A healthy smile is more than just an attractive asset — it's also essential to one's overall health and well-being. To keep your teeth looking and feeling their best, our Las Vegas dental office offers state-of-the-art preventive care and dental cleanings for patients of all ages. Our skilled hygienists use the latest dental equipment to remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth before polishing them for a clean, luminous finish.
At Stunning Smiles of Las Vegas, our dentists emphasize taking a proactive approach as the best way to maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. When you visit our office for checkup visits and routine dental care, we can help you and your family prevent the onset and progression of a long list of oral health concerns.
As skilled, experienced providers of care, our Las Vegas dentists offer a comprehensive range of preventive services, including thorough examinations, professional teeth cleanings, and oral cancer screenings, along with customized patient education on healthy practices like oral hygiene and nutrition.
Our preventive care and dental cleanings near Las Vegas include spot-on diagnosis and treatment to prevent decay, gum issues, and tooth fractures. We use 3D digital x-rays, intraoral and extraoral cameras, digital cavity detection, and intraoral scanners to spot potential issues before they get the chance to become problems.
We offer the following preventive care services:
Our comprehensive, holistic preventive program is designed to preserve your healthy teeth and the supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental disease. As we perform an oral exam and check for the development of common dental conditions like tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer, we'll also take note of any signs of problematic health issues that may have originated elsewhere in the body.
We encourage patients to visit us twice a year for routine checkups and professional cleanings. This way, our dentists can monitor your oral health, reduce your risk of dental disease, and detect any issues early in their onset when they are typically the simplest to treat. Our hygienist will thoroughly remove any accumulated plaque and tartar from between the teeth and gums to banish the signs of cavities and gum disease. Following a dental cleaning and polishing to remove any superficial stains from your teeth, your mouth will feel fresh and clean!
Our dentists understand that in conjunction with periodic dental professional cleanings, a good dental home care regimen is necessary. As part of the preventive program at Stunning Smiles of Las Vegas, we'll take time to review your current home care routine and make recommendations for maintaining your best oral health at home.
An integral part of our preventive program for pediatric patients includes periodic fluoride treatments and the application of dental sealants. Based on the findings of your unique preventive exam, additional preventive services may be recommended.
A screening for oral cancer will be included in your comprehensive preventive exam. Your dentist will review your medical and dental histories, review recent changes to your oral health or overall health, and carefully check in and around the oral cavity as well as the head and neck area for any signs or symptoms that may indicate oral cancer concern.
At Stunning Smiles of Las Vegas, OralID® aids our dentists in the early detection and diagnosis of oral cancer. OralID operates on optical fluorescence, emitting blue light to distinguish healthy tissue from tissue undergoing abnormal changes. The device resembles a small flashlight and offers the dentist a second set of eyes to aid in identifying abnormal tissue changes. If any abnormalities are detected, further diagnostic assessments will be recommended.
In addition to using OralID, chemotherapeutic rinses can be incorporated into routine oral cancer screenings at our office. These rinses contain drugs that target rapidly dividing cells and have been shown to reduce the risk of oral cancer by killing potentially cancerous cells. By combining the use of OralID and chemotherapeutic rinses, your dentist can improve the accuracy and effectiveness of each oral cancer screening.
For patients suffering from teeth grinding at night (also known as bruxism), we offer custom-made night guards to help correct the problem and preserve healthy teeth and prevent uneven tooth wear. Our dentists have helped relive bite-related headaches, too, using special orthotics and advanced treatments to fix bite function problems that cause painful headaches.
Athletic mouth guards are one of the most critical pieces of equipment when playing sports. If you participate in sports, wearing a mouthguard is essential to protect your smile! Our custom-made mouth guards will provide superior protection for your teeth and jaw and protect your smile from concussions. Our simple athletic mouthguards are designed to offer the best insurance for your smile!
If you experience sensitivity to hot and cold, and avoid certain foods or drinks because of this, we can help! Our dentists will apply a special paste to take away sensitivity for months and may recommend keeping your teeth sharp between regular appointments.
