A dental examination is an all-inclusive oral examination for evaluating the health of the mouth, jaw, teeth, and gums. An oral examination provides our team with a brief idea of your oral health and hygiene. During the procedure, every tooth is checked for cavities, their previous treatment is examined, and conditions are evaluated.

Dentistry for Kids
Professional dental care is a crucial part of your child's oral health. Be sure to schedule your child's first appointment by the time their first teeth erupt, or before their first birthday. Scheduling regular appointments allows us to monitor the development of their oral health. Developmental problems are easier to treat in the beginning stages.
As your child grows older, we can establish a strong foundation for their oral health, one that will ensure a lifetime of healthy, beautiful teeth.

Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral found in many of our foods and beverages. It is also a useful tool in fighting tooth decay. Every day, our teeth lose and gain minerals through the processes of demineralization and remineralization. If the process of demineralization exceeds that of remineralization tooth decay will occur.
Professional fluoride treatment allows us to supplement the process of remineralization and prevent potential decay. It can even reverse minor instances of decay. Fluoride treatment is particularly beneficial for patients at a greater risk of tooth decay, such as children, teens, and seniors.
Discover how fluoride treatment can help prevent decay for you and your family.
A dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating that prevents cavities and tooth decay. Sealants are usually applied to the occlusal (bite) surface of the molars and premolars. These teeth possess deep grooves and fissures that are much harder to clean, especially for children and teenagers. Sometimes the grooves are so thin that the bristles of a toothbrush are rendered essentially ineffective. A sealant will provide a more even brushing surface and seal off the enamel from harmful bacteria. Preventing tooth decay will ensure your child’s smile remains beautiful for years to come!

Oral Cancer Screening
An oral cancer screening is a simple yet possibly life-saving test that can help detect any early signs of oral cancer. During the oral cancer screening, we will look for abnormal cells and tissues in your mouth, which could indicate a possible cancer threat.

Playing an essential role to ensure good oral health, a dental cleaning is the elimination of plaque from the teeth to help avoid cavities and other dental-related diseases. Generally, people can keep their teeth clean by practicing good dental hygiene, but sometimes, some deposits are hardened around the teeth. This hardened buildup can only be eliminated through dental cleanings.

Your periodontal (gum) tissues are just as important as your teeth. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States. Periodontal disease is the result of an infection in the gum tissues, connective ligaments, and eventually the alveolar bone.
The disease is characterized by gums that are swollen, red, and tend to bleed during brushing and flossing. Luckily, periodontal disease is easy to prevent and treat if it is caught early enough. If we notice signs of advanced periodontal disease, we may recommend a scaling and root planing procedure. The goal is to return your gums to a pink, healthy state.

If you have found yourself waking up with sore jaw, dull headaches, facial pain, or mild to severe toothaches, then you may be suffering from a condition called bruxism. It is a fairly common condition, which is characterized by teeth grinding and clenching. Persistent cases of bruxism could lead to significant loss of enamel, often related with tooth pain and sensitivity, or even broken teeth.
