Why Choose Sommers Family Dental for Preventive Dentistry?

Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

No matter someone’s age or dental needs, they should attend at least two dental checkups and teeth cleanings each year. Our hygienists can remove hardened plaque deposits from teeth called tartar that your tools at home can’t, which can stop decay and infections before they even start. Also at these appointments, Dr. Malecki or Dr. Sommers will give you a complete oral exam so any problems can be caught and treated as early as possible.

Oral Cancer Screening

Early detection and treatment is the best way to beat oral cancer, so we’ll always take a few minutes during your regular checkups to search for any suspicious growths or sores in your mouth. If we find anything, we can refer you to a doctor to get a proper diagnosis. That way, if any additional treatment is needed, it can be started without delay, maximizing your chances of a fast recovery.

Nightguards for Bruxism

Many people haven’t heard the word “bruxism” before, but they are more than familiar with its symptoms: a sore jaw, headaches, and teeth that frequently chip and look worn down. It’s the official name for teeth grinding that occurs while someone is asleep, and left untreated, it can cause extensive damage to the mouth. Fortunately, we can stop this condition using a simple nightguard. These oral appliances are only worn to bed and fit over the teeth to keep them separated, ensuring there is no harmful contact while someone slumbers.
