Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

It is common for individuals to undergo two dental exams and teeth cleanings each year (every six months). These visits make it possible for a dentist to thoroughly examine your teeth and gums while also reviewing any existing restorations, checking for damage, and identifying signs of early infection. We’ll also clean and remove any existing plaque and tartar from your teeth to reduce your risk of gum disease while also offering helpful tips that can be used at home.

Oral Cancer Screening

People who smoke or use tobacco products are not the only ones who can develop oral cancer. In fact, a majority of those who exhibit symptoms of oral cancer do not fall into the “at-risk” category. The reality is that oral cancer knows no age, so anyone is susceptible. However, Dr. Bemani can easily identify early signs of the disease by performing regular oral cancer screenings. By checking for oral lesions, discolored patches of soft tissue, or even abnormalities throughout the mouth and throat, we can determine if you need to see a specialist.

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease affects millions of Americans, most of whom never know they have symptoms until it’s further along. When bacteria attack the gum tissue, it can cause pockets to form, tenderness, bleeding, and inflammation. With gum disease treatment, though, we can reduce gum pockets, lower your risk of tooth loss and bone deterioration, and we can minimize the potential for more serious overall health problems that are linked to gum disease, like diabetes and heart disease.

Nightguards for Bruxism

If you grind your teeth together at night while sleeping, you likely wake with a morning headache. You’ll also notice that your jaw feels sore, and your teeth begin to look worn down. This is due to teeth clenching and grinding, also known as bruxism. We can craft a customized nightguard to protect your pearly whites from further damage.

Fluoride Treatment

A natural mineral found in toothpaste, fruits, vegetables, and tap water, fluoride is deemed a worthwhile and commonly used product in dentist offices throughout the country. Capable of providing additional protection to tooth enamel, it also combats tooth decay, reducing your risk of cavities along the way. Fluoride is applied quickly during a regular dental checkup and is completely painless. With proper care, your fluoride treatment can help keep teeth protected in between dental appointments.

Dental Sealants

Molars and premolars consist of deep pits and grooves. When eating, food particles and bacteria can easily seep into these areas and become havens for harmful acids to begin eating away at your tooth enamel. This is especially true for children, as it can be difficult to reach these areas when cleaning. With dental sealants, though, Dr. Bemani and our team can paint these coatings over the chewing surfaces to create a barrier against food particles and other harmful bacteria. If properly cared for, they can last a decade or more, but they’ll be checked at each six-month dental checkup.
