Checkups and Cleanings
Maintaining the health of your teeth and gums, and catching any problems early, are the reasons why regular dental checkups and cleanings are so important.
Oral Cancer Screening
At Area Dental Clinic, we believe in the importance of providing our patients an oral cancer screening at every cleaning appointment.
Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection of the gums, which are the tissues that hold your teeth in place. It is a very common dental health issue that we, at Area Dental, are well trained to treat.
Sealants are made of a resin material which, when applied, acts as a shield for your teeth. The application process is simple and quick, “painting” it onto the grooves and pits of each tooth. Once the sealant sets, it will provide protection against bacteria that will last for years.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that can help restore your smile by strengthening teeth and fighting off cavity-causing bacteria which harm teeth and gums. A treatment includes your dental professional applying a fluoride-rich substance onto your teeth, which will help protect teeth for up to six months.
The Area Dental Clinic team is proud to help protect the mouths and smiles of our local athletes by making custom athletic mouthguards for many area sports teams. For our patients that suffer from clenching or bruxing (grinding) their teeth, we can quickly make custom-fit nightguards. This appliance can help prevent tooth wear, reduce pain in the jaw joint, and improve tooth sensitivity. We have the technology to make these appliances in our office which means we can fit you with a very effective nightguard in a short period of time.
