Protects Healthy Teeth & Gums

While our team is more than capable of addressing dental damage and decay that may arise, we’d very much prefer to help our patients avoid these issues in the first place. That’s why Dr. Cure and Dr. Smith emphasize the power of preventive care whenever possible, which includes regular checkups and cleanings, protective oral appliances, diagnostic screenings, and more. Our goal is to discover potential concerns as soon as they make themselves known, potentially saving you and your family from a great deal of cost and time down the road.

Check-Ups & Cleanings

Patients of all ages should be attending regular dental appointments at least twice each calendar year – maybe more if you are struggling with oral health problems that need extra diligence to control. These visits help our dentists and team members form a comprehensive understanding of your dental health needs, as well as identify any concerning changes as early as possible. Our approach includes a thorough visual examination, X-rays, professional hygiene, a periodontal screening, oral cancer screening, and more so that no stone (or tooth) is left unturned.

Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal disease (more commonly known as gum disease) is one of the most common health issues in the world, not to mention the leading cause of tooth loss among American adults. Early diagnosis and intervention is extremely important when it comes to protecting your smile from this gradual infection. If needed, our hygiene team can perform a deep cleaning known as scaling and root planing that will eliminate dangerous accumulations of plaque and tartar from throughout the mouth.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a simple and effective preventive measure that our team usually recommends to children, although adults may benefit as well in certain cases. They can be used to seal the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (premolars and molars), which have deep pits and grooves that are likely to attract food particles over time, leading to cavities. This is especially common in younger patients, as they’re still learning how to brush and floss these hard-to-reach areas. Dental sealants provide a valuable boost of added protection that will keep smiles stronger and safer over time.

Nightguards for Bruxism

Bruxism (more commonly referred to as teeth grinding) is a very common “bad habit” that can affect kids and adults alike, resulting in worn-down teeth, chronic jaw pain, and other consequences. What’s worse is that a majority of patients only experience it while they’re sleeping, leaving them unaware of how the damage is happening. Thankfully, our dental team is very familiar with the tell-tale signs, and we’ll be sure to raise the alarm if we notice them during a regular appointment. A custom-made nightguard can protect your teeth from grinding as you rest easy until morning.

Mouthguards / Sportsguards

Are you or your child a big athlete? Do you regularly participate in sports where coming in contact with other players, objects, or hard surfaces is a possibility? When buying helmets and kneepads, it’s important to remember that your smile is at risk too from injury. Dr. Cure and Dr. Smith can design a custom-made sportsguard that blows “one-size-fits-all” devices out of the water. These oral appliances feel comfortable in the mouth, remain sturdily in place as you run around the court, and even have enough flexibility for talking.

Oral Cancer Screening

You may not hear the words “oral cancer” in the dentist’s office as often as “gum disease” or “cavities,” but that doesn’t mean it isn’t something to worry about – in fact, it’s estimated that one person dies from this type of cancer every hour on average. Dr. Cure and Dr. Smith want to be your first line of defense against this dangerous condition, which is why oral cancer screenings are integrated into every checkup. If we discover any signs of abnormalities in your oral tissue, further testing will be strongly recommended.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is a natural mineral that’s regularly added to community water supplies here in the United States – but why? Countless studies have shown us over time that a safe amount of exposure to fluoride can actually benefit your oral health in big ways over time, leading to stronger tooth enamel and fewer instances of cavities. If you and your family aren’t taking full advantage of fluoridated water, professional treatments are also available at our practice and can be provided during cleanings.
