Preventive care is the foundation of your dental health. By maintaining regular visits to Park City Dentistry, potential problems can be avoided altogether or treated at an early stage. Your regular, six-month checkups and cleanings are vital to a strong, healthy smile. Dr. Calderwood and the rest of our team will treat your family like old friends starting at your very first appointment, ensuring you’ll never have to dread going to the dentist again.
Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
Avoiding a problem is much easier than getting one fixed, and that’s exactly what dental checkups and cleanings are designed to do for your teeth! Our hygienists are able to remove harmful plaque and tartar from the mouth that your brush and floss can’t reach at home, and with an exam performed by Dr. Calderwood, you can rest assured any minor issues are taken care of as quickly as possible. That way, you won’t need more extensive (and expensive!) procedures in the future.
Nightguards for Bruxism
People are stressed more than ever these days, and for many, this causes them to grind their teeth in their sleep, which is known as bruxism. Over time, this can wear down the teeth, strain the jaw, and even cause chronic headaches. To help patients rest easy and keep their smile in one piece, Dr. Calderwood can provide custom-made nightguards. These are small oral appliances worn to bed that protect the teeth by placing a barrier between them, preventing any grinding.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer is very easy to miss during its initial stages, leading many patients to notice symptoms and seek out care only after the disease has become quite advanced. To make sure it doesn’t have a chance to sneak up on our patients, Dr. Calderwood performs an oral cancer screening at each and every checkup. He’ll be able to spot any indications of cancer in your mouth much sooner than you will, so this is just another reason to not miss out on your regular appointments!
Fluoride is all around us if you really look. You’ll find it added to almost every oral healthcare product and even the water that comes out of your tap. This is good news because when it’s exposed to the teeth, it actually helps make the enamel more resistant to damage and decay. At Park City Dentistry, we use fluoride every single day to keep our patients healthy between appointments. When you or your family come to see us, we can coat your teeth in a fluoride varnish to quickly strengthen them and repair any areas of minor damage to stop cavities before they even start.
At-Home Oral Hygiene Products
Are you and your loved ones using the right dental products every day? It can be tough to know given that every toothpaste and mouthwash claims to be “the best.” In truth, every smile is unique and should be using products suited to a person’s particular needs. At you or your child’s next appointment, our team would be happy to let you known which oral healthcare products are ideally suited to your particular smiles so you can get the most out of your oral hygiene routine.
