The standard dental checkup and teeth cleaning are two of the most effective services we provide every day. With them, we’re able to remove the harmful plaque and tartar from your teeth that is the root cause of most dental problems, and they also give Dr. Raj the chance to examine the health of your teeth, gums, jaw, and dental work. Regular exams will allow him to catch any problems you might have early and treat them well before they can affect your smile.
Do you ever wake up in the morning with a sore jaw, or do your teeth appear to have been worn down flat? If so, you may be suffering from bruxism, a condition where a person unconsciously clenches their jaw and grinds their teeth while they sleep. We can help keep your smile protected using something called a nightguard, which you’ll only need to wear to bed. This custom-made mouthpiece will place a firm but comfortable barrier on your teeth to keep them from grinding together.
One of the most common causes of broken and knocked out teeth are sports injuries, but fortunately, you can easily avoid these kinds of mishaps simply by wearing a protective mouthguard the next time you hit the field, mat, or court. Our custom-made mouthguards are much stronger and comfortable than anything you can buy at the store, ensuring you can keep your mind on the game and keep your smile in one piece every time you play.
Oral cancer is an often fatal disease that is actually very treatable when detected early, which is why Dr. Raj recommends that all adults should have at least one oral cancer screening per year. He can perform one as part of your regular checkups, and they only take a few minutes. He’ll look at your lips, gums, tongue, cheeks, throat, neck, and face for any signs of the disease, and should he find something, he can quickly help you arrange follow-up treatment.
