Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
Dr. Giron recommends that all patients visit her dental office once every six months for a routine checkup and cleaning so she can review your oral health and help you discover any concerning issues as early in their development as possible. After performing a thorough examination, you’ll also get a chance to learn more about her treatment philosophy as well as get your teeth professionally cleaned. She’s always prepared to listen to your concerns and provides her professional recommendations based on your current circumstances and preferences.
Cavities have a tendency to form in teeth that are the most vulnerable first, which includes the molars and premolars. This can result in a higher risk of cavity development, especially in younger patients who are still perfecting their brushing and flossing technique. To provide additional protection, whether it’s for yourself or your child, dental sealants can be placed to seal the pits and grooves in vulnerable teeth. This preventive treatment is proven to dramatically reduce cavities and help those struggling with plaque buildup and decay.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Also known as teeth grinding, bruxism has the potential to cause significant damage to your tooth enamel over a long period of time. This condition affects patients of all ages and often occurs without the patient even knowing, such as while sleeping. To prevent enamel erosion and keep your teeth strong for years to come, a custom-made nightguard can be made. If you experience chronic headaches or teeth pain, especially after waking up, be sure to tell Dr. Giron. After examining your bite, she can create a nightguard using digital impressions in our dental office.
Early dental visits are essential to establishing successful oral development. When you bring your child in for their first appointment, they are sure to be greeted with a warm smile and a friendly dental office. During their initial exam, Dr. Giron will spend far more time discussing essential at-home oral care as well as treatment recommendations based on your child’s current oral health. As your son or daughter grows, we’ll start to incorporate services like composite resin fillings, professional cleanings, dental sealants, and more.
