Teeth Cleanings

The best way to prevent excessive plaque buildup is to schedule a professional teeth cleaning with our dentists every six months. Plaque that is left untreated can turn into tartar which can only be removed by our hygienists. A routine dental cleaning lasts about one hour and will include gentle scaling and polishing for a clean result.

Dental Exams

In order to maintain a healthy smile, it is important that our dentists perform comprehensive examinations of your teeth, gums, and jaws. With advanced dental technology, such as digital X-rays, we can effectively monitor the condition of your teeth and identify early signs of decay. Exams also allow our staff to assess the state of your gums and their position along your teeth.

Oral Cancer Screenings

In America, approximately 54,000 new cases of oral cancer are detected every year. At our Ann Arbor dental practice, we perform quick oral cancer screenings utilizing visual inspection and manual palpation. During the painless screening, your mouth will be checked for abnormalities in the mucosal tissues of your lips, mouth, and upper throat.

Gum Disease Treatment

The gums, ligaments, and bone around the teeth form the foundation for your smile. These structures combined are also called the periodontium. When the periodontium is not healthy, it jeopardizes the teeth just as a bad foundation would threaten the stability of a house. Common signs of gum disease include tissue that is red, bleeds easily, or pulls away from the tooth.

Dental Sealants

Sealants are used to help fill in narrow grooves or pits in the back molars that even a toothbrush can’t reach. Unfortunately, food debris can get inside these areas and form cavities. Our dentists can brush sealants onto the chewing surface of your molars to prevent plaque and food particles from building up inside those very grooves.
