Dental Checkups & Cleanings
Even patients who brush every day could still have plaque and tartar accumulate in the spots they’ve missed without realizing it. Our hygienists can find and clean these areas thoroughly before they start to suffer from gum disease or decay. Your biannual appointments are also a chance for us to look for early-stage dental problems that you might not have noticed yet; that way, we can get you started on a treatment plan to prevent the worst of the damage.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Take a look at your teeth; do they seem unusually worn down? That could be due to bruxism, a common condition where you clench or grind your teeth at night. If you ignore the problem, you could be at risk for serious dental damage. Luckily, we can help you keep your smile safe while you slumber with a nightguard. Your appliance will be custom-made so that it fits comfortably in your mouth and acts as a barrier between your upper and lower arches.
Athletic Mouthguards/ Sportsguards
About 5 million Americans lose teeth while playing sports every year. Even if you’re participating in an activity with a low risk of impact, it usually pays to take preventive steps to keep your smile safe by wearing a mouthguard. You can buy such appliances over the counter, but since they won’t be pre-fitted for your mouth, they may not be as effective; Dr. Singh can provide you with a specially made mouthguard for maximum comfort and protection.
Oral Cancer Screenings
While those who smoke have a particularly high risk of suffering from oral cancer, virtually anyone can suffer from this deadly disease. To have the best chance of survival, you’ll need to have it diagnosed and treated as early as possible. Every preventive checkup at Cary Dental Rejuvenation will include an oral cancer screening in which we check for irregular lumps, suspicious sores, and/or discolored tissues. If we find anything of note, we can point you in the right direction for further tests.
You’ve probably heard that fluoride – a naturally occurring mineral found in most drinking water – can strengthen your teeth and help protect them against cavities. Fluoride intake is especially critical for children under the age of 16 who have yet to receive all their permanent teeth. At Cary Dental Rejuvenation, we strongly believe in the benefits that fluoride can provide adults and children alike. If you or your little ones aren’t receiving enough fluoride, we can apply it topically to your teeth in order to lower the risk of decay.
From the eruption of their baby teeth to the possible need for orthodontic care, it’s essential for your little ones to receive high quality dental care at every stage of life. We’ll do everything we can to make treatment as comfortable and enjoyable for your children as possible; after all, a good experience with the dentist at an early age means they’re more likely to seek dental care on their own once they’ve reached adulthood.
The plaque that leads to cavities tends to build up on the molars, which are located at the back of the mouth where it’s harder to brush. Young children tend to have a particularly hard time cleaning this area. Luckily, we can give them a little extra help by applying dental sealants to vulnerable teeth. Sealants are thin, plastic coatings that can prevent bacteria and food particles from getting caught in the various grooves that tend to be on the surface of the molars and pre-molars.
