Preserving Windham Smiles with Preventive Dentistry

Adults aren’t the only ones who need routine care. It’s just as important for children to see a dentist on a routine basis. That’s why our Windham dental practice is proud to offer preventive care to patients of all ages. Through professional cleanings, dental exams, and other preventive treatments, we help both children and adults enjoy oral health and wellbeing.

Our family and preventive services include:

Hygiene and Cleanings

If you want a smile that is both healthy and beautiful, visit Lifetime Dental Health every six months for a hygiene appointment. Daily care at-home isn’t enough to keep bacteria and plaque from collecting on your teeth and gums, but routine professional hygiene appointments give patients smiles that look and feel amazing.

Your appointment will include both a cleaning by a professional hygienist and a full oral exam by the dentist. These two services combined give you added defense against the most common dental problems. During your cleaning, your hygienist uses our office’s advanced tools to clean parts of the mouth that are hard to reach with floss or an everyday toothbrush. The oral exam the dentist will perform helps you identify problems that require advanced care.

Not every patient needs additional help, but those who do need it should seek treatment as soon as possible to preserve oral health. If you have questions treatments the dentist recommends, don’t hesitate to let us know. Our entire team is happy to answer your questions. We want you to thoroughly understand your dental care plan.

Dental Sealants

If you need extra help protecting your smile from decay, the team at Lifetime Dental Health offers a simple, effective solution: dental sealants. Sealants only takes a few minutes, but patients enjoy extra dental protection for as long as ten years. Sealants are painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth, particularly around grooves or pits, and harden to form a thin layer of plastic that blocks bacteria.

Athletic Mouthguard

Do you play sports, or does someone else in your family? If you’re playing without an athletic mouthguard, you’re missing an essential piece of equipment. An athletic mouthguard is an appliance designed to help athletes protect their teeth while active. Mouthguards are especially important for someone playing a contact sport, even athletes who don’t should consider wearing a guard. Besides protecting the teeth, athletic mouthguards are known to reduce the severity of concussions.

Nightguards for Bruxism

Do you struggle with unconscious teeth grinding or jaw clenching? You’ll find the help you’re looking for at Lifetime Dental Health. With a custom oral appliance known as a nightguard, our Windham office helps you control your condition and the symptoms associated with it. Left untreated bruxism can result in damage to your teeth and increase the risk of developing advanced TMJ dysfunction. Wearing a nightguard helps minimize grinding and clenching, so you enjoy better oral and overall wellbeing.
