Dental Checkups & Cleanings
Your home hygiene routine is a critical component of your smile's continued health. Brushing, flossing, and using an ADA-approved mouthwash every day reduces your risk of developing a variety of oral health issues, including tooth decay and gum disease. Biannual checkups at Countryside Dental, however, are even more important. It is during these general dental visits that our hygiene team meticulously cleans every surface of your teeth and gums, carefully clearing away any plaque or tartar that may have accumulated in hard-to-reach places. Dr. Natayla Nagornaya will then examine your mouth and teeth thoroughly. You'll leave our office feeling refreshed and confident in the health of your smile.
Gum Disease Treatment
Did you know that the health of your gums greatly impacts your overall health as well? Periodontal disease affects up to 85% of American adults, making it one of the most prevalent health conditions in the country. Keeping your gums healthy as you age substantially diminishes your risk of developing related health conditions, including heart disease, stroke, pancreatic cancer, and respiratory illnesses, among others. With routine care as well as scaling and root planing, our team can return your gums to health and comfort.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Do you find yourself waking up in the morning with a sore jaw or sensitive teeth? Not sure why your teeth look flatter than usual? It’s possible that you have an undiagnosed teeth grinding problem that’s putting your teeth and jaw joints at risk. To counter this, our office can design a custom-made nightguard. Since teeth grinding and clenching (also known as bruxism) occurs most often during sleep, we recommend our patients to wear their oral appliance then.
As a parent, you do everything you can to keep your child safe, happy, and healthy. Ensure that your little one receives gentle, personalized dental care with Dr. Nagornaya and our experienced team. We offer a broad range of pediatric dentistry services, including routine exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants, dental fillings, and more. We'll always take the time to get to know your son or daughter, setting the stage for a future of excellent oral health.
At-Home Dental Hygiene Products
Choosing the right toothbrush, toothpaste, and oral rinse can be difficult at first. Considering there are so many products out there, how are you supposed to know which option is best for you? Dr. Nagornaya is happy to recommend a variety of dental products she believes are best for protecting oral health. We follow recommendations from the ADA, which suggests Sensodyne, to those with sensitive teeth.
