At the end of the day, Dr. Borsky and his team are focused on providing you exceptional dental care. That starts with providing you with services that prevent dental conditions before they have a chance to develop. Whether it’s removing dental plaque and tartar through detailed cleanings, teaching your child the basics of at-home oral care, or screening for oral cancer, our goal is to put proactive treatments first and foremost. Give our office a call to schedule your very first appointment!
Through routine cleanings, we can safely remove excess plaque and tartar from your tooth enamel and gum tissue. During your checkup, we’ll carefully examine your many oral structures for underlying issues, recommend treatments if needed, and inform you on the best techniques for practicing at-home oral care. By visiting us just once every six months, you can stop dental disease and keep your mouth healthy for years to come.
While fluoride is most commonly found in oral care products like toothpaste, floss, and mouth rinse, it’s also found in the foods we eat and our public drinking water. Basic fluoride treatments are designed to give teeth additional protection from cavity-causing bacteria and make enamel stronger with every application. While we generally recommend this for younger patients, adults can always benefit from fluoride as well. With regular applications, generally once a year, your tooth enamel will be stronger and better able to fight back against harmful bacteria.
If you find yourself waking up with chronic jaw pain or you notice increased sensitivity in your enamel, you may be suffering from a condition known as bruxism and not even realize it. This condition is characterized by clenching and grinding of teeth, resulting in damaged and cracked enamel and stress on the joints that connect the jaw to the skull. A custom-made nightguard from our office can make all the difference, especially if you’re trying to stop chronic jaw pain and enamel erosion.
Oral cancer is considered to be the sixth most common form of cancer in the world, which is why more and more dentists have taken the initiative to include oral cancer screenings in their routine checkups. Dr. Borsky takes this issue very seriously, which is why you can expect him to be very thorough during your routine exam. If he believes that the signs or symptoms of oral cancer are present, we’ll refer you to a medical doctor who can establish a proper diagnosis and get you on the right path towards treatment.
Getting your child started early when it comes to their oral health is incredibly important. Whether it’s making sure their teeth are developing properly or ensuring that no plaque or tartar is collecting on their smile, we do everything we can to protect your child’s oral health. Our office is designed to keep you and your whole family relaxed as during routine checkups and cleanings. If you need advice for at-home care, diet, or other treatments that may benefit your child, feel free to ask!
