At our practice, we believe that prevention is the key to maintaining good oral health. That’s why we offer a range of preventive services designed to help you keep your teeth and gums in top condition. Whether you need a routine checkup and cleaning or more advanced care for a specific condition, we’re here to help.

Checkups and Cleanings

Regular checkups and cleanings are the true foundation of good oral health. 

During your visit, we’ll examine your teeth and gums for any signs of decay, infection, or other issues. We’ll also remove any plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth, which can cause cavities and gum disease if left untreated.

Ultrasonic Scaling and Root Planing

Gum disease is an inflammatory condition that can rapidly destroy gum tissue and lead to tooth loss. If you have gum disease, we may recommend ultrasonic scaling and root planing. 

This non-surgical procedure involves using an ultrasonic scaler to remove plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth and tooth roots. We also smooth out any rough areas on your tooth roots to help your gums reattach to your teeth, avoid further damage, and prevent future plaque buildup.

Bruxism Appliances

If you grind your teeth at night (a condition called bruxism), we can fit you with a custom-made appliance to protect your teeth. 

These appliances fit snugly over the teeth while you sleep, which prevents your teeth from coming into contact with each other. As a result, bruxism appliances can reduce the risk of continued dental damage while also cushioning your jaw. 

We recommend dentist-made bruxism appliances, as store-bought appliances may irritate or damage oral tissues. Bespoke devices are also far more comfortable, as dentist-made appliances are made especially for your smile!

Snoring and Sleep Apnea Treatment

If you snore, we can help!

For some patients, snoring is only an occasional problem. For other patients, however, it is a nightly annoyance. It can also be a sign of sleep apnea, a serious condition that can increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, and other health issues. 

If you have obstructive sleep apnea, we can provide you with effective treatment options to help you breathe easier and get a good night’s sleep. We offer a variety of treatments, including oral appliances and lifestyle modifications. 

Powdersville Dental Associates can help you finally get the peaceful, refreshing sleep you and your loved ones deserve! We can also direct you to a trained sleep specialist to explore other options, such as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy.
