Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)

new-patient-forms-2024 Regular dental exams and cleanings are critical for maintaining healthy teeth for life. At Smile Source South Hill, our preventive teeth cleanings involve removing tartar buildup and identifying and addressing any potential oral health concerns.

Your dental hygienist will thoroughly clean the teeth before our dentist conducts a thorough oral health exam. Our dentists recommended to have dental exams and cleanings every six months. We're always here to help you pre-schedule your preventive care visits to make it easier to maintain your healthy smile! 

Strengthening Mineral Treatments

Our team will help you strengthen your enamel and protect against decay with preventive fluoride treatments. These treatments offer an extra layer of defense for your teeth, helping to restore and fortify weakened enamel. Regular mineral treatments can help your teeth remain strong against cavities and decay.  

Dental Sealants

At Smile Source, dental sealants offer a proactive approach to cavity prevention. By applying a thin, 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, painless solution that can provide long-lasting protection for your teeth. 

Oral Cancer Screenings

At Smile Source South Hill, 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

Our occlusal bruxism nightguards are durable, custom-crafted and can easily withstand teeth grinding, ensuring you sleep soundly while your teeth stay protected. Because bruxism can lead to headaches, TMJ issues, and uneven teeth, our dentists often recommend a nightguard to keep the effects of tooth grinding at bay. 

Mouthguards For Athletics

If you're into sports, a custom-fitted athletic mouthguard is a must-have. Crafted from a softer material, sports mouthguards provide comprehensive coverage, designed to safeguarding your teeth and gums. Thanks to their snug fit, they allow athletes to communicate freely, ensuring optimal protection on the field.

Preventive Care for Your Healthiest Smile

Preventive dentistry services at Smile Source Spokane are designed to benefit our patients by helping them save time and money, preserving the natural teeth, improving oral health and promoting complete, total-body wellness.

Our dentists recommend scheduling dental check-ups and cleanings at least every six months. If you have specific dental concerns, we may recommend more frequent visits. Dr. Jeff and his team will create a customized preventive dental care plan to address your unique needs!
