Dental Checkups & Cleanings
Standard dental checkups and cleanings are two of the most routine services we provide every day, yet they’re also two of the most crucial. With a professional cleaning, one of our hygienists removes built-up plaque and tartar from your teeth, which could otherwise contribute to gum disease and tooth decay. Then, Dr. Obeid can examine your mouth for early signs of dental health issues and treat them long before they cause serious damage or discomfort. For most patients, we recommend attending a checkup and cleaning once every six months.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Bruxism is a fairly common condition wherein a person grinds their teeth and clenches their jaw as they sleep. Without treatment, bruxism can wear down the teeth to the point where they’re more likely to break, decay, or even fall out! If you’ve been grinding your teeth while sleeping, we can fit you with a custom nightguard to protect against damage. This thin, smooth mouthpiece creates a barrier between your upper and lower arches, preventing them from making contact throughout the night.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Far too often, cancer of the mouth or throat isn’t caught until the later stages, which significantly decreases the chance of making a successful recovery. Early detection can literally be lifesaving, which is why Dr. Obeid performs a thorough oral cancer screening as part of your regular exams. If he finds anything that could indicate oral cancer, he’ll arrange for you to get a proper diagnosis right away.
