Ongoing maintenance of your car prolongs its performance, so why not do the same and keep your smile in tip-top shape with regular checkups? After all, this approach can help you avoid unwanted dental problems in the future. Our dentists can apply sealants to prevent cavities, screen for oral cancer symptoms, professionally clean teeth every 6 months, and more.
Not all plaque and tartar can be removed at home. That’s where our dental hygienists come in. We’ll use various dental tools to gently clean around and in between your teeth to leave no stone unturned, so to speak.
Cleanings are also a great opportunity for our dentists to address any concerns you may have or monitor arising oral issues.
Oral cancer is unfortunately more widespread than you might think, affecting approximately 54,000 people each year. Because of this, screenings are crucial when it comes to catching symptoms early on and treating them. Checking for oral cancer in our office is painless and involves both a visual and physical examination of the mouth.
No one likes cavities. Fortunately, prevention is made even easier with the application of dental sealants. These thin, colorless coatings are painlessly brushed onto the chewing surface of your back molars by our dentists to “seal out” decay from entering in through fine grooves on the top of the tooth.
Advanced gum disease, or periodontitis, may not be reversible but that doesn’t mean it isn’t treatable. Our dentists can assess your condition and help improve your oral health by recommending the scaling and root planing procedure. This form of treatment will remove plaque from above and below the gum line to prevent bacteria from reattaching to the tooth roots.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is located on either side of your jaw. Think of it like a hinge that slides to allow for easy speaking and eating. Sometimes, however, there is dysfunction in the way that these joints and surrounding muscles work which results in noticeable pain. Our dentists can help ease that discomfort using a custom oral appliance.
Taking care of your teeth can seem like a chore but it’s one that’s worth the time and effort. Our dentists in Ada, MI, can help compliment your at-home oral hygiene routine with professional care as much as is needed.
