Be proactive with your oral health!
Preventative Dentistry is the best way to minimize major dental problems down the road. Early detection from your biannual exams can help keep any problems small. The Buffalo Dental Group will also make sure to review your overall health during your dental visits, because of the important relationship between your oral health and overall health.
Preventive dentistry exams should be twice a year. During a visit at The Buffalo Dental Group, we will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums for any signs of decay and deterioration. We'll also perform a deep cleaning as a part of our preventive dentistry care, as well as provide information that can help you improve your home hygiene routine. Additionally, dental sealants can be applied to the enamel of your teeth for an extra layer of protection against destructive bacteria.
Every time you're in our office for preventive dentistry treatments we check for any signs of oral cancer. The earlier this disease is recognized, the faster we'll be able to plan your course of treatment. Additionally, we screen your gum line to check for gum disease during preventive dentistry visits. Gum disease is another disease that can be easily treated if detected early.
If your teeth appear to be worn down or if we notice a popping or clicking when you open and close your mouth, you may be grinding your teeth while you sleep! This is a fairly common, stress-induced nocturnal habit we often pick up on during preventive dentistry checkups. When you clench your jaw and grind, it can cause damage to your temporomandibular joints (TMJ), which are the joints that connect your lower jaw to your skull. If we note a need for TMJ therapy, those on our team can fit you for an NTI Tension Suppression System. This can alleviate any symptoms you may be experiencing and help you gain a more restful sleep.
It's important to be proactive with your dental health for the wellbeing of your overall health and aesthetics. Call The Buffalo Dental Group today for an appointment!
