Our treatment goal at Dennis Bradshaw Dentistry is to assist you in maintaining the kind of oral hygiene that promotes healthy teeth and gums - the best insurance for a lifetime of good health.
Dental Cleanings, Exams and X-Rays
Checkups are recommended every 6 months for a healthy mouth, and every 3-4 months for those with periodontal disease. Examinations should occur at least once a year, depending on your past history of cavities. X-rays should be taken between every 6 months to 3 years depending on your past history of restorations and how regularly you visit the dentist for exams.
Bruxism & Mouthguards
Bruxism (teeth grinding) can cause long-term damage to teeth, from moderate to severe. Constant grinding wears down the surface of the tooth, exposing the soft dentin beneath the enamel.
Gum disease occurs when plaque builds up below the gum line and starts to pull the gums away from the roots of the teeth. It has been linked to diabetes and heart disease.
Oral Cancer Screening
Regular visits to your dentist can improve the chances that any suspicious changes in your oral health will be caught early, at a time when cancer can be treated more easily.
Dental sealants are tooth colored and made from polymer or glass ionomers and bond to the deep grooves in the back teeth (molars) to prevent decay.
