Our complete and comprehensive preventive services include:

Oral Hygiene & Teeth Cleanings

Patients who brush and floss religiously twice daily will benefit from a professional cleaning every six months. Our offices are equipped with advanced dental tools that help to target areas that are hard to reach with a toothbrush and floss. During your visit, your dentist will also complete a full oral exam to look for any of the most common dental problems.

Dental Sealants

Tooth Decay is one of the most common of all dental problems. It happens because of bacterial buildup on teeth, most often on the chewing surfaces, where pits and grooves form. If left untreated, decay can cause serious damage. With the help of preventive service like dental sealants, it is possible to prevent tooth decay forming in the first place. Sealant, is applied on surfaces of the teeth and then dried to form a thin plastic barrier that can provide years of protection.

Bruxism / Nightguards

Bruxism is a condition caused by stress-induced teeth grinding. Patients struggling with this dental issue, which happens while they are asleep cannot consciously stop their teeth from grinding together. To treat this serious problem, Floridian Dental Group offers custom-made night guards designed to prevent teeth from grinding together during sleep, thereby avoiding serious damage to teeth and easing the uncomfortable symptoms of bruxism in the process.

Hence, wearing a sports guard is vital, no matter what sport you play. Visit one of our offices to discuss about getting a custom-made sports guard.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer claims roughly one life every hour, with thousands of new diagnoses made every year. Unfortunately, many of these diagnoses are not found until the disease is already well developed. At Floridian Dental Group, we’re hoping to reverse this trend. With oral cancer screening, our goal is to identify signs of cancer as early as possible, before it can develop and spread. The sooner we are able to diagnose, the sooner we can begin the treatment for you.
