The American Dental Association recommends that patients see their dentist at least twice a year. More frequent visits may be necessary depending on the state of a person’s oral health. Here at Galleria Dentistry, we’ll begin your treatment with a thorough dental evaluation and an hour-long cleaning. This time will allow us to inspect your entire mouth for any suspicious areas or signs of decay as well as clean your teeth of plaque and calculus deposits that may have hardened to the point that they can’t be removed with regular brushing and flossing. While there may be some problems you can discover at home in front of the mirror, a dentist’s trained eye can spot potentially dangerous conditions and injuries that may go entirely overlooked without regular appointments.
This material is designed to prevent decay from forming on the chewing surfaces of the teeth by sealing the grooves, especially the molars, which can be hard for younger patients to brush. But whereas fluoride is a mineral that strengthens enamel, sealants protect teeth with a thin layer of plastic. The treatment process with sealants is quick, and the results are both safe and long-lasting. Patients may enjoy up to ten years of protection with this treatment.
Do you grind or clench your teeth often, especially when you sleep? Are headaches, earaches, or jaw stiffness a regular part of your life? In both cases, our Naples office can provide you with the help you need to enjoy better health and wellbeing again. Using a special oral appliance, we can help you control your condition, whether it's related to nightly teeth grinding (a condition known as bruxism) or a misaligned bite (TMJ dysfunction). The symptoms of both conditions are very similar, and if left untreated, both can have a dramatic impact on the health and beauty of your smile. Call or visit our office to learn more about how an oral appliance could help you.
