Preventive Dentistry Port Orange

Prevent Oral Health Problems and Keep Your Smile Safe Your first appointment with us will consist of a comprehensive visual exam.

During this time, we’ll carefully and thoroughly inspect your teeth and gums for any signs of potential problems, including decay, structural damage, and inflammation. We’ll also take a full set of dental X-rays so that we can gather even more precise information. Once we’re familiar with your condition, we can create a plan of dental services that you will need to receive in order to return your smile to full health. As another part of your routine care, one of our hygienists will provide a thorough cleaning that will help prevent cavities, gingivitis, and other common oral health problems from forming, while also leaving your mouth feeling fresh and clean.

Dental Checkups & Cleanings

Our team here at Water’s Edge Dental recommends that you and your loved ones visit us at least twice every year for routine preventive care, which includes a comprehensive checkup and thorough dental cleaning. These appointments are perhaps the best way to ensure that your smile is healthy and beautiful not just at the present moment, but also in the future, even if you’re maintaining excellent oral hygiene at home.

Nightguards for Bruxism

Bruxism (more commonly referred to as teeth grinding) is a common oral health problem that can cause worn-down teeth, jaw pain, and other unpleasant symptoms. What’s worse is that many patients don’t even realize they have it! Most cases of bruxism only occur when a person is sleeping and unaware of the damage they’re doing to their smile. Here in Port Orange, our team will keep an eye out for tell-tale signs and provide a custom-made nightguard when needed, which can protect both rows of teeth from harmful contact and help you rest easy.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer screenings are an essential part of all our checkups, and for good reason. Tens of thousands of new cases are being discovered every year, with only roughly half of these patients surviving more than five years past their diagnosis. Oral cancer caught at very early stages, however, has a high rate of recovery. Our team takes this responsibility seriously, and we’ll be sure to let you know if we discover any strange lumps, suspicious sores, or discolored spots in your mouth that may be caused by cancerous/pre-cancerous cells.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a mineral that can be found in countless oral hygiene products, as well as the water that most likely comes out of your faucets at home. This is because research has shown that the presence of fluoride attracts other fortifying minerals to tooth enamel, remineralizing weakened areas and strengthening the enamel over time. Our team can provide professional applications during checkups for patients in need. While we mostly recommend this service to children, adults who are prone to tooth decay may also benefit from it.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Every night, millions of people worldwide miss out on countless hours of sleep due to sleep apnea. This condition might seem relatively harmless, but the significant health impact of it cannot be ignored. Our team here in Port Orange can assist you not just with identifying this debilitating condition, but also with managing your symptoms so that you’re able to achieve optimal rest and fewer health risks.
