Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
From digital imaging and thorough examination to the precise cleaning that is designed to rid your smile of any bacteria and plaque, regular six-month dental checkups and teeth cleanings are essential if you want to maintain optimal oral health. Our team will provide one-on-one attention to ensure that your dental needs are met, your questions are answered, and your concerns are addressed. We’ll also provide helpful tips to make brushing, flossing, and rinsing easier at home.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Individuals who smoke or drink are not the only ones succumbing to oral cancer. Many people never practice these unhealthy habits and yet, they still experience the symptoms and signs of this deadly disease. At Complete Dental Care of Covington, we want to give you the best chance of survival, which is why we offer oral cancer screenings during regular dental checkups. If we discover any abnormalities, we will have you see an outside specialist to undergo further testing.
Even the youngest smiles in your family deserve first-rate dental care. This is why Dr. Dhaliwal is pleased to provide children’s dentistry services that not only ensure proper oral growth and development but also minimize the risk of tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease. We’ll also work with your child to establish good oral hygiene habits early on while closely monitoring their bite to confirm it remains in its proper place.
Gum Disease Treatment
Bleeding gums are never something you should neglect or ignore. Instead, it should be a reason why you call our dental office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Navi Dhaliwal. With the help of gum disease treatment, we can use scaling and root planing as well as antibiotic therapy to reduce inflammation, eliminate bacteria, and improve the state of your gum health. Catching the problem early on is best, as it reduces your chances of experiencing gum recession and bone and tooth loss.
Found in toothpaste, tap water, and various fruits and vegetables, fluoride is a natural mineral that many dentists rely on to help cavity-prone smiles. Whether it is you or your child who could use additional protection, fluoride treatments are offered during your regular dental checkups and are painless to perform. With a quick application after thoroughly cleaning teeth, we can safeguard smiles in between appointments, strengthening enamel and preventing decay from penetrating the teeth and causing cavities.
More commonly used on young patients, dental sealants are viewed as protective barriers against tooth decay. Because molars and premolars have many pits and grooves, it’s easy for food particles and bacteria to become trapped. With dental sealants, though, we can apply a clear coating over the chewing surfaces, making it impossible for harmful acids and plaque to form and damage these teeth. As long as your child commits to taking proper care of their smile, these sealants can stay in place for up to a decade.
Athletic Mouthguards / Sportsguards
Sports-related dental injuries are high among athletes. Proper mouth protection must be worn to avoid accidental damage. With a customized mouthguard/sportsguard provided by our dental office, you can expect to feel more at ease while engaging in contact sports. Instead of being worried that you’ll knock out a tooth and have to see an emergency dentist, you can play knowing that your mouth is effectively and comfortably safeguarded against any sudden blow or fall.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Unlike a mouthguard that is worn to protect teeth while playing sports, a custom-made nightguard is used to improve the symptoms associated with bruxism, also known as teeth grinding or clenching. This protective device shields the upper and lower arches of teeth from touching throughout the night. Not only does a nightguard help to reduce the damage caused by enamel wear and tear, but it also alleviates chronic jaw pain, which can develop as a result of bruxism.
