Preventative Dentistry

Your Oral Health Is Our Priority

Maintaining a healthy mouth and teeth all comes down to practicing good oral hygiene habits. Regular dental visits and a daily at home brushing and flossing routine are the cornerstones to maintaining your oral as well as overall health. At Aesthetic Smile Design, we work with you to provide effective preventative dentistry so you can smile with confidence.

As members of the American Association of Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH), Dr. Edeer and our dental hygienist are in tune with the effects of oral health on the rest of your body. Science shows that preventative dentistry and the elimination of dental infections and inflammation are effective in lowering the C-reactive protein level in the blood, which in turn lowers health risks such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Pregnancy complications

Common options to correct oral health problems

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Known as gum disease, it is a painless condition typically found in adults but increasingly seen in teenagers, as well. It is the number one reason for adult tooth loss, and inflammation has been linked to many serious health conditions.

To treat periodontal disease, we offer scaling and root planing, as well as other non-surgical gum therapy to eliminate inflammation and maintain healthy gums.

Protective Night Guards: Clenching or grinding of the teeth can cause damage to dental work and jaw pain. Patients are often not even aware they are doing it. We recommend a comfortable, convenient, custom-made oral appliance to absorb the pressure. It helps protect your smile, dental investment and TMJ.

Other benefits of a night appliance include keeping your jaw in place to reduce or eliminate snoring, which can be a sign of sleep apnea.
