Dental Checkups & Cleanings
It’s hard to feel at your best when your oral health is below par. Dr. Weiss and Dr. Fulreader work diligently to keep your teeth and gums up-to-speed with routine exams. During a normal visit, a member of our team will take digital images of your mouth, which let us see abnormal growth or decay that takes place below your gums. Dr. Weiss and Dr. Fulreader will also check for any damage in your enamel every time you visit. If we discover anything troublesome, we’ll offer proactive approaches to minimize discomfort and costs.
Oral Cancer Screening
While cancer might be the last thing in your mind during a dental exam, Dr. Weiss and Dr. Fulreader are keeping an eye out for oral cancer. This condition is actually the sixth most common form of cancer in the world, and the best time to treat it is during the early stages of development. During every routine exam, we stay on the lookout for mouth sores, lumps and bumps, and discolorations in oral tissue for this very reason.
Nightguards for Bruxism
If we notice that your teeth appear worn down, or there’s an issue with your bite function, we may recommend a Night Guard. Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is common, but since it normally occurs when you’re sleeping, you may never be aware of a problem! Nightguards shield your teeth from your unconscious habit, and we’ll be able to customize this appliance in our general dentistry office. We can also limit muscle spasms and overactivity associated with grinding by using a customized orthotic appliance.
At-Home Hygiene Products
At-home oral care is equally as important as staying up-to-date on your professional exams and cleanings. 363 days out of the year, it’s up to you to practice oral hygiene in the comfort of your own bathroom. With that said, we’re happy to recommend specific oral products that we believe protect oral health the best. Whether it’s a toothbrush, brand of toothpaste, or other product, we’re here to help you make an informed purchase decision!
