We offer the following preventive care services:
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
Visiting your dentist for a professional cleaning at least twice a year is an easy way to preserve your smile and oral health. At All Smiles Dentistry, Dr. Catherine Mentesana and her team provide ultra-thorough dental cleanings to help our patients reduce the risk of developing potentially serious oral health issues like tooth decay and gum disease. For every preventive exam and cleaning, our team uses the latest dental tools to provide comfortable, efficient care. Your dental cleaning will typically last 45 minutes or less.
Each preventive appointment will begin with a thorough exam to assess the health of your gums, cheeks, teeth, and tongue. We'll then take a set of comfortable x-rays to further assess the jaw, tooth roots, and structures of the mouth. State-of-the-art digital x-rays help our team at All Smiles Dentistry diagnose potentially serious oral health problems that aren’t often visible during a traditional oral exam. Afterward, our dentist will perform a gentle teeth cleaning to remove hard-to-reach plaque from the smile, before polishing to address unwanted stains and discoloration. In some instances, we may recommend an additional mineralizing treatment to help strengthen the teeth even further.
Nightguards For TMJ Pain
Do you grind your teeth (bruxism) while you sleep? This condition can lead to headaches, TMJ, and uneven tooth wear. Dr. Mentesana offers custom-crafted night guards to help correct the habit and preserve your teeth. Our special orthodontics offer patients relief from bite function problems and painful headaches!
Mouthguards For Athletics
If you are involved in any type of sport, smile protection is critical! One of your best pieces of insurance is a simple, custom-fitted athletic mouthguard. Our mouthguards are customized to each and every patient, providing superior protection of the teeth - and even further protection against concussions.
Desensitizing Treatments For Sensitive Teeth
If you are sensitive to heat and cold, and you avoid certain foods or drinks because of this, our team has a solution for you! After ruling out any serious causes, Dr. Mentesana will apply a special paste designed to keep the sensitivity at bay for months!
