& Teeth Cleanings
The American Dental Association recommends scheduling twice-a-year checkups and cleanings with your dentist to keep your teeth and gums healthy. During these appointments, Dr. Saleh and one of our skilled dental hygienists will take X-rays of your mouth and conduct a detailed examination. Before you leave, they'll thoroughly clear away all plaque and tartar from your teeth and polish them so your smile feels refreshed and healthy.
An estimated 31 percent of the population has a condition called bruxism, which is unconscious teeth grinding and clenching that occurs during sleep. Not only can this leave your jaw sore and filled with tension, but it can also ruin your teeth by putting them at an increased risk of becoming damaged and worn-down. To protect your teeth and jaw joints, we offer customized nightguards that are made from a durable, cushioning acrylic material.
Fluoride is a mineral that’s found in water, air, and even some fresh fruits and vegetables! Cities also often add it to local water sources because it has been shown to reduce the risk of cavity development. If you aren’t receiving enough of this enamel-strengthening mineral in your daily diet, we may recommend fluoride treatments when you visit so you can keep your teeth free of decay.
Oral Cancer Screenings
At each of your checkups and cleanings, we'll conduct a thorough oral cancer screening in search of any signs of this disease. We'll use our VELscope Enhanced Oral Assessment System to make sure that no symptom goes unnoticed. It’s a handheld device that contains a special fluorescent light that we’ll shine into your mouth to highlight any potentially-cancerous areas of oral tissue, particularly those that would normally be hidden from the naked eye.
Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings for Kids
As soon as your child’s first tooth grows in, they’ll need to start visiting the dentist to make sure that their smile is developing correctly. At Brecksville Dental Excellence, our team is happy to conduct educational, enjoyable, and fun checkups and cleanings for your children every six months. We’ll clean their teeth of any plaque and tartar and take care of any potential issues as quickly as possible.
