Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

Twice-yearly dental checkups and teeth cleanings are meant to help individuals maintain healthier smiles year-round. While brushing and flossing at home is essential, Dr. Lee and our team can use specialized instruments and solutions to perform dental maintenance and screen for possible problems that affect the teeth and gums. We’ll remove any built-up plaque and tartar as well as examine the mouth for signs of cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer.

Oral Cancer Screening

Early detection is pivotal when it comes to treating oral cancer. Affecting more than 50,000 individuals in the United States each year, its symptoms can remain hidden if you are unsure of what to look for. This is why regular screenings by our team at Orbis Dental Group are essential. Performing an oral examination, we’ll also administer an oral brush biopsy if needed, which uses a small brush that collects various cells and is tested to determine if oral cancer exists.

Dental Sealants

The pits and grooves in the chewing surfaces of teeth that exist toward the back of the mouth can harbor harmful bacteria and food particles. If they’re not properly cleaned, it can lead to dental decay. But with dental sealants, these clear plastic coverings can be applied easily during a regular checkup, creating a barrier that blocks damaging bacteria from penetrating the enamel and causing cavities to form.

Athletic Mouthguards / Sportsguards

Avid athletes of all ages can benefit from a custom-made athletic mouthguard. Unlike one-size options available in local sporting goods stores, these are designed to fit comfortably inside the mouth and deliver more confidence on the field while protecting against impacts. As a result, you can spend more time playing the game you love instead of rushing off to your emergency dentist because of a broken or knocked-out tooth.

Nightguards for Bruxism

Customized to fit correctly so that teeth do not grind against each other, the nightguards we provide serve to reduce the risk of enamel wear and tear as well as chronic jaw pain. When teeth continually grind and clench throughout the night, it can cause frequent headaches and even tooth sensitivity over time. However, with a custom nightguard, we can help to reduce the effects of bruxism and instead, allow your smile to remain intact and damage-free moving forward.
