An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! We take a conservative approach to dentistry to help patients avoid more serious dental issues down the road.
- Teeth Cleanings & Exams
Patients should visit the dentist twice a year for biannual checkups and exams. This ensures that your oral health is in tip-top shape and that your teeth are plaque-free. At Sterling Heights Dentistry, we will thoroughly clean your teeth and shine them as well as check for any dental issues so that we can treat them while they’re still small.
- Dental Sealants
Molars have natural grooves and crevices on the chewing surface. These grooves can often be breeding grounds for trapped bacteria and food debris. If they aren’t properly sealed off, they can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. We use a long-lasting, plastic coating to seal off the grooves and prevent cavities.
- Fluoride Treatments
Fluoride is a mineral that is used to strengthen and boost tooth enamel. Fluoride remineralizes tooth enamel and also plays an important role in cavity prevention. We provide quick and easy fluoride applications with flavored foam trays and brush on varnishes.
- Custom Mouthguards
At Sterling Heights Dentistry, we design custom-fitted mouthguards for athletes and for patients struggling with nighttime teeth grinding. Our athletic mouthguards are designed to absorb impact and prevent injury while you’re participating in sports. Our thick nightguards create a barrier between your upper and lower teeth to prevent damage from teeth grinding.
