Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
One of the most common questions that patients have for us is “how often do I need a checkup?” For a basic medical exam, the answer to that question is once a year, but when it comes to dentistry, it’s actually a good idea for patients to have an exam and cleaning every six months.
Why so often? So that we can help you stay ahead of any developing issues! When left untreated, small, seemingly harmless problems can develop into more serious issues that require more serious care. Our Carrollton dental office wants to help you nip small problems in the bud as quickly and efficiently as possible. Seeing us twice a year will help us do that.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Waking up early is tough for many people, but especially those who have a sore jaw or headache to greet them every morning. These could be signs that someone is grinding their teeth in their sleep, which is officially known as bruxism. This can wear down and severely damage the teeth over time, but we can offer a solution that fits in the palm of your hand. With a specially made oral appliance called a nightguard, we can help a patient rest easy as we keep their teeth protected from any harmful contact.
Oral Cancer Screenings
While many cases of oral cancer have been linked with behaviors like tobacco use and excessive alcohol consumption, more than a quarter occur in patients with none of the usual risk factors. That’s why we believe in screening every patient for oral cancer. In too many cases, a diagnosis isn’t made until a full recovery is difficult or impossible. We want to reverse this trend by taking a more proactive stand against oral cancer
