When it comes to dental care, the team at Dentistry By Brand believes in a prevention-first approach. Instead of just fixing cavities, we work to proactively stop them from developing in the first place, safeguarding our patients’ health while helping them save time and money in our dental office. With routine appointments and the other services listed on this page, we can ensure that you and your loved ones all enjoy beautiful, problem-free smiles year after year. To schedule your next checkup, contact us today.
If you’re hoping to stay cavity-free for the foreseeable future, make sure you brush and floss your teeth every day, but don’t forget to get checkups and cleanings at least once every six months as well! These appointments will enable us to spot and treat any minor problems before they can turn into major headaches, plus our hygiene team will have the chance to remove harmful plaque and tartar buildup from those areas in your mouth your brush and floss can’t reach.
While we’d prefer that our patients only dream while they sleep, unfortunately, some unconsciously grind their teeth and clench their jaw as well, which can be very damaging over time. This is called bruxism, and it’s a very common response to daily stress. As you can imagine, it’s really hard to break a habit that only happens while you’re asleep, which is why we’re happy to provide our patients with nightguards. Much like the name, this is a small oral appliance worn to bed that literally guards teeth against coming together during the night.
The best way to treat oral cancer is to catch it early, but it can be pretty easy to miss during its initial stages. That’s why, whenever you come to see us, our team will perform a thorough cancer screening. Our trained eyes will be able to spot any suspicious areas way before you can, and if we find anything, we can help you get the care you need right away.
Fluoride is a mineral that has been used to fight cavities for decades, and you’ll still find it added to most oral healthcare products and community water sources. To give our patients an extra boost of cavity protection and repair any areas of minor decay, we can apply topical fluoride varnish as part of their regular checkups. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s one of the best ways to keep a smile healthy between appointments.
