Did you know that one of the best ways to keep your smile healthy is through preventive dentistry? Visiting your dentist for regular check-ups helps to keep plaque and tartar buildup at bay, with advanced care that can't be achieved with home care alone. At James Warren Dental, we're proud to provide the best preventive care in Millbrae, CA, using top dental technologies that allow us to catch dental concerns before they have the chance to become more serious issues.
Our preventive exams include professional cleanings (prophylaxis) and a selection of other treatments based on the customized recommendations from Dr. Warren. We offer the following services at our Millbrae dental office:
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
To keep your teeth healthy in between appointments, Dr. Warren recommends all patients schedule regular dental cleanings at least twice a year to prevent disease and other oral health issues. Depending on the current state of your oral health, he may recommend more frequent, targeted cleanings.
Removing plaque and tartar buildup is a must! For dental cleanings, our team uses the latest dental tools to provide comfortable, quick care, working to stop plaque along the way. Next, a gentle polishing of the teeth will help remove unwanted stains and discoloration. In some instances, our team may recommend an additional strengthening mineral treatment for further smile protection!
Oral Cancer Screening
With every preventive exam, patients receive a comprehensive screening for oral cancer with our painless, non-invasive screening system. Our oral cancer screenings are designed to maintain the safety of your teeth and monitor overall health — plus our screening tools are sensitive enough to detect instances of oral cancer in its earliest phases!
Custom-Fitted Athletic Mouthguards
If you're involved in any type of sports, a custom athletic mouthguard can be ordered at any regular visit to protect your smile! Mouthguards are your smile's best form of insurance against oral injuries, broken teeth, concussions, and any of the other potential risks associated with athletics. Our mouthguards are always custom-crafted to fit your unique smile!
Mouthguards for TMJ
Do you experience teeth grinding (bruxism) while you sleep? Bruxism can contribute to headaches, TMJ disorder, and uneven tooth wear. At James Warren Dental we also create custom-fitted night guards to treat patients suffering from the uncomfortable symptoms of TMJ. If you are experiencing jaw pain or discomfort, Dr. Warren will check for signs of TMJ disorder and help you find relief using advanced treatments. Our special orthotics are designed to help keep headaches at bay and preserve your healthy bite function!
Teeth-Strengthening Mineral Application
At James Warren Dental, we offer a strengthening mineral application to both children and adults to help strengthen weak teeth. The mineral application is long-lasting and effective when paired with a sensible home care routine.
Desensitizing Treatments For Sensitive Teeth
Are your teeth sensitive to heat and cold? If this affects your ability to enjoy certain foods or drinks, our team has a desensitizing solution for you! Dr. Warren will assess the cause of your sensitivity during your appointment, and after ruling out anything serious, will apply a special paste designed to relieve the sensitivity for months. We'll also provide recommendations on how to prevent teeth sensitivity between your regular appointments!
Dental sealants provide a protective layer over your back molars. At James Warren Dental, we provide sealants to help prevent unnecessary tooth decay in the hard-to-reach areas of your mouth.
