Preventative Oral Care Services
Whether it’s a routine exam and cleaning, issues with your gum, or bruxism affecting your teeth, bone, and gum tissue, possibly leading to TMJ dysfunction, our high-end technology allows our team to provide you with the best techniques and resources. We offer several options available depending on your needs.
Below are a few of the preventative treatments we offer:
- Sleep Appliances: Snoring may be an indicator of a more critical health concern known as sleep apnea. Those suffering from sleep apnea experience elevated blood pressure, which is a key risk factor in experiencing heart disease and strokes. Lack of sleep can harm the function of your brain, increasing stress hormones. Even if you have mild sleep apnea, being fitted with an oral appliance can result in little to no snoring.
- Non-Surgical Gum Treatments: Our office uses ARESTIN™ to fight against gum disease. They are invisible microspheres suspended in a powder form that delivers a time-released antibiotic precisely to the site of the infection (the spaces between the gums and teeth). ARESTIN kills the bacteria that cause gum disease. Plus, it’s painless!
