In addition to comfortable meticulous office cleaning and polishing of your teeth, we will help our patients develop good oral hygiene home care habits. We will evaluate your hygiene techniques and make suggestions as necessary.
If needed, we would look at additional preventative measures. For example, the home use of a prescription fluoride or MI Paste Plus might be encouraged. Office treatments such as white fluoride varnish or clear dental sealants may be recommended.
When there are signs of bruxism (clenching or grinding of the teeth) then different types of guards to protect against excessive wear and fracturing of your teeth would be discussed.
