Dental sealants are a great way to fight back against cavities. They consist of a layer of special plastic resin, which is painted onto your rear teeth after they have been cleaned. This resin is hardened with a UV light, creating a strong barrier which prevents oral bacteria, acid and food debris from contacting your enamel. When properly applied, this barrier prevents cavities for up to 10 years.
Regular teeth cleanings and oral exams are the cornerstones of preventive dentistry. At your routine cleaning, Dr. Lynn Fee and the team at Delaware Dental Studio will clean and polish your teeth and look for signs of gum disease, cavities, and other oral health issues. This ensures we catch any issues early, and can take the appropriate action to restore your smile.
Oral cancer can be difficult to detect unless you have regular, routine oral cancer screenings at your dental checkups. Dr. Fee will use intraoral cameras to look for irregularities and abnormalities in your mouth and check for any potential signs of oral cancer.
Fluoride treatments consist of a fluoride-rich gel which is painted directly onto your teeth. Fluoride has the ability to encourage tooth remineralization, strengthen your teeth, and reverse minor cases of tooth decay (soft spots), ensuring that your mouth stays healthy.
We use composite, tooth-colored fillings at Delaware Dental Studio. Our fillings match your teeth perfectly, and are the best way to treat a minor cavity before it progresses. If you do not get frequent preventive care, you could be left with a cavity. If this happens, you’ll need to get a filling for your tooth to prevent further decay and more expensive, complicated treatments, such as a root canal and a dental crown.
Oral appliances look sort of like a sports mouthguard, and they are designed to shift the jaw into a healthier position during sleep. They are commonly used to treat sleep apnea. By moving the jaw into the proper position, oral appliances prevent the tissue of the throat and palate from sagging and blocking the airway. However, oral appliances can also be used to treat heavy snoring, even if apnea is not present.
