Cleanings And ExamsProfessional cleanings performed by a hygienist are as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Twice yearly dental check-ups and cleanings help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair. Read More About Dental Checkups
Oral Cancer ScreeningsOral cancer is one of the most treatable forms of cancer when it is caught early, which is why screenings are very important. In simple terms, an oral cancer screening is us taking a really good look around your mouth. We can perform these screenings during your regular dental exam. Read More About Oral Cancer Screenings.
Periodontal Care and MaintenanceOne of the best ways to keep your gums from bleeding when you come in for a cleaning is to floss regularly. Brushing your teeth before or after flossing is less important than whether you floss or not. Read More About Your Periodontal Care
Patients who have periodontal disease and need to come in for deep cleaning of their teeth and gums may require more frequent appointments to monitor the condition. Some people produce more plaque than others, and you may fall into that category. If that is your situation, we will usually ask that you come to see us every four months instead of the twice a year visit. Read more about regular periodontal maintenance.
Night GuardsIf you have jaw pain that you can’t explain, or your jaw pops in out when you chew or open your mouth to yawn, you may have bruxism, a disorder that causes you to grind and clench your teeth at night. Some symptoms are very painful, depending on how long this problem has been going on. The good news is that at Covington Family Dental, we provide several alternatives to improve your symptoms, including the use of night guards for sleeping. Read More About Night Guards
