Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
Professional checkups and cleanings are the true backbone of a strong and healthy smile that lasts for life, and we strongly encourage patients of all ages to maintain these appointments over the years. During the visit, Dr. Saremi or Dr. De Vincenzo will provide a dedicated screening that includes each natural tooth, the gum tissue, any existing restorations, the overall bite, and much more, taking care to pinpoint any concerning symptoms as soon as they appear. Our talented hygienist will also thoroughly remove harmful bacteria in the form of plaque and tartar buildup, leaving the entire smile nicely polished.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Did you know that around 25% of oral cancer cases occur in patients who participated in NO known risk factors (such as heavy drinking and tobacco use) beforehand? Detecting and treating this deadly condition as early as possible is extremely important, and your chosen dental office can be the first line of defense. During routine checkups, our dentists will perform a full visual examination of the oral tissue and focus specifically on tell-tale symptoms of cancerous cells, including suspicious sores and discoloration. A biopsy can be arranged if any suspicious findings arise from the screening.
While fluoride treatment is often thought of as a service for kids, adults can also benefit from more exposure to this valuable mineral! By remineralizing the enamel and reducing the risk of decay development, this preventive service may be the right choice for patients with gum recession, overly sensitive teeth, or who have a generally high risk for cavities. The application process only takes a few minutes and can be performed following a routine cleaning.
Nightguards for Bruxism
If you regularly wake up in the mornings with aching jaw pain, it may be worthwhile to explore the possibility of untreated bruxism. This “bad habit” (also known as teeth grinding) affects patients of all ages, many of whom only experience it while asleep and unaware of the gradual damage they’re causing to their teeth. At Cimarron Family Dentistry, we can screen for bruxism during regular checkups and provide custom-made nightguards as needed to keep smiles safer. The durable structure of the appliance will establish a barrier between the rows of teeth and prevent harmful contacts.
At-Home Hygiene Products
While professional checkups and cleanings at a trusted dentist’s office are a very important part of maintaining oral health, the way you brush and floss at home also plays a crucial role. If you need help with choosing the best oral hygiene products (such as toothpaste or mouthwash) for yourself and your loved ones, be sure to let our team know! We can recommend top-tier brands that do a great job, including Sensodyne and Colgate.
