Fluoride treatments consist of a fluoride-rich liquid that is painted onto your teeth after your teeth cleaning. Fluoride has the unique ability to remineralize teeth, reversing the effects of minor tooth decay and preventing cavities from forming. When applied regularly, fluoride treatments can even help reverse the first stage of tooth decay, known as a “soft spot.”
Dental sealants use a special type of clear dental resin to cover up your teeth and protect them from cavities. They are usually applied on the rear teeth, as these are the most cavity-prone. Resin is applied to each tooth, then hardened with UV light to create a transparent barrier. This prevents acid, bacteria, and food from contacting the tooth directly, thereby preventing cavities.
Treat Gum Disease
If you have gum disease, it’s important to get care right away to halt or reverse the progression of the disease. We offer dental prophylaxis treatment to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums and prevent the buildup of the bacteria which cause gum disease.
We also provide scaling & root planing (deep cleaning), which involves scraping away plaque and tartar from between your teeth and smoothing your gums. Together, these treatments can help reverse or halt the early stages of gum disease, and prevent further damage to your teeth and gums.
Catch Issues Early
Oral Cancer Screenings
As part of your routine checkup and cleaning at Twenty28 Dentistry, we offer oral cancer screenings. Using intraoral cameras, we will look for lesions, patches of irregular tissue, and any other signs of a potential issue. If we notice any irregularities, we will refer you to a specialist for further treatment, if necessary.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea can cause poor quality sleep, irritability, and insomnia in the short-term, and has serious long-term health effects such as increasing your risk of heart attack and stroke. We can treat gum disease with oral appliance therapy. An oral appliance is a special, mouthguard-like device which shifts the position of your mouth and jaws during sleep. This prevents oral tissue from obstructing the airway, which allows you to breathe normally at night.
Stay Proactive, Avoid Issues
