Strengthen Your Teeth

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride has the unique ability to remineralize and strengthen your teeth, reversing the effects of minor tooth decay. During your treatment, we will paint a fluoride-rich gel directly onto your teeth. It will be left in place for a few minutes, then rinsed away. With the regular application of fluoride, you can prevent the formation of cavities.

Prevent Cavities

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are the best way to prevent cavities from forming in your rear teeth. They consist of a transparent dental resin that will be applied directly to your teeth after they have been cleaned. This resin will then be hardened into a strong plastic barrier that will prevent bacteria, food particles and acid from contacting your enamel. When applied properly, dental sealants can help prevent cavities for up to 10 years.

Restore Your Gum Health

Periodontal Care

Gum disease affects nearly half of all American adults. We offer gum disease treatments such as deep cleanings (scaling & root planing) and gum grafting. Deep cleanings involve using special dental tools to clean plaque, tartar and bacteria away from between your gums and teeth, and to smooth out the roots of your teeth where bacteria tends to accumulate. Combined with antibiotic treatment, this is typically the first method used to fight back against the early stages of gum disease.

More advanced stages of gum disease can cause permanent damage to your gums and teeth. Gum grafting can be used to help treat this damage. This procedure involves taking tissue from your cheek or the roof of your mouth and grafting it onto your gums to cover up issues like exposed tooth roots due to gum recession

Get Peace of Mind

Oral Cancer Screenings

We include oral cancer screenings as part of every six-month cleaning and oral exam at AT Dental Care. We use intraoral cameras and special dental tools to check your mouth for any potential signs of cancer, like lesions, bumps, discoloration, and any other suspicious patches of tissue. This allows you to learn about any potential signs early, and seek out appropriate treatment.
