We believe in serving the entire family through preventive dentistry. Your oral health is important to us, as well as providing you with ongoing education and awareness in how to maintain the best oral hygiene possible.
Dental services are a crucial aspect of ensuring your oral health is outstanding. Periodic visits to dentists ensure you receive a wide array of preventive, treatment, and diagnostic services. These dental services aim to detect oral diseases early and ensure a healthy smile. When you visit our clinic at Parkway Dentistry, we can offer a variety of services such as:
A dental cleaning aims to remove plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth. It is a preventive measure carried out by us to preserve your oral health and prevent some dental issues. Through our specialized tools, we can clean your gums and teeth.
We often target hard-to-reach areas and ensure that we efficiently remove all stubborn tartar and plaque. Plaque and tartar are known for causing gum disease and decay and must be removed. During routine teeth cleaning procedures, we also conduct flossing and rinsing of your teeth to remove any debris stuck between your teeth. You can consider professional cleaning of your teeth during each dental visit which can be every six months.
Dental checkup are very reliable when it comes to identifying problems in your mouth and helping to prevent them from becoming worse. We recommend our patients come see us every six months for regular dental exams and cleanings. Regular visits and cleanings allow us to keep better track of your oral health and any changes that may be going on inside of your mouth.
During the exam, we will do a general oral screening, orthodontic screening, and take x-rays to help catch any potential issues.
Kids and teens also require specialized dental care. Young children, especially, are prone to cavities and decay due to the high consumption of sugary foods. We have specialized dentists who check the needs of this group and offer customized treatment. Some of our services can include teeth cleanings, gum disease treatment, the placing of braces or aligners, and more.
Periodontal care is the care of your gum tissue. Your gums support your teeth, we want to keep them healthy. Gum disease is a common disorder that can cause a lot of damage. Patients who suffer from chronic gum disease can experience regression in their gum tissues, damage to the connective ligaments, and eventually the loss of alveolar bone.
Whether we spot gingivitis, periodontitis or chronic periodontitis, taking the steps to remove bacteria and keep your gums healthy is important to your oral health.
We typically perform a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums to look for potential symptoms. This may include the use of advanced diagnostic tools such as digital x-rays or an intraoral scanner. We usually measure the depths of your periodontal pockets as well. These grooves between your teeth and gums become deeper as the disease progresses.
TMJ refers to the jaw joint, also known as the temporomandibular joint. Patients can experience dental issues that cause disruption and irritation in the joint. They may experience problems opening or closing their jaw fully, they can also experience clicking or popping sensations, facial pain, or even migraines. Sometimes patients aren’t aware that their symptoms stem from their jaw joint. We can review the joint and look for TMD or temporomandibular joint disorders. There are treatments designed to alleviate any pain or discomfort associated with the TMJ.
Mouth guards can be customized to protect your teeth. This is ideal for patients who participate in recreational sports, outdoor activities, and patients who suffer from a disorder known as bruxism which is the grinding or gnashing of teeth.
Mouth guards, sometimes called a sports guard or night mouth guard depending on their function, provide a layer of protection to your teeth to reduce or prevent damage to your teeth.
Simply wearing an acrylic device can save you pain, expense and time in the chair. Having your mouthguard customized to fit means you are much more likely to wear it, because it was made to fit your mouth.
