Scale and clean

Regular scaling and cleaning not only keeps your teeth looking at their best and keeps your breath fresh but also promotes healthy gums. We use special instruments to remove plaque and calculus (tartar) from those hard to reach areas and reinforce proper preventive home care techniques. These visits should be maintained at least every six months to promote periodontal (gum) health. During these visits the dentist also performs an exam of the entire mouth to insure that oral health is properly maintained.
A major weapon in prevention of gum disease. This condition progresses as the pocket between the tooth and gums gets irritated by plaque, bacteria, and calculus (tartar). As this debris collects, sometimes deep in the pocket of the tooth, it becomes difficult for you to maintain proper cleaning of this area on your own.

Fissure Sealants

Our molar and premolars have a natural deep groove pattern on their chewing surfaces. These deep grooves and fissures are finer than our toothbrush bristles and therefore susceptible to buildup of sticky foods and bacteria that can form cavities. A principle component of prevention is protecting these deeply grooved teeth in the back of the mouth. Fissure sealants act as a hard barrier, effectively protecting the teeth against decay-causing bacteria and sugar. Sealants are painlessly applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth of children where decay occurs most often.

Digital X-Rays

Dental x-rays enable dentists to diagnose many oral diseases. This technology is an essential element of proper diagnosis, and used in very small doses, is a safe yet invaluable tool to provide proper dental care. The newest radiography available uses digital technology to capture a very precise high definition image while subjecting the patient to a minimal dose of radiation.

Flouride Treatments

A powerful weapon against tooth decay. Used as a topical agent, fluoride actually has the ability to re-mineralize areas of teeth that have begun to decay, and halt further progression of disease. Fluoride is present in toothpaste and water supplies. It can be applied in higher dosages in varnish and gels by a dental professional.

Mouth Guards

Sports mouth guards that are custom fitted to the teeth prevent trauma to the teeth during athletic activity. Custom made mouth guards from a dentist not only provide the most protection to the teeth and jaws but also have a better ability to remain in place, making it easier for the athlete to breathe and speak during athletic activity.

Night Guards

An custom made acrylic appliance used to protect teeth from abnormal wear due to nocturnal clenching and grinding (bruxism). At Domain Dental we assess you for evidence to grinding then if necessary, construct a well fitting yet comfortable guard. This is an invaluable treatment to protect precious tooth enamel.
