Professional Dental Cleanings

Coming in twice a year for dental exams will build a strong foundation for your overall dental health. Routine cleanings and exams allow us to catch potential issues early, potentially saving you a lot of pain and expense later on. During your dental exam our skilled team will also be able to remove the plaque and tartar that regular brushing can’t.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral Cancer can be devastating if it’s allowed to spread unchecked. If caught early however, it can be treated safely and simply. As part of your regular exams, our team can examine your tongue, gums, cheeks, and throat for any early warning signs. If anything’s detected we can help you begin treatment right away.

Dental Sealants

Every day, your teeth are exposed to foods, drinks, and other substances that can cause plaque buildup and gradual tooth decay. Brushing can help, but some teeth are harder to consistently reach. Dental sealants are transparent plastic coatings that can be applied to your back teeth to serve as a barrier against bacteria.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride has long been known to help prevent cavities from forming. It’s naturally found in most water sources, but we can provide a concentrated topical fluoride treatment that will boost your cavity-fighting ability. It’s a quick, painless procedure and can also easily be incorporated into your regular dental checkup.

Athletic Mouthguards

Sports can naturally increase the risk of dental injuries, so it’s important to make use of common-sense safety measures before heading out to the court, field, or track. Protective mouthguards will help to prevent cracked and chipped teeth. We can make custom mouthguards specially-designed to fit you.

Nightguards for Bruxism

You might not be immediately aware if you’re suffering from Bruxism. Many people have a tendency to clench and grind their teeth at night while they sleep. It can cause symptoms like headaches and jaw soreness, and over time it can wear down your teeth. If you think you may be grinding your teeth while you sleep, Steutzer Family Dentistry offers custom nightguards that can comfortably put a stop to it.
