General dentistry, preventive care, family dentistry—there are different terms that all refer to the essential first step to oral health and wellness. Strong teeth begin with professional cleanings, checkups, x-rays, screening for disease, and protecting your teeth from damage and disease.
Brush at least twice a day, floss at least once a day–we’ve all heard those words. Making those practices part of everyday life is the most important aspect of diligent oral hygiene but keeping regular hygiene appointments with us can keep dental disasters from ever happening.
At Mirage Family Dentistry, we focus on prevention and proactive solutions. Because your oral and overall health are a priority for us, we include oral cancer screening with every semiannual hygiene visit. Fighting oral cancer is one of our passions.
Bruxism is a medical condition in which you grind or clench your teeth. It is usually diagnosed as a sleep disorder, and left unchecked, bruxism can be severe enough to cause headaches, damaged teeth, jaw pain, severe tooth wear, and other problems.
