Your body and mind all work together to keep you healthy; looking after your oral hygiene is just as essential as taking care of your heart or your lungs. Brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist periodically are great ways to prevent both minor and major dental issues now and in the future.
Dental Cleaning and Exams
Coming in for regular dental evaluations is a simple yet effective way to take charge of your oral health. We offer cleanings and exams to every patient, both new and returning. We’ll help you identify any potential problems as well as discussing ways to help you prevent them from occurring.
Oral Cancer Screening
Arguably, one of the most useful ways to prevent any form of cancer, including oral cancer, is early screening and therefore, early detection. At Apple’s Crown Dental, we recognize how important this is for all our patients. Screening for oral cancer and any irregular entities is an aspect of dental care we take seriously to ensure your oral health is in good standing.
Root Canal Therapy
Our teeth are strong, but they’re susceptible to plaque build-up and infections too. Root canal therapy is a process that encompasses scraping out the damaged pulp inside the middle of your tooth and placing a cap overtop of the affected tooth for further protection. This kind of treatment is done to save as much as your tooth as possible.
Dental sealants are thin coverings, typically fashioned from plastic, that are placed over the top of your teeth to stop bacteria from gathering and building up in the crevasses that cover their surface. Dental sealants are usually placed on premolars and molars, as these are the most difficult teeth to brush properly.
Similarly to root canals treatments, teeth extractions and wisdom teeth removals are two common, routine procedures. Many people receive tooth extractions as a means to boost their oral health, as it helps with excessive crowding, and decreases the chances of an infection spreading in your mouth.
X-rays have always been a wonderful piece of technology for oral health professionals since they’re able to provide a more accurate image of a patient’s situation. Your dentist will be able to better identify budding cavities and signs of decay and be able to develop a more precise treatment plan for you.
Teeth Whitening (in-office or take-home kits)
Sparkling white smiles have always been coveted regardless of one’s age. At Apple’s Crown Dental, we are here to help you turn your desire into a reality. You deserve to look and feel your best, and a healthy, beautiful smile is just the beginning.
