LifeTime Smiles also provides support to your personal dental care at home. A regular visit to the dentist, even without any noticeable pain, helps patients prevent tooth decay and gum diseases.
General services available at LifeTime Smiles include: Snore Guards, fluoride treatment, TMD therapy, gum disease prevention, VELscope oral cancer screening, and dental sealants.
Fluoride treatment helps teeth absorb more fluoride, which in turn helps to avoid tooth decay that can cause tooth loss when ignored. We offer fluoride treatment to both children and adults. Most often, children get this treatment early on while their teeth are still developing.
Oral appliances for Grinding (Night Guards)
Many people clench or grind their teeth to the point of erosion, yet they are completely unaware of it, because they grind during the night while they are asleep. Night Guards are individually designed and made for each patients based on their dental needs. Due to the use of the durable material and because of the expertise of the dentist and of the dental laboratory, this custom-made night guard provides the best comfort and protection in the market.
Gum disease prevention
Gum disease can range from simple gum inflammation to a serious disease that results in damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. Fifty percent of Americans suffer from gum diseases and the World Health Organization has stated that severe gum disease is found in 15 to 20 percent of adults aged 35 to 44. If gum disease goes untreated, it can lead to: persistent bad breath, red, swollen, tender, and bleeding gums, painful chewing, and eventual tooth loss.
VELscope oral cancer screening
Recent studies show that the risk factors to acquire oral cancer have increased to include the Human Papillomavirus Virus (HPV), a virus that may be obtained from unsafe oral sexual practices. In addition to smoking, alcoholism, and a history of cancer, HPV can be a risk factor for many types of oral cancer.
Fortunately, LifeTime Smiles focuses on disease and cancer prevention by using a technology called VELscope; which detects possible cases early in treatment, to allow the patient further evaluation and assessment. This award-winning oral assessment system uses a device that tracks viral infections, inflammation, tumors and other oral conditions. When oral cancer is discovered early, survival rate among patients is at 83 percent.
Dental sealants are a preventative treatment for children. The dentist applies sealants to the teeth that have deep grooves and fissures, creating a smooth surface that covers the fissured area, particularly around the premolars and molars. This treatment protects children’s teeth from allowing further decay to occur around the teeth.
The practice also serves as an emergency dentist Burke residents trust. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort, please call our office, and we can see you the same day during normal business hours.
