Preventive Dentistry – Parsippany, NJ
Preserving Teeth for a Lifetime of Healthy Smiles
Periodontal disease and improper oral homecare can lead to dental problems, and at Rauchberg Dental Group, we want patients to keep their teeth for a lifetime with preventive dentistry in Parsippany, NJ. Regular exams, cleanings, and homecare routines will prevent many dental problems. If we detect periodontal disease, our hygiene team can treat it, rid the mouth of disease and infection, and provide options to prevent recurrence.
Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
The American Dental Association recommends receiving a checkup and cleaning every six months to ensure the health of your teeth and gums. At each of these appointments, our team will thoroughly examine your mouth for any lingering, common oral health problems like cavities. If we spot anything out-of-the-ordinary, we’ll go ahead and develop a treatment plan to take care of it. Finally, before you leave, we’ll professionally clean and polish your teeth so your smile feels refreshed and healthy.
At Rauchberg Dental Group, our experienced team of professionals is happy to treat patients of all ages. We offer adult and kid-friendly treatments to tackle and prevent common oral issues, like cavities and gum disease, so you can keep your family’s oral health in tip-top shape. We’re also happy to schedule multiple appointments for your loved ones in one day, so you can consolidate everyone’s care and simplify your schedule.
OralID Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is among the top three most common oral diseases in the United States. We conduct routine screenings at each of your checkups in order to increase the chances of early diagnoses, leading to a higher likelihood of successful treatment. OralID is a special gadget that we use during this process that utilizes fluorescent technology to illuminate your oral tissues and allow us to easily detect oral mucosal abnormalities and pre-cancerous symptoms. That way, we’re able to catch even the earliest signs of oral cancer.
Your mouth has a much larger affect on your body than simply intaking your food and water. If you don’t take care of it, your overall well-being can suffer, and the reverse is also true. Our team at Rauchberg Dental Group has the skills and specialized training to help you recognize signs of more harmful conditions and take care of your mouth to prevent or reduce the severity of overall health problems in the future.
Oral Care Products
We understand that you might feel a little overwhelmed when you walk down the oral care products aisle at your local grocery store. There are too many choices! Let our team of experts guide you. We can recommend which toothbrush and toothpaste you should use and answer your questions about the latest trends in oral home care. We’ll even demonstrate how to use your products in a way that produces the best results.
Patient Homecare Education
Homecare is the foundation of a healthy smile. The things you do every day can have a huge impact on your smile’s long-term well-being, which is why we always make the effort to educate our patients about how to care for their teeth on a daily basis. Whether you have questions about proper flossing technique, or you want help to make tooth-friendly snack choices, let us give you personalized advice that will take your regular oral care routine to the next level.
Nightguards, Mouthguards & Snoreguards
Bruxism (nighttime teeth grinding) is a serious problem that can lead to premature wear and tear on your teeth as well as TMJ dysfunction. We can provide you with a custom nightguard to protect your smile and help your jaw relax while you’re getting your shuteye. If you play sports, we’ll happily design a custom mouthguard to protect your smile against injury while you’re tearing up the field or conquering the court. We can also design a custom snoreguard for any patients struggling with excessive snoring.
Most patients should visit their Parsippany twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. However, some individuals have special oral health needs that necessitate more frequent appointments. Whichever is true in your case, we’ll schedule your care in a way that helps you maintain and even improve your smile’s wellbeing as the months, years, and decades pass.
