teeth cleanings, exams & x-rays
In order to maintain a healthy smile, it’s crucial to visit us for a checkup at least twice a year.
During these visits, we’ll clean and polish your teeth, examine your mouth for signs of any issues, and take X-rays if necessary.
This will ensure that plaque and tartar don’t build up in your teeth, helping to prevent cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems.
Sealants are clear plastic coatings that can be applied to the surface of your teeth for an extra layer of protection against decay.
They’re typically most effective for younger patients who may not be as thorough with their oral care routine.
Sealants will guard your teeth against cavities, helping your smile stay healthy for many years to come.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that restores and strengthens tooth enamel.
When you visit us for checkups, we can apply fluoride to your teeth to keep them strong and healthy.
Fluoride helps prevent cavities by making your teeth more resistant to harmful acids from plaque and sugars.
It’s especially important for young patients, as it aids in the development of their permanent teeth.
Grinding or clenching your teeth overnight, also known as bruxism, can lead to severe pain and a variety of dental issues without treatment.
That’s why we offer customized mouthguards to relieve the pressure from your teeth and improve your quality of life.
Our mouthguards are also a great choice for athletes, especially those who play sports with a high risk of collisions such as football or basketball.
ARESTIN® gum treatment
If you have periodontal disease, one of our dentists can apply ARESTIN to your gum tissue for a fast and painless treatment.
This convenient antibiotic helps to disinfect your gums and reduce the size of periodontal pockets.
ARESTIN is typically applied at the end of a scaling and root planing treatment. It’ll fight your infection for at least two weeks, helping to keep your mouth free of bacteria.
oral cancer screenings
As part of your regular checkups, our Saad dental team will always perform an oral cancer screening.
This consists of a visual examination of your mouth, cheeks, and neck to detect any potential signs of the disease.
Oral cancer is a deadly disease that kills over 9,750 Americans every year.
By checking at least twice a year, we can stay ahead of any developing infection and ensure that you get treatment as early as possible.
