Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

When you maintain your regular six-month dental checkups and cleanings, you are taking the proper steps to defend your smile against cavities and gum disease. We will thoroughly examine your smile, clean your teeth to remove hardened plaque and tartar, and discuss treatment should there be areas within your mouth that require additional care.

Nightguards for Bruxism

Bruxism (unconscious teeth grinding while sleeping) is an unfortunate and unhealthy habit that not only wears down tooth enamel but also causes chronic jaw pain over time. Without a customized nightguard, you run the risk of developing tooth sensitivity as well as TMJ/TMD. To avoid this possibility, we can create a custom-made oral device that you wear at night to keep your upper and lower arches from touching each other. This safeguards your smile and improves your quality of sleep.

Fluoride Treatments

Not all patients get enough fluoride each day. Although it’s found in toothpaste, fruits and vegetables, and some tap water, you may need more, especially if you are at a high risk of cavities. Fortunately, Dr. Civetti offers fluoride treatments, which can be applied during a regular checkup. Applying it to the surfaces of your teeth will create a stronger barrier against all harmful particles that can easily cause tooth decay.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Dr. Civetti is pleased to be an ally in the fight against oral cancer. Because this disease takes the life of one person every hour in the United States, she and our team perform thorough oral cancer screenings during regularly scheduled dental checkups. Here, we will look for any abnormalities (i.e., lesions, discolored patches of soft tissues, etc.) that might point to oral cancer. Although most patients are cleared, we will refer you to a specialist if we find anything that might be of concern.
