Preventive Dentistry Worcester

Keeping Your Smile Safe & Healthy

Good oral health is crucial to your quality of life. It lets you avoid many nasty problems that cost you time, money, and energy! Still, you can’t get healthy teeth and gums by just brushing and flossing. You’ll also need regular dental care from a trusted source. Luckily, the preventive dentistry here in Worcester is great and can protect your grin. We at Burncoat Family Dental will vouch for that fact.

Dental Checkups & Cleanings

To preserve oral health, you should attend dental checkups and cleanings every six months or so. These visits give us a chance to look over your smile. When doing so, we’ll use 3D X-rays and intraoral cameras to find any potential problems. (Such issues can include cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, etc.) Should we notice any signs, we’ll develop a treatment plan suited for you. The appointment will then end with a thorough cleaning and polishing of your grin.

Children’s Dentistry

Our practice lacks a pediatric dentist, but we’ll gladly treat your kids. Burncoat Family Dental is versed in what's known as family dentistry. Thus, we're equipped to see patients of all ages - from toddlers to senior citizens. Our dental team will quickly help your child with teeth cleaning, cavities, and more. Plus, all of our staff are warm and welcoming. Your youngster’s time with us will be safe, effective, and fun.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride treatment is a service added to a dental checkup. At the end of the visit, we can apply a fluoridated gel or foam to your teeth. The process only takes five minutes, strengthens your tooth enamel, and reduces the risk of decay. You can then enjoy its effects, as it protects your teeth in between appointments. Best of all, the treatment is safe - we tailor the amount of fluoride and don't apply excessive amounts.

Dental Sealants

Our office suggests dental sealants for patients prone to tooth decay. Put simply, this treatment applies resin coatings to your back teeth. The coatings are then hardened to protect your enamel from bad bacteria. As a result, they’ll make you or your child less likely to get cavities. The sealants will also blend seamlessly due to their tooth-colored material. With good care, such effects tend to last for four to eight years.

Athletic Mouthguards / Sportsguards

Do you or any family members like to play sports? If your answer is “yes,” try to be careful – these pastimes cause dental injuries easily. A fall or player collision can give you a chipped, cracked, or knocked-out tooth. Fortunately, our athletic mouthguards are a great solution to this risk. Wearing one over your upper teeth protects your grin from forceful blows. To that extent, it will let you play without putting your smile in danger.

Nightguards for Bruxism

Like many, perhaps you grind your teeth at night. This habit – also known as bruxism – slowly wears down your enamel and harms your oral health. However, you can solve the problem with one of our nightguards. The device sets a hard plastic barrier between the upper and lower teeth. So, wearing it at night will protect your grin from further damage. You could go to sleep soundly while knowing your smile is safe.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep apnea involves the mouth’s tissues, so our practice knows how it works. We can easily treat the problem with oral appliance therapy. This option lets you wear a custom oral device that opens your airway while you sleep. That way, it greatly reduces your apnea symptoms - snoring, tiredness, etc. The service is also ideal for patients unable to use a CPAP machine. Of course, you’ll need a consultation as part of the treatment. Our dental team needs your details to craft the oral device.
