Your visit to Bolt Family Dental starts with a comprehensive exam. Our dentists are thorough, with attention-to-detail that surpasses your expectations. We’ll take a full set of digital x-rays, complete an oral cancer screening, and periodontal charting. We’ll also discuss your goals, and formulate a customized treatment plan that’s right for you.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Early detection of oral cancer can save your life. We use visual and manual screening methods to check for abnormal tissue in your cheeks, tongue and other soft tissue. Lifestyle factors, such as alcohol and tobacco use, can increase your risk of developing oral cancer, however, anyone can be diagnosed. That’s why it’s especially important to get screened, especially if you’re over age 40.
To accurately diagnose and treat dental issues, we need to see what’s going on under the surface of your teeth. Our digital x-rays produce high-resolution quality images with detail. We also have panoramic digital x-rays which show the full scope of your mouth, so we can evaluate how your jaw sits and the relation of your teeth to one another. Digital x-rays are safer and quick, exposing you to significantly less radiation than traditional films, and can easily be shared by a simple computer file.
A sparkling, vibrant smile starts with a professional cleaning from our hygienists. We use Cavitron magnetostrictive scalers to remove debris from hard to reach places that brushing and flossing may miss. We’ll discuss your current oral hygiene routine and recommend ways to keep your smile looking great. We’ll evaluate your gums and ensure we remove all plaque bacteria before it hardens into tartar. Keeping your mouth clean and healthy is our goal, and we’re happy to deliver a brilliant, dazzling smile to all our patients.
Healthy gums are essential to a brilliant smile. We offer periodontal care that ensures your gums are the best they can be and helps reverse the signs of gum disease. If your gums are receding, swollen, bleeding or red, you’ll benefit from scaling and root planing treatments. For those with moderate gum disease, which is a leading cause of tooth loss in adults, we’ll use local antimicrobial therapies to kill the bacteria that causes plaque and tartar. Keep your gums looking and feeling great, so your smile stays healthy.
Fluoride is an important mineral for your teeth, as it keeps your enamel healthy. Children’s developing teeth need fluoride to help grow into healthy adult smiles, that’s why we offer fluoride treatments to kids at every visit. Adults who suffer from tooth sensitivities, such as changing temperatures, can also benefit from fluoride treatments, as it restores depleted minerals and adds a barrier against common sensitivities. Ask us if fluoride is right for you.
You’ve got a beautiful smile – time to keep it protected! If you suffer from nighttime grinding, known as bruxism, we’ll fit you for a customized nightguard, which you’ll wear while you sleep. Our night guards are comfortable and easy to wear and eliminate excess wear on your enamel from grinding. We also offer sports mouthguards for active children, as protecting their developing smiles is just as important. If your child is a budding athlete, ask us about our available mouthguards, so they can have a lasting, healthy smile.
Don’t worry about discomfort. No matter what procedure you’re having done, you don’t have to be nervous. We use local anesthesia to numb the area, ensuring that you don’t feel a thing. If you have a fear of needles or need a longer procedure, we also offer nitrous oxide, an inhaled gas, to calm and eliminate discomfort. Nitrous oxide is a safe, easily-controlled option, and the effects of the gas wear off quickly after the supply is stopped.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Do you wake up feeling tired, groggy, or like you didn’t get any rest at all? You may be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs when your muscles relax, blocking your airway. Many people suffer from sleep apnea and don’t even know it, but snoring is a common symptom. Dr. Angie DeHaven can evaluate your case and treat sleep apnea caused by airway obstruction. Ask for a consultation today and get the restful night’s sleep you deserve.
If you planned for a dental emergency, it wouldn’t be an emergency. We know our patients aren’t always prepared for something to go wrong with your teeth, however, we are. When a dental emergency occurs, we’ll strive to get you seen the very same day and get you back to your daily routine with as little interruption as possible. You may not have planned for a dental emergency, but Bolt Family Dental has you covered.
