Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
Regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing are necessary to stave off dental decay, gum disease, and cavities. But twice a year, Dr. Saran and our team can give your teeth and gums a more thorough cleaning while also checking for signs of common oral health problems. In combination with your oral hygiene routine, these six-month checkups and cleanings will keep your smile in great shape year-round.
Oral Cancer Screening
During your regular checkup, your dentist will perform an oral cancer screening. You may not even realize this quick and painless procedure is being performed. They will examine the mouth, head, neck, and throat for any abnormalities, lesions, or discoloration that may point to oral cancer. If any areas raise concern, they will refer you to a specialist for further testing and work closely with your medical professional should a formal diagnosis occur.
Night Guards for Bruxism
Stress can manifest in many different ways; however, one of the most common is through teeth grinding and clenching. Also known as bruxism, this unhealthy habit causes worn tooth enamel and chronic jaw pain over time. With the help of a customized night guard, a comfortable cushion keeps the teeth from touching while you sleep, allowing you to protect your pearly whites while also reducing pain and damage to your oral and facial structures.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that is proven to protect cavity-prone teeth. Often found in city tap water and toothpaste, for both children and adults, fluoride is a great way to combat tooth decay and strengthen existing enamel. Applied during a regular checkup and cleaning appointment, it goes on quickly and is a completely painless process that is finished in just minutes.
