General & Preventive Dentistry
Find Your Healthy Smile
Your mouth is unique. Don’t settle for a generic treatment plan. At Stuart Dental, we value your individuality, which is why we tailor our treatment just for you. We treat each patient on a case-by-case basis, and only recommend the treatment you really need.
We perform comprehensive exams that allow us to diagnose and monitor your oral health. We don’t leave out any details, as we focus on more than just your teeth. We take a history of your oral health, a bite evaluation, screen for oral cancer, and in some cases, even provide a consultation for dental implants. We then create a customized treatment plan that’s just right for you.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Early detection of oral cancer can be lifesaving. While there are risk factors, like tobacco and alcohol use, that increase the likelihood of developing oral cancer, those who refrain from these activities can still develop the disease. So we use visual and manual screening methods to search for any abnormal oral tissue, as well as reviewing your lifestyle and risk factors.
Our x-rays are the key to what’s really going on inside your mouth. Digital technology provides high resolution images that allow our team to identify any issues that need to be addressed in your mouth. In some cases, we may use panoramic x-rays for diagnostic purposes.
A clean mouth is a happy mouth. Our hygienists professionally deep clean your mouth using Cavitron scalers that use sound waves and thousands of rotations per minute. After removing plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth and gum line, your mouth will look and feel better than ever. We are committed to helping you form great oral hygiene habits that lead to a lifetime of great smiles.
Gum Disease Therapy
Your smile isn’t just about your teeth. Your gums play an important role in your overall dental health. We believe that preventing gum disease is crucial, and seek to eliminate plaque buildup at the gum line. Periodontal disease can lead to adult tooth loss if left untreated, which is why managing each case of gum disease is important. We’ll create a special treatment plan to tackle your gum disease and restore your mouth to its healthy state.
As our teeth develop, they need essential nutrients and minerals to stay strong and protect them from decay. We offer fluoride treatments to children under age 16 at every visit.
Maybe you already know how painful the symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) can be. If so, we may be able to help! We’ll evaluate your jaw function using bioesthetic dentistry, and diagnose current issues associated with TMJ. Our customized occlusal guards take stress off your jaw joint, and reduce clenching of the muscles, therefore alleviating some of your discomfort.
Nighttime grinders can find relief from bruxism with our custom-fitted mouthguards. These mouthguards prevent grinding while you sleep, which eliminates excessive wear to your teeth. Because they are made just for you, they are comfortable and easy to use. It’s recommended that children who play sports wear mouthguards to protect their teeth. Let us help you protect your smile.
Stuart Dental understands that emergencies always happen when it’s least convenient. We’ll make every effort to see you as soon as possible, as your comfort is our top priority. We’ll help you get back to your regularly scheduled day quickly, and we’ll eliminate your pain.
