Your Regular Dental Visit
Visiting the dentist every six months is recommended for optimal dental hygiene. Any concerns that may arise with your dental health can be addressed early if you see the dentist regularly. At Soundbridge Dental Arts and Sleep Therapy, we provide a soothing environment and advanced technology so you can relax while we keep your teeth bright.
Dental Exams & Cleanings
Though daily brushing and flossing keep your teeth in good shape, even the best of us miss spots. When you visit us, your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned to make sure all areas are clear of plaque and tartar. This cleaning keeps bacteria from destroying your teeth so you can be confident when you smile.
During exams, we check for cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues. Many of these issues progress to be more serious and require more complex procedures if they are not treated early.
To protect your health, we also offer oral cancer screenings during your routine dental visits. Catching a life-threatening disease while it is easier to treat could save your life.
To make sure we are keeping your smile healthy, our office is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and materials. We use digital x-rays for increased information about your health, and our dentists attend continuing education courses so we’re always on top of the latest dental knowledge.
Cavities & Root Canals
Spots you miss while brushing and flossing may develop into tooth decay. Decay is caused by bacteria that feed on plaque and tartar, eating away at the enamel and eventually into the inside of your tooth. The hole left by this is called a cavity. A small cavity found early on can be filled easily.
If left unchecked, tooth decay can progress through the tooth until it reaches the root canal. This is where the pulp of the tooth is, containing sensitive tissues. If these tissues become infected, root canal therapy is required to save the natural tooth.
Gum Disease Treatment
Periodontal/gum disease can also be discovered during the dental exam. Gum disease occurs when infection builds up in the gums over a long period of time and eventually attack the bone. A dentist cleans the disease away and treats the affected areas.
We offer a variety of gum disease solutions for every stage and severity of the condition.
