Complete Checkups & Cleanings
Preventive Dental Care
Regular check-ups are one of the best ways to help you stay on top of a healthy smile. Our preventive care visits are designed to quickly identify and manage conditions before they cause other types of problems down the road.
Each patient receives a thorough examination including periodontal disease screening, oral cancer screening, and an exam for oral conditions like tooth decay. Dr. Ally will also assess the integrity of existing restorations to ensure their stability between appointments.
Most healthy patients benefit from a cleaning every six months. Dental cleanings remove calcified tartar and loose plaque from the teeth above and below the gum lines – making it easier to avoid gum disease and tooth loss.
Low radiation digital x-rays allow us to screen for conditions that are not visible during a clinical exam. Some of the things we use x-rays for include checking for bone loss, tooth decay, abscesses, eruption patterns, and cysts throughout the jaw.
Protective Mouthguards and Bite Splints
If you’re an athlete, suffer from bruxism (grinding,) or are prone to TMJ related headaches – then a protective guard or splint can help protect your smile. All of our guards are custom made to stay snuggly in place.
Athletic guards can even be customized to match your team colors! Wearing a guard is like having additional insurance on your smile – protecting you from the risk of fractured teeth, TMJ complications, and even sports-related concussions.
We also offer tooth extractions if required.
