Protect Your Smile with Preventive Dentistry

In dentistry, the name of the game is prevention. You’d much rather avoid getting a cavity than have to get it repaired, right?

All it takes is just 2 easy appointments every 6 months to have a smile you never have to worry about. To schedule an appointment, contact us today.

Checkups & Cleanings

With these services, we’ll be able to clean those troublesome areas in your mouth that your brush and floss can’t reach as well as catch any dental problems you might have and stop them in their tracks. Regular checkups and cleanings are the best way to help you avoid a multitude of preventable dental problems, including tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and more. At the end of your preventive appointments, you’ll always have a fresh and clean smile you’ll be eager to show off.

Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal therapy is intended to help patients who are suffering from gum disease, which is a very common bacterial infection of the gums and bone that surround the teeth. Research estimates that around 75-80% of all adults around the world currently have a form of it, and many are completely unaware!  A deep cleaning including scaling and root planing can help us combat early-stage gum disease, and should you suffer from gum recession, Dr. Osseiran can painlessly restore your gum line using the advanced and minimally invasive Chao Pinhole Technique.

Dental Sealants

The rough chewing surfaces of the back teeth tend to be a breeding ground for cavities because they are quite difficult to clean while brushing, especially for small children. To give these teeth a little bit of extra protection, we can apply a dental sealant, which is a clear, thin layer of a plastic-based substance. It will create an invisible barrier on the teeth that plaque and food particles cannot penetrate, effectively safeguarding them from decay and cavities.

Sports Mouthguards

Dental injuries actually account for up to 40% of all sports injuries, so before you hit the mat, field, or court, you should make sure your teeth are protected with a mouthguard. Our practice can provide you with your own custom-made mouthguard designed specifically for your smile. It will fit much more comfortably than anything you can buy at the store, plus it will be thicker and do a better job of defending your smile.

Nightguards for Bruxism

Bruxism is the scientific term for unconscious jaw clenching and teeth grinding, and as many as 1 in 3 people currently suffer from it, mostly in their sleep! Left untreated, it can cause the teeth to wear down prematurely, fracture, and even strain the sensitive jaw joints. To help you deal with this sneaky problem, we can provide you with a custom-made nightguard, which is a small oral appliance you’ll only need to wear to bed. It will place a protective cushion between your teeth in order to prevent them from grinding together.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer is a potentially fatal disease that is easily treated when detected early, which is why the American Cancer Society recommends that everyone should receive at least one oral cancer screening per year. Dr. Osseiran can perform one as part of your regular dental checkup, and he’ll examine your lips, gums, tongue, cheeks, throat, neck, and face for any lesions or growths. Should he find anything that causes concern, he can help you take quick and appropriate action.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a helpful mineral that has been shown to strengthen the teeth against tooth decay and cavities, which is why it’s often added to public water sources. With the increase in non-fluoridated bottled water consumption, many people are now missing out on nature’s gift to their smile. Fortunately, Dr. Osseiran is happy to provide professional fluoride treatments for adults and children alike to keep their teeth healthy between appointments.

Emergency Dentistry
