Regular dental checkups are extremely important to maintain your oral health.
During your six-month exam, our caring dentists will assess the health of your teeth and gums, provide a thorough cleaning, an oral cancer screening, and address any concerns you may have. This in-depth assessment allows us to check your smile’s overall foundation and to uncover any issues before they become big problems.
Preventative dental treatments can protect you from future problems
Slater Family Dentistry provides a number of preventative procedures that can help protect you from decay, fractures, and other dental related issues that can be very costly to you. Preventative dentistry can be as simple as sticking with your cleanings, exams, and x-rays.
Dental sealants are a thin plastic coating painted onto the chewing surfaces of your teeth. They help fill in pits and grooves on the tooth surface, which are more susceptible to plaque build-up due to food debris becoming stuck.
As a preventative measure, sealants are painted to deflect the debris and reduce the risk of cavities. Sealants can be used to make brushing more effective for children and adults.
Do you have children that play sports? If so you probably want to protect their smile. At Slater Family Dentistry we make mouth guards for athletes that not only protect better than the mass produced over the country mouth pieces, but also improve breathing ability to allow for more efficient oxygen intake by your athlete!
A night guard is a removable appliance that fits over your upper or lower teeth. It's used to stop damage caused by grinding or gnashing of the teeth during sleep. This can work wonders for relieving headaches and jaw pain. At Slater family Dentistry we can fabricate a custom night guard that will outperform and outlast any night guard bought from the store. A night guard can also protect your teeth from cracking or fracturing and can be an invaluable dental appliance to improve your everyday life.
A dentist must possess exceptional artistic skill to create beautiful, natural results with cosmetic bonding.
