The best way to combat a cavity is to stop it before it starts. Biannual cleanings and regular exams are an important part of every person’s oral hygiene routine. Seven Hills Dentistry specializes in providing our patients with expert preventive care treatments so you can gain confidence in both the health and look of your smile.
While some patients think that they are only missing out on cleaner teeth, avoiding biannual dental appointments and other prophylactic treatments may leave your smile vulnerable to problems down the road. With x-rays and 3D imaging software, our team can get a close look at your mouth’s health, giving us the ability to stop problems in their tracks!
Plaque and tartar can take hold of teeth throughout the year, lodged in places that even floss is difficult to reach. During your biannual cleaning, our clinicians will remove excess buildup in a gentle and relaxing environment, taking a close look at your teeth and gums for any potential hidden problems.
Routine examinations give our staff an edge when looking for common issues such as gingivitis or uneven tooth wear. Working with a familiar face makes spotting trouble areas that much easier!
Treatments for Sensitivity
Living with oversensitive teeth can seem like a burden. Patients may find it difficult to enjoy their favorite meals because they must avoid hot or cold foods. While there are many reasons why teeth can become overly sensitive, sometimes there is no underlying cause.
In such situations, Seven Hills Dentistry offers patients a specially designed dental paste that may help alleviate sensitivity for months. Our team can also suggest other methods to help stave off the pain while eating, making mealtime something to look forward to again!
Sports injuries can be devastating. Impact to the face may cause loose, cracked, or even missing teeth! Athletic mouthguards are manufactured to fit the patient perfectly, creating a much-needed buffer that keeps teeth safe during the roughest of interactions.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Many people suffer from bruxism, or unconscious tooth grinding, and don’t even know it. During a biannual exam, our staff is able to spot the telltale signs of nighttime grinding. Nightguards protect teeth from grinding while you sleep, reducing headaches, jaw pain, and tooth damage. In addition, we may also recommend orthodontic services that correct biting issues, which may eliminate your bruxism entirely!
