Fluoride treatments aren’t just for kids, they’re for anyone wanting to strengthen their teeth against decay and for those who want a little extra help re-mineralizing their teeth to protect them against cavities.
Dental sealants are a protective measure against cavities. Bacteria can easily get into pits and fissures on teeth. Even with brushing, it can be hard to remove this bacteria that resides in the grooves of your teeth. By sealing the grooves in the teeth with a sealant, you create a barrier between the surface of the tooth and bacteria.
Mouthguards and Nightguards
Mouthguards protect your teeth during sports and are one of the best things you can wear to prevent dental injuries, even when you’re wearing a helmet! Nightguards protect your teeth from the grinding and clenching you may unconsciously do during sleep. Over time, this can wear down your teeth and enamel, leading to serious dental issues.
Oral Cancer Screenings
When it comes to treating oral cancer, the most important thing one can do is diagnosis it early. Oral cancer screenings are an examination of your mouth and tongue to look for signs of cancer or any precancerous conditions. With early detection, chances of survival are much higher.
