Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
Patients of all ages should regularly see our team every six months for general checkups and cleanings. These visits allow us to identify the needs of each individual as well as check for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, infection, and damage. Dr. Vik will examine the patient’s teeth, soft oral tissues, bite alignment, and any existing restorations. We will also perform a professional cleaning to remove any plaque and tartar build-up as well as discuss tips to use at home to improve oral hygiene habits.
Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a serious oral health condition that occurs when bacteria attack the soft oral tissues that surround a person’s teeth. The initial symptoms are mild (gingivitis), causing redness and tenderness within the gums, but they can quickly escalate to bleeding gums and eventually bone and tooth loss over time. With gum disease treatment, our team can mitigate the potential damage with a deep cleaning that removes bacterial accumulations above and below the gumline to help restore gum health.
Young smiles deserve exceptional dental care as well, which is why we are pleased to provide children’s dentistry services that are designed to help growing teeth develop into healthier adult smiles. Children are often prone to tooth decay as a result of novice oral hygiene habits and unhealthy diets; however, our skilled dentist can lower the risk of decay with fluoride treatments, dental sealants, and other useful treatments. We’ll also monitor their oral and facial development to ensure their smiles remain healthy as they approach adulthood.
Molars and premolars are often the hardest for children to reach when learning to brush their teeth. This is why we provide dental sealants, which serve as an added layer of protection against tooth decay. We can apply these clear coatings to the chewing surfaces of these teeth, creating a barrier against anything that might penetrate the pits and grooves and attempt to destroy tooth enamel. The application is quick and painless and with proper care, patients can maintain their dental sealants for up to a decade.
As a natural mineral commonly found in tap water, fruits, vegetables, and toothpaste, fluoride is used by dentists throughout the country to help children and adults maintain healthier, stronger teeth. Known for its ability to combat tooth decay and strengthen enamel, we can easily apply it during a regular dental checkup so that patients avoid additional appointments. Also, fluoride treatments are completely painless, making for a more enjoyable visit.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Thousands of individuals are living with oral cancer each year, and nearly a quarter of them possess no risk factors before being diagnosed. Unfortunately, without early detection, the results can be fatal. At Mayberry Dental, we take it very seriously, which is why we offer oral cancer screenings during every checkup. We’ll closely inspect a person’s gums, tongue, throat, and mouth to check for abnormalities. Should we find any that cause concern, we will recommend the patient receive a biopsy to determine if cancer is present.
Nightguards for Teeth Grinding
Chronic headaches and a sore jaw are the reality for many patients living with bruxism. Also known as teeth grinding and clenching, this unhealthy condition causes worn tooth enamel and severe jaw pain over time. Fortunately, Dr. Vik and our team are here to deliver customized nightguards to keep teeth from touching throughout the night. When worn properly while asleep, the oral device serves as a barrier, better protecting smiles for the future.
