Dental Checkups & Cleanings
Without a doubt, other than daily oral care at home, two checkups and cleanings a year play a critical part in maintaining a strong, healthy smile. During these appointments, we will closely examine your individual teeth and gum tissue, looking for any signs of trouble. If we spot something of concern, we can quickly resolve the problem before it develops further and causes you pain. Our hygienists will also remove calcified plaque, which houses bacteria, from the areas of your teeth that are difficult to reach with your toothbrush and floss at home.
Oral Cancer Screening
In addition to a comprehensive oral exam, we spend a few extra minutes to inspect your mouth for abnormal cells that indicate oral cancer, including tissue discoloration and suspicious lumps or bumps. Why? As the sixth most common type, oral cancer can be fatal if it’s caught during later stages of development. Our trained team has the skills to identify potentially cancerous cells as soon as possible, helping patients get treatment and overcome this serious disease.
Have you ever wondered why nearly every tube of toothpaste contains fluoride? Well, your enamel may be the hardest material in your body, but it could use some extra support against the bacteria and acids in your mouth. That’s exactly what fluoride does—it strengthens teeth’s outer protective shell. After your dental cleaning, we can give you a concentrated fluoride treatment that helps prevent cavities until your next visit with us.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Do you experience jaw pain or headaches in the morning? You may have a condition called bruxism, which is clenching or grinding your teeth while you sleep. Not only can bruxism leave you with unpleasant symptoms, it can wear down your teeth’s structure, making it easier for your teeth to crack or break later on. Luckily, our team can provide you with a mouthguard that you wear during the night. This custom nightguard keeps your teeth from touching and can ease the strain on your jaw muscles.
At-Home Hygiene Products
When you’re out shopping, the sheer number of available options for oral products can easily feel overwhelming. At Solomon Dental Group, we take the time to understand your unique needs. As a result, we can recommend specific brands and products that will provide the best possible at-home care for your smile. During your checkup, make sure you ask our team members about what brands we prefer to help with your oral health.
