Dental Hygiene

General Dentistry in [GEOID] | Dental Exams, Gingivitis Treatment, Sedation Dentistry & More

Why Are Dental Hygiene Services Important?

Dental hygiene services remove built up plaque that brushing and flossing may have left behind. Plaque may lead to cavities and gingivitis if it is not removed regularly.

Dental Services for Children

Are Children’s Dental Services the Same as Adult Dental Services?

Both adults and children need many of the same dental services. Our experienced dental staff make a special effort to put children at ease. If you need a dentist that can treat the whole family, contact our office to schedule your appointment.

Dental Exams

What Happens at the Typical Dental Exam?

Assuming you don’t’ have any pressing dental issues, you will have a professional cleaning and an examination by our dentist, who may or may not order X-rays. The exam usually takes less than an hour.

What Does a Typical Exam Cost?

The cost varies, as sometimes our dentist will find a minor issue that he or she can take care of during the exam. Your dental insurance coverage also determines your price for a dental exam.

Gingivitis/Gum Disease Treatment

Why Should I Get Gingivitis Treatment?

If you believe that you have gingivitis, call our office and schedule an appointment for treatment. Ignoring gingivitis may lead to periodontitis, which is an advanced form of gum disease that causes tooth loss.

What Will I Pay for Gingivitis Treatment?

Your gingivitis treatment cost will depend on whether our dentist recommends a dental teeth cleaning or a deep cleaning.

Mouth Guards - Sports

Why Is a Custom Mouth Guard Superior?

A custom-made sports mouth guard for your child is better than a generic or boil-and-bite sports mouth guard. Custom-made mouth guards fit properly, last a long time, and are comfortable. Call our office to learn more about our sports mouth guards that offer superior protection.

What Is the Price for a Custom Sports Mouth Guard?

The price will vary, as each mouth guard is different. Considering the cost of replacing a lost tooth, a sports mouth guard is a good investment.

Night Guards

Do Night Guards Work?

Custom-made night guards from a dentist work very well, since nobody knows teeth better than a dentist. If you grind your teeth while you sleep, a nighttime mouth guard will prevent you from wearing the enamel off of your teeth.

What Do Custom Dental Night Guards Cost?

Your cost for a custom night guard from a dentist depends on the material used and the night guard’s specifications.

How Do Night Guards Protect Teeth?

Custom night guards protect teeth by keeping the upper and lower arch from touching. If teeth cannot grind against each other, much of the possible damage, such as cracked fillings, is mitigated.

Nitrous Oxide

Will Nitrous Oxide Relieve Stress?

Nitrous oxide relieves both stress and dental anxiety in adults and children. Our dentist can adjust the mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen for patients to ensure their comfort. Once our dentist is finished, he or she will give the patient oxygen to clear the patient’s head and prevent headaches.

Is Laughing Gas Expensive?

Our dentist will talk you to about the fee for laughing gas, as it varies between procedures.

Oral Cancer Screening

Is an Oral Cancer Screening Complicated?

No, our dentist performs a visual inspection during your exam. If he or she finds anything suspicious, you may have to come back in to see if anything has changed.

Do I Have to Pay for an Oral Cancer Screening?

The basic oral cancer screening is usually part of your regular dental exam. There are more in-depth screenings that our dentist may suggest if you have a high risk for oral cancer.

Sealants

Are Teeth Sealants Effective?

Teeth sealants are quite effective: studies have shown that they prevent of 80 percent of the cavities a child would normally get in his or her molars. Children get most of their cavities in their molars and premolars.

How Much Is a Dental Sealant Treatment?

We base your cost for a dental sealant treatment on the number of teeth sealed. Dental insurance typically covers sealants for children as a preventative measure against cavities. If you are interested in a dental sealant treatment, call our office to schedule an appointment.

Sedation Dentistry

What Is Oral Sedation?

Oral sedation usually refers to a dentist using a prescription medication to relax you. The medication is taken before the procedure, and then given time to work before our dentist proceeds.

What Does Sedation Usually Cost?

We base your sedation dentistry cost on the type of sedation used.

Why Choose Sedation Dentistry?

If you are apprehensive about having a specific procedure done, or going to the dentist in general, you will put it off. If you have sedation, which could also be nitrous oxide, you’ll see that you can remain comfortable during a procedure with a dentist. Hopefully, you won’t let you fear keep you from getting the dental care you need to have a nice, healthy smile ever again.
