Preventative Dental Care keeps you and your family’s smile healthy.
Twice per year, we recommend a through teeth cleaning, exam and X-rays for each member of your family. Its important to not only keep your mouth clean but to also keep a good eye on how your teeth and gums are doing. Check-ups help us catch issues before they become serious issues and/or a dental emergency.
Regularly scheduled examinations and cleanings will give you the maximum opportunity for long-term dental care.
Professional Dental Hygiene
Regularly scheduled visits to Dreamy Draw Dental are an essential part of your dental health, preventing gum disease and keeping your smile healthy and bright! Dental plaque and calculus can be removed through daily brushing and flossing, but there are places in your mouth that you cannot reach with a toothbrush and dental floss. A professional cleaning by one of our registered dental hygienists will ensure the very best removal of calculus in those hard-to-reach places.
At-Home Dental Hygiene
Part of our philosophy at Dreamy Draw Dental is to equip our patients with the best tools and techniques for maintaining a healthy mouth through at-home dental care. The Dreamy Draw Dental team will guide you in all features of at-home dental hygiene, including proper brushing and flossing techniques for optimal dental health.
Dr. Menghini may decide that fluoride should be part of your overall dental care treatment. Fluoride treatments re-mineralize teeth, stop developing cavities and make your teeth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque, bacteria, and sugars in the mouth.
While brushing and flossing regularly is a great way to keep teeth clean and free from plaque, there are grooves in some teeth that cannot be reach through conventional methods. Food particles and plaque collect in these grooves, increasing the chance of decay.
Tooth sealants can be applied at Dreamy Draw Dental quickly and easily, protecting tooth enamel from plaque and resulting decay in just one visit. Sealants take only a few minutes to apply and wear well over several years before reapplication is required.
Periodontal Disease & Scaling and Root Planing
Periodontal disease, also known as periodontitis and gum disease, is the result of infection and irritation caused by bacteria found in plaque. Symptoms include red and swollen gum tissue that bleeds easily, causing gum tissue to separate from the teeth and form pockets of decay. Eventually, this condition results in the deterioration of gum tissue and jawbone, leading to tooth loss.
Dr. Menghini and his staff at Dreamy Draw Dental provide scaling and root planing, which is a common treatment for periodontal disease. This method allows Dr. Menghini and a registered dental hygienist to provide a deeper cleaning between the compromised teeth and gums, preventing progression of the disease.
Treatment for Teeth Grinding and Headache
Dr. Menghini and his staff at Dreamy Draw Dental provide state-of-the-art treatment for the treatment of chronic headaches and symptoms caused by teeth grinding (also known as bruxism).
If you deal with the effects of teeth grinding or clenching of the jaw, Dr. Menghini and the staff at Dreamy Draw Dental can provide preventative treatment through customized mouth guards using the NTI Tension Suppression System. This treatment offers non-invasive, individualized treatment to relieve pain and pressure caused by bruxism.
