Dental Checkups & Cleanings

Healthy teeth and gums can only be achieved with good at-home oral hygiene habits and regular, six-month dental checkups and cleanings. Dr. Skerl and Dr. Plucinsky will fully examine your mouth after reviewing detailed X-rays and images before you undergo professional teeth cleaning. If a personalized treatment plan is required, we’ll review it with you and go over any additional questions you might have about your oral health or upcoming procedure.

Oral Cancer Screening

During a regular checkup, we will perform an external and visual exam to check for any signs of oral cancer. Because it is necessary to detect symptoms early for a higher chance of survival, our team will be thorough in our evaluation. If we notice anything, we’ll ask that you return in a few weeks to determine if the issues remain. If they do, we will arrange for you to undergo a biopsy for further treatment.

Fluoride Treatment

Tooth enamel is already considered the hardest substance in the body, but to keep it strong, you need fluoride. Apart from giving your teeth the durability they need, this natural mineral also works to eliminate tooth decay. If you or a loved one is prone to cavities, we can apply a coating during a regular checkup so that your teeth remain better protected between appointments. In just seconds, your smile will look and feel better than before.

Nightguards for Bruxism

Worn tooth enamel and chronic jaw pain are just a few of the possible problems that come with clenching or grinding your teeth at night. With a customized nightguard, however, we can address your bruxism with a durable appliance that you wear while you sleep. It not only keeps your teeth from touching, but it also helps to relieve the pressure from your jaw joints so that you can wake up more refreshed each day.
