Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

Dental checkups and teeth cleanings are essential if optimal oral health is to be obtained. Every six months, you are encouraged to visit our office and allow our team to examine your oral anatomy so that we can check for cavities, gum inflammation, and oral cancer. During this visit, we’ll also remove any hardened plaque and tartar from above and below the gumline before recommending one or more treatment options should we find areas of concern.

Children’s Dentistry

Establishing good oral hygiene habits at a young age is one of the best moves you can make as a parent. Being proactive about your child’s oral health gives them a greater chance of avoiding sudden trips to the dentist’s office for toothaches, damage, or cavities. But we don’t want you to feel as if you must do it alone. Our team at Waterford Dental Group is here to provide child-friendly dental services that will put your little one’s smile on the right track for the future.

Oral Cancer Screening

A simple oral cancer screening is often performed during a regular dental checkup because of the importance it plays in saving lives. Early detection is vital and often results in a greater chance of survival; however, if left undetected, available treatment may come too late. This is why we will examine your oral and facial structures for any abnormalities so that we can make sure you are free of anything that might otherwise point to oral cancer. But if any problem areas are discovered, we’ll connect you with a local physician for additional testing.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is a safe and effective mineral that is often found in tap water and toothpaste, but if you or your child are prone to cavities and need further help, we can provide additional fluoride treatments during regular checkups. Applied directly onto the surfaces of teeth, the fluoride penetrates the outer layer to create a protective barrier against decay while also helping to strengthen the enamel.

Nightguards for Bruxism

Morning headaches and chronic jaw pain are two of the most common problems that can arise as a result of bruxism. When teeth grind against each other throughout the night, it can leave you with worn-down tooth enamel and additional discomfort throughout your head and mouth. Fortunately, our custom-made nightguards can be used to eliminate the contact between the upper and lower arches of teeth so that your smile remains strong, intact, and pain-free.
