We want to help you get healthy and feel great! Our general and preventive services are designed to keep an eye on your health, prevent problems, and fix them in a proactive and conservative way.
Knowing what is happening in your mouth is a big part of keeping your teeth healthy and strong. So much happens in your mouth that you can’t feel or see until it is very advanced – and that’s when it gets painful and expensive. Regular comprehensive exams and checkups from Midtown Dental allow us to find problems early when treatment is much simpler and faster.
Oral cancer isn’t a cancer many of us think of as potentially fatal – but it is. The truth is, about 3% of cancers in men and 2% of cancers in women are oral cancers, and, according to the American Cancer Society, one of the few cancers for which the death rate is increasing. This may be due to the fact that the cancer can grow and evolve without many symptoms or discomfort. That’s why we always perform oral cancer screenings at every visit. If you haven’t been to see your dentist for a oral health screening recently, please give us a call today. It could save your life!
Your health and safety is our primary concern. That’s why we use digital x-rays for our patients. Not only does it expose you to far less radiation than traditional radiographs, digital x-rays are more accurate and can immediately be saved on our computers for quick and easy review and diagnosis.
Intraoral cameras offer one of the most up close and personal tours of your mouth you will ever experience. This tiny camera fits comfortably in your mouth and allows us to show you magnified images – in real time – of exactly what is happening to your teeth and gums. It is a great educational tool and allows you to make more informed decisions about your smile.
Everyone loves our hygienists! No matter how thorough your cleanings have been in the past, you will marvel at the level of clean we achieve. More importantly, keeping up with your regular hygiene, keeps your teeth and gums free of harmful bacterial buildup – the main cause of gum disease.
If we discover that you are suffering from gum disease, periodontal therapy can work wonders to reverse and even completely heal your gum infection. This is very important – gum disease not only compromises your teeth leading to tooth loss, it also compromises your whole body health and has been shown to contribute to such dangerous issues as heart attacks, strokes, inflammatory problems, certain cancers, and much more. If you want to protect your health, talk to us about periodontal care today.
Fluoride treatments aren’t just for kids anymore! While we do recommend an application of Fluoride for children at every visit, we may recommend that adults receive periodic applications as well. Fluoride helps remineralize and strengthen your teeth and can help prevent such things as sensitivity and root decay in adults.
Protect your smile…and your investment! Active families benefit from our custom-made sports mouthguards for any activity from soccer to skateboarding and everything in between. Boil-and-bite mouthguards are simply not as comfortable or effective and have not been shown to aid in the prevention of concussions the way ours do. For nighttime protection, our nightguards prevent the damage caused by clenching or grinding to save both your natural teeth and your restorations.
No matter how careful we are, emergencies sometimes occur. If you have a dental emergency, get in touch with us right away. We always try to fit emergencies in the same day. If your emergency is after hours or on the weekend, don’t worry. Call our office and you will be directed to one of our doctors. We are here to help whenever you need us!
