Dr. Salibian makes sure that no stone goes left unturned by providing a thorough dental checkup every six months. He utilizes crystal clear digital X-ray imaging and intraoral cameras to spot the smallest symptoms of oral health problems. After this portion of your semi-annual visit, one of our skilled dental hygienists will use special dental instruments to clear all plaque and tartar buildup to prevent cavity and gum disease development. After quickly polishing and flossing your teeth, you’ll be done!
Nightly teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is a common condition among both children and adults. It can occur due to a variety of issues, including stress, TMJ dysfunction, or a misaligned bite. Either way, it’s crucial to protect your teeth from nightly gnashing and clenching so you don’t wake up with a dental emergency on your hands. We offer customized mouthguards built to withstand nightly grinding and protect your teeth and facial muscles without making it uncomfortable to sleep.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that can be found in a variety of items that you use or consume in your daily life. It’s crucial for the development of the protective outer layer of your teeth, called the enamel. Without enough of it, you could be more susceptible to cavity formation and declining oral health. We offer a fast and pain-free treatment where we simply place a fluoridated topical gel on your teeth to strengthen your enamel.
Every six months, we’ll provide you with an oral cancer screening to identify any abnormalities or common signs of the disease. We use Identafi®, an oral mucosal visual enhancement system, that uses multi-spectral fluorescence and reflectance technology to alert us to any suspicious areas of your oral tissue that may be invisible to the naked eye. With routine screenings, we hope to diagnose these symptoms early on, to increase the survival rate for this life-threatening disease.
