily on the fit. That's why our office recommends custom-fitted mouthguards to ensure your smile has the highest level of protection.
Oral Cancer Screenings
The earlier oral cancer is detected, the better. When you come into our office for your biannual cleaning and exam, we'll also perform an oral cancer screening to look for abnormalities on your face, neck, lips, as well as the inside of your nose, throat, and mouth.
