At Smile Source North Side, preventive dental care can include a variety of services, including:

Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)

Regular dental exams and cleanings are critical for maintaining healthy teeth and preventing oral health issues. At Smile Source North Side, our preventive teeth cleanings involve removing tartar buildup and identifying and addressing any potential oral health concerns. Our dental hygienist will clean the teeth before our dentist conducts a gentle exam.

It is recommended to have dental exams and cleanings every six months, and pre-scheduling appointments make it easier for patients.

Strengthening Mineral Treatments

Strengthen your enamel and protect against decay with our fluoride treatments. These treatments offer an extra layer of defense for your teeth, helping to restore and fortify weakened enamel. Regular mineral treatments can reduce your risk of developing cavities and help you maintain your healthiest smile.  

Dental Sealants

Our dental sealants offer a proactive approach to cavity prevention. By applying a thin and protective coating to the grooves of your molars, we create a barrier against harmful bacteria that can lead to tooth decay. Dental sealants are a quick and painless solution that can provide long-lasting protection for your teeth, giving you peace of mind and minimizing the need for more extensive dental work in the future. 

Oral Cancer Screenings

At Smile Source North Side, we recommend oral cancer screenings to adults of all ages, especially those who smoke or use tobacco products. By detecting early signs of oral cancer, these screenings can make treatment more accessible and practical. Even if you have quit smoking, it is still essential to have annual screenings.

The process involves a dental examination, visual inspection of the mouth for lesions and abnormalities, and advanced technology like OralID, which uses fluorescence technology to aid in detecting oral cancer. Regular screenings are essential for maintaining good oral health and preventing future problems.

Nightguards For TMJ Pain

Do you experience teeth grinding (bruxism) while you sleep? Bruxism can cause headaches, TMJ issues, and damage to your bite. Our dentists offer custom-made night guards to correct this problem and protect your teeth. We also help those with bite-related headaches by providing special orthotics and advanced treatments to improve bite function and alleviate headaches.

Mouthguards For Athletics

Protect your smile during sports activities with Smile Source's custom-made athletic mouthguards. These guards offer superior teeth protection and reduce the risk of concussions. Each mouthguard is customized to fit your mouth perfectly, ensuring maximum comfort and safety on the field or court.
