Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

No at-home oral care routine is enough to catch everything, which is why routine checkups and cleanings every six months are recommended by Dr. Parsons and dentists across the country. During your exam, he inspects your teeth, gums, oral tissues, jaw, throat, and other oral structures to ensure no underlying problems are present. A dedicated hygienist will perform a detailed cleaning to remove plaque and tartar before it has a chance to cause cavities and gum disease.

Children’s Dentistry

Dentistry is important at every age, but it’s arguably more important at younger ages when your child doesn’t quite have their brushing and flossing perfected yet. Generally, we recommend bringing your child in for a checkup once their first tooth erupts or within six months of their first birthday. During their visit, we’ll spend time educating you on best oral care practices to maintain at home and future treatments to consider. As they age, their exams and cleanings will become more involved to help them slowly yet surely acclimate to the dental office.

Oral Cancer Screening

While you may not notice it, Dr. Parsons always performs an oral cancer screening during your routine exam. Dentists are in a unique position to catch the early signs of oral cancer sooner than other medical professionals – something that is especially crucial for this condition in particular. Using magnification, we’ll take note of any symptoms that are a cause for concern and partner you with a local specialist so you can receive a more detailed diagnosis.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is one of the most important minerals you can get for your oral health because it’s proven to keep cavity production low and make it more difficult for plaque to form on teeth. To stay proactive, our dental office provides a fluoride varnish that’s gently applied to the surface of teeth following you or your child’s cleaning. We often recommend it for young patients, but adults can benefit from it as well.

Nightguards for Teeth Grinding

Chronic teeth grinding can occur due to stress, an uneven bite, and jaw injuries that never healed properly. However, they all lead to the same problem: a higher risk for worn down enamel and cracked teeth. With a custom-made nightguard from our dental office, you can provide your smile the cushion and protection it needs when you unconsciously grind and clench your teeth. This oral appliance can be worn comfortably while you sleep, reducing your risk for dental problems and higher oral healthcare costs later.
