Why Choose Taylor Choice Dental for Preventive Dentistry?

Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

Far too many people believe they don’t need to visit a dentist until their mouth is in pain. Often, though, oral health problems like tooth decay and gum disease develop without your even noticing. At your regular checkups, our dentists can catch these issues and address them long before they cause discomfort. We can also give your teeth a thorough cleaning to remove plaque and tartar that has built up in places that you can’t clean with your toothbrush at home.


Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a vital mineral that works to prevent cavities by strengthening the tooth enamel, making them more resistant to plaque acids. While you already ingest fluoride through certain foods, most public water supplies, and likely your toothpaste, our team can also provide topical fluoride gels to your teeth after we’re finished with your professional cleaning. It only takes a few minutes to complete these treatments, and they can go a long way toward minimizing decay until your next checkup.


Nightguards for Bruxism

Do you frequently start your mornings with a sore jaw or a headache? You might be clenching and grinding your teeth while you’re asleep. This condition, called bruxism, can wear down and weaken your teeth over time, but because it occurs when you’re unconscious, there’s no way to stop it directly. We can, fortunately, protect your teeth from additional damage by giving you a custom nightguard. This smooth, thin tray provides a comfortable barrier between your upper and lower arches of teeth.


Oral Cancer Screenings

Because oral cancer often remains undiagnosed until the later stages, it has a higher mortality rate than many other forms of cancer. Our dentists perform detailed oral cancer screenings as part of your routine exams. If we detect any abnormalities in the tissues in your mouth or throat, we can arrange for you to obtain an official diagnosis and treatment from the appropriate professional. In this way, a regular dental checkup could end up saving your life!
