Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
Just two dental checkups and cleanings per year can go a long way toward maintaining a healthy smile. During a professional teeth cleaning, our hygienist can remove plaque that you may have missed when brushing and flossing at home. This greatly reduces your risk of tooth decay, infections, and other oral health concerns. Dr. Roberson also examines your mouth for signs of these issues and can stop them in their tracks long before you would have even noticed them.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Many people grind their teeth at night without even knowing it, often because of stress. Over time, unconscious teeth grinding (a condition known as bruxism) can wear down your teeth and even cause them to fracture. Luckily, Dr. Roberson can find signs of bruxism during your routine checkups and provide you with a custom-fitted nightguard to wear to bed, preventing your upper and lower teeth from wearing each other down as you sleep.
Fluoride is an incredibly vital mineral for teeth, as it makes enamel stronger against cavity-causing bacteria. You can often find it in the foods you eat as well as public drinking water and your at-home oral hygiene products. To give you or your child’s teeth some added protection, we can apply a topical fluoride varnish. While fluoride is often associated with children, adults can also benefit from these treatments.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Every year, more than 50,000 American adults are diagnosed with oral cancer, and its survival rate is directly linked to how quickly it’s detected. Dr. Roberson quickly yet thoroughly screens for oral cancer during your regular exams. His expertly trained eyes can spot the earliest warning signs, giving you and your family members the highest possible chance of a proper diagnosis and a successful recovery.
