Preventive Dentistry – Fayetteville, AR
Creating a Foundation for Positive Dental Health
At DMC Dental, we take preventive dental care seriously. You might even say that preventive dentistry is the foundation of everything we do. With every patient, our goal is to diagnose dental issues as early as possible, before they have time to develop into more serious problems. This ensures that your smile remains healthy and strong.
Our preventive dental services include:
Dental Checkups & Cleanings
Create and maintain a healthy smile through routine checkups and cleanings at DMC Dental. Your dentist in Fayetteville & Johnson will not only take the time to review your dental and medical history, but he will check for any problems that may be in their early stages. Additionally, our skilled dental hygienists will clean your teeth, leaving your mouth feeling clean and refreshed by the time you walk out the door. For optimal oral health, we advise that you visit our office every six months.
Dental sealants are designed to help patients protect their teeth from harmful bacteria and tooth decay. Oftentimes, this service is offered to children because they’re still learning how to properly brush and clean their teeth. However, as an adult, you can benefit from this form of preventive treatment, too. This is especially true if you’re prone to developing cavities. They’re applied as a liquid and then hardened to form a thin layer of protective plastic.
TMJ Dysfunction and Bruxism
Do you struggle with teeth grinding or frequent headaches? Let us talk to you about the symptoms of bruxism and TMJ dysfunction. These painful and destructive conditions can wreak havoc on your jaw and teeth, making it difficult to eat, chew, or even speak. You may even feel pain from your head to your ears, to the back of your neck and shoulders. Luckily, we offer effective care with oral appliances.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer claims one life every hour of every day. With that in mind, we’re committed to offering oral cancer screenings to all of our Fayetteville patients. Early detection is vitally important when looking for signs of this disease. The procedure is quick and painless, and you may not even realize it’s happening. It’s important to let our dentists check your mouth, neck, jaw, and throat for any signs that could be connected to oral cancer. An early diagnosis means a greater chance for successful treatment.
