Making oral health a priority of the family can be a great way to ensure that you make it to your yearly dental visits. Here at Northstar Dental, we treat each and every member of the family to prevent potential dental complications.
Here are some services we provide.
When it comes to your dental health, prevention is always better than treatment. This is why apart from daily flossing and brushing, the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends a routine checkup and professional deep cleaning twice a year.
Plaque often accumulates in places that can’t be reached by brushing or flossing. Eventually, this plaque turns into tartar, which is impossible to remove at home. However, it is possible to regain your oral hygiene through professional dental cleaning twice a year. Not only will this help restore the charm of your smile, but it will also prevent various other dental health issues.
Oral cancer is best detected and diagnosed at its onset for timely treatment. At Northstar Dental, we conduct an oral cancer screening during your yearly dental checkup and even otherwise.
Professional dental care is not only important for your dental health, but also your child’s. It is recommended that you schedule your child’s first dental appointment before their first birthday, continued by regular visits to monitor their oral health development.
Your gum health is just as critical as the health of your teeth. Gum disease is the top cause of tooth loss in the U.S. Gum disease is an infection in the gum tissues that results in red, swollen, and bleeding gums. Fortunately, gum disease can be treated and prevented from further spread if it is caught early enough. Here at Northstar Dental, we often recommend a scaling and root planing procedure if we notice signs of advanced periodontal disease.
Periodontal maintenance refers to the oral health care measures that are taken to ensure that periodontal disease doesn’t reoccur. This is done by keeping your mouth free of bacterial infections. Not only is periodontal maintenance a good preventative measure, but it is also quite beneficial for other aspects of your oral health.
Participating in sports and other physically-demanding activities can put you at risk of dental trauma and injury. We recommend using a mouthguard as a preventative measure to protect your teeth.
Those who suffer from bruxism, also known as teeth grinding, must use a night guard to prevent their teeth enamel from wearing off.
Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction is caused due to dysfunction in the temporomandibular joints that can lead to unbearable pain in the joints, jawbone, and other muscles. Check out how we can help you with this.
Myofunctional therapy occurs as a result of a disorder in your mouth’s myofunctional muscles. Since these muscles are responsible for many functions, you can experience problems with chewing, sucking, swallowing, speech, and even breathing.
