Teeth grinding and clenching, also known as bruxism, can develop in just about anyone, including young children. While stress can be a cause, it’s more likely to occur if you have an uneven bite or misaligned teeth. In the event that we notice your tooth enamel eroding as a result of grinding and clenching, we’ll create a custom-made oral appliance that protects them from future damage. Most bruxism cases involve unconscious grinding while asleep, so your appliance will be worn throughout the night.
With an estimated 54,000 people projected to be diagnosed with oral cancer this year, it’s more important than ever to get screened on a regular basis. During your routine dental checkup, we’ll make sure to perform a detailed examination to search for the signs of oral cancer development. This includes sores that do not heal, lumps or bumps, and red or white patches of tissue throughout the mouth. We’ll connect you with a medical practitioner if needed so you can be put on the right path towards treatment.
You may have heard dentists talk about fluoride in the past, and that’s because the mineral is essential to long-term oral health. While you need to make sure that you’re getting fluoride in the meals you eat (primarily through tap water) and the oral care products you use, patients should also receive regular fluoride applications at our dental office. Applying fluoride only takes a minute, keeps tooth enamel strong, and protects it from cavity-causing bacteria.
