Dental Checkups & Cleanings
Other than your daily at-home oral hygiene routine, dental checkups and cleanings are the most effective way to ensure long-term oral health. During this visit, we’ll remove calcified plaque, preventing bacteria from causing decay or gum disease in the first place. We also teach you proper flossing and brushing techniques, and Dr. Parmar examines your mouth looking for signs of trouble. By catching problems early on, we can help you avoid physically and financially painful situations in the future.
At Archway Dental, we believe that lifelong oral health should start as early as possible, and you shouldn’t have to go to a different dentist to provide your child with high-quality dental care. Dr. Parmar loves children and enjoys the opportunity to help growing smiles stay strong and bright. We’ll do everything we can to give your child positive memories of the dentist and teach them the skills they’ll need to care for their precious smile.
Oral Cancer Screening
Out of the approximately 53,000 people who are anticipated to be diagnosed with oral cancer this year, only about half of them are likely to survive to the five-year mark. Many times it is caught too late, but when it is discovered early, the chances of survival dramatically improve. That’s why we perform a quick, painless oral cancer screening at every dental checkup. We’ve been trained to recognize abnormal, potentially cancerous cells, and we can facilitate an early diagnosis, which can lead to more effective treatment.
Found in many foods and the public drinking water, fluoride is a mineral that naturally strengthens tooth enamel, which is irreplaceable. After we remove accumulated plaque and tartar from your teeth, we can give your enamel an extra boost with a concentrated fluoride treatment. This treatment only takes a couple of minutes, and it is a simple way to help protect your teeth from cavities until your next checkup appointment.
Nightguards for Bruxism
If you wake up in the morning with jaw pain or headaches, you may grind or clench your teeth while you sleep. This condition is called bruxism, and it can cause your teeth to wear down, feel sensitive to extreme temperatures, or even break more easily. Dr. Parmar can provide a custom oral appliance that separates the upper and lower teeth, preserving more of your enamel and stretching out the lifespan of your natural smile.
