Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
While your at-home brushing and flossing matters, no oral care routine is complete without a dentist examining your smile and performing a thorough cleaning. Dr. Heil closely examines your mouth for any underlying signs of dental issues, then performs a cleaning to remove harmful bacteria, plaque and tartar, before it has a chance to cause any damage to your teeth or gums. We typically ask patients to visit once every six months as part of their routine care.
Nightguards for Bruxism
While it often goes unnoticed, chronic teeth grinding and clenching is actually a very common condition known as bruxism. There are many potential causes for bruxism, including an uneven bite or stress, but both result in damaged enamel and even the potential risk of developing a common jaw disorder known as TMD. To protect your smile, Dr. Heil can create a custom-made nightguard, an oral appliance designed with our in-house digital impression technology.
Fluoride is an extremely common mineral found in some foods, most public drinking water systems, and in the many oral care products you use every day. Of course, our dental office also includes it as part of your routine dental appointments through fluoride therapy. Applying fluoride to your teeth following your cleaning only takes a few minutes, is completely painless, and works to strengthen and protect your existing enamel. Even applications just one to two times a year can mean the difference between having a healthy smile and one filled with cavities.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Whether you have multiple risk factors for oral cancer or not, our dental office always stays proactive against this harmful condition that can negatively affect both your oral and overall health. During your routine exams, we perform screenings to confirm the presence of red or white patches of tissue, lumps or bumps in the mouth or neck, and oral sores that have not healed even after multiple weeks. Should we discover signs of untreated oral cancer, we’ll partner you with a trusted physician so you achieve a more detailed diagnosis and can consider your treatment options.
