Why Choose Florence Dental Studio for Preventive Dentistry?
- Exceptionally Friendly, Judgment-Free Dentists & Team
Intraoral Camera Lets You
See What We See
& Teeth Cleanings
Regular checkups are a quick and easy opportunity for us to catch early warning signs of oral concerns before they worsen and become more difficult (and expensive) to treat. After thoroughly examining your mouth, our dentists can show you our findings with a small, comfortable intraoral camera – giving you a new perspective of your smile. Then, the dentists remove built-up plaque and tartar from the hard-to-reach parts of your mouth, minimizing the risk of tooth decay, infections, and more.
Nightguards for Bruxism
If you often wake up with headaches, sensitive teeth, or a sore jaw, then you might be unconsciously grinding your teeth while you sleep. Chronic nighttime teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, can wear down the tooth enamel to the point where breakage becomes extremely likely. Luckily, we’re able to help patients with bruxism achieve comfortable sleep again thanks to our custom-made nightguards. These trays fit over your teeth and create cushioning that insulates against the harmful effects of clenching and grinding.
When teeth are exposed to fluoride, this vital mineral strengthens the enamel and even heals areas with early signs of decay, drastically reducing a patient’s risk of cavities. That’s why fluoride has been added to most types of toothpaste and sources of public drinking water. Of course, visiting us is another way to reap the benefits of fluoride! After your cleaning, we can apply a concentrated fluoride paste to your teeth within minutes, safeguarding your smile until your next visit.
Oral Cancer Screenings
More than 40,000 Americans are diagnosed with cancer of the mouth or throat each year. Many patients are not diagnosed until the later stages, but when detected early, oral cancer is often treatable. For that reason, our dentists will visually examine your gums, tongue, lips, cheeks, throat, and neck for any signs of cancerous or precancerous tissue. If we find anything concerning, we’ll advise you on the steps you should take next to maximize your chances of successful recovery.
