After your first visit where a Complete & Comprehensive Examination has been conducted we schedule Recare appointments. These appointments are one of the best ways for our office to provide patients with excellent oral health care and help them to establish the best oral care habits at home.
We make every effort during these visits to thoroughly clean, polish and evaluate your teeth, while at the same time review your oral care techniques and provide any tips or instruc tion to help you maintain the highest possible level of oral health.
Our office is equipped to go the extra mile by providing in-depth patient education, in-office gum care therapy as well as recommending and providing protective measures such as sealants or nightguards.
- Oral Hygiene Instruction
- Dental Cleaning and Fluoride Treatments
- Regular Check-ups
- In-office Periodontal Therapy
- Nightguards for Protection Against Bruxism & TMJ Disorders
- Sealants – placed on molars when they first erupt in children. There is no need for drilling or freezing with this procedure. A thin layer of plastic resin is placed over the chewing surface of the tooth, eliminating the deep pits and grooves that can become decayed.
Sportsguards – We make the mouthguard right at the office for a variety of sports. You even get to pick the color! Protect your teeth while playing your favorite sports.
One area that should be reviewed is Night Guards. These appliances are made to stabilize the TM joint and protect the teeth from nighttime grinding. Do you wake up with tense jaw muscles? Does your jaw click and is it painful to open wide? Do you teeth ache first thing in the morning? Do you find you clench or grind your teeth during times of stress? A TMJ appliance might be in order.
