We also use top dental technologies to make each appointment comfortable and effective.
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
During your preventive dental exam, your dentist will perform a thorough cleaning. First, Dr. Bhullar will check for plaque on the teeth and tartar near the gum line, as these are often the causes of dental problems such as receding gums, cavities, and misaligned teeth. Then, your dentist will perform a gentle cleaning and scaling, to banish bacteria that can cause oral infection and disease.
At Napa Valley Dental Group, we recommend our patients make preventive care appointments at least twice a year to ensure the teeth and gums are thoroughly cleaned — including the spots near the gum line that are harder to reach at home!
Custom Mouth Guards for Athletics and TMJ
Our Napa Valley dental team crafts both custom athletic mouth guards and night guards for TMJ pain.
Dental injuries often happen due to accidents or when engaging in contact sports. To help you or your child avoid dental injury, our team crafts custom-fitted athletic mouth guards to protect the smile against sports-related injuries and concussions.
Do you or your child suffer from bruxism, or grinding the teeth at night? Our dentists may recommend the use of a custom mouth guard to be worn at night to avoid the jaw dysfunction, bite misalignment and tooth damage that can occur as a result of bruxism. Our special orthotics can even help keep TMJ and bite-related headaches at bay!
Desensitizing Treatments For Sensitive Teeth
If your teeth are sensitive to hot and cold, you may feel like you have to avoid foods and drinks you would typically enjoy. Fortunately, our team has a solution — our dentists will first assess the cause of your sensitive teeth, then address it with custom desensitizing treatments designed to keep your symptoms at bay for months!
Oral Cancer Screenings
At each preventive dental visit, your neck, palate, and throat will also be inspected to check for signs of of unusual growth, which could signify a condition such as cancer. Our dentist will also perform a gentle examination of the tongue, for unusual patches that could indicate signs of oral disease.
