Routine Exams & Cleaning

Preventative dental services save you time, money, and stress in the long run. At Escalon Dental & Orthodontics, your optimum oral health is our top priority, and regular preventive dental visits allow problems to be identified early when they can be fixed easily and painlessly, with minimal intervention. Our professional cleanings and assessments enable us to remain abreast of your oral health status and provide you with guidance on how to maintain healthy teeth and gums. In addition, routine exams and cleanings help give you confidence and reduce the worry and stress of potential problems you may encounter.

Periodontal Treatments

Improving the health of the mouth’s supporting bone and gums (called peridontium) greatly helps maintain teeth that look and feel great for a lifetime. Without proper periodontal health, teeth can eventually become loose as they lose their “support.” Our goal is to prevent these problems from occurring through appropriate procedures, including carefully removing plaque and tartar from deep periodontal pockets and other measures. Our professional dental team specializes in these periodontal therapy procedures to prevent the loss of your natural teeth and improve youth mouth’s health.

Sealants

Sealants are used to successfully fill narrow grooves in a tooth that cannot be adequately cleaned by routine brushing and flossing. To avoid cavities from developing over time, the dentist will brush on a coating that seals the grooves and pits, making it possible to brush off all the plaque and keep your teeth healthy.

Mouth Guards and Night Guards

Escalon Dental & Orthodontics creates comfortable, custom-designed mouth guards and night guards made of flexible plastic and molded to fit your tooth’s natural contour. Mouth guards are recommended to protect the jaw, teeth and oral soft tissues during physical activity and sports. Night guards are recommended to protect their teeth and bite for patients who clench or grind their teeth at night.

Digital X-rays

To further protect our patients, Escalon Dental & Orthodontics utilizes the latest technology, including digital x-rays which reduce exposure levels by up to 90% by using digital imaging instead of film. Digital x-rays are sent directly to a computer, reducing wait time and offering easy access for enhanced on-screen viewing by you and your dentist.
