We help you ensure your teeth are clean, strong, and bright!
Dental exams, x-rays, and other diagnostic procedures are important in evaluating your oral health and hygiene.
They help the dentist to determine if you need tooth restoration or replacement, and to offer you valuable recommendations on preventative care.
A check-up allows us to see if you have any dental problems and helps you keep your mouth healthy.
Leaving problems untreated usually leads to pain, tooth loss and could make them more difficult to treat in the future, so it's best to deal with problems early, or, if possible, prevent them altogether.
Routine dental cleanings and check-ups are important to maintaining good oral hygiene.
Professional cleaning will remove plaque, tartar and bacteria which will cause decay and gum disease or more serious and costly conditions.
Mouthguards are removable protective devices for the mouth that cover the teeth and gums to reduce injury or damage. Mouthguards are often used in sports to protect the wearer’s teeth in case of physical impact.
Although mouthguards are available for over-the-counter purchase, appliances that are prescribed by Lake City Dental offer more protection and a customized fit. We can even make them in your school’s colors!
Sealants consist of a plastic material that is placed on the chewing surface of the permanent back teeth to help protect them from bacteria and acids that contribute to tooth decay.
Thorough brushing and flossing help remove food particles and plaque from the smooth surfaces of teeth, but toothbrushes can't reach all the way into the depressions and grooves to extract all food and plaque.
While fluoride helps prevent decay and helps protect all the surfaces of the teeth, dental sealants add extra protection for the grooved and pitted areas.
Radiographic or X-ray examinations provide us with an important tool that shows the condition of your teeth, its roots, jaw placement and the overall composition of your facial bones.
X-rays can help your dentist determine the presence or degree of periodontal disease, abscesses and many abnormal growths, such as cysts and tumors.
