The primary responsibility of a general dentist is to prevent oral disease. At Anthem Smile Arizona, we will provide our patients with the diagnostic and preventative care that will help keep their mouth, gums, and teeth healthy and strong.
The dentist and staff at Anthem Smile Arizona place a strong emphasis on oral health and hygiene, which will help our patients limit oral diseases, and if an oral disease is found, limit its progression. We limit oral diseases by seeing our patients routinely and emphasizing the importance of keeping your teeth and gums healthy with regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing with an antiseptic mouthwash.
Our preventative care program also includes a check-up every six months, cleanings at each check-up, and X-rays once a year. If any decay is detected at a check-up, we will recommend a treatment plan that could include the removal of the decay and the placement of a filling.
Our preventative care program also includes sealants and mouthguards for our younger patients. Sealants cover and protect the molars of adolescents, while mouthguards should be worn by children or young adults who participate in sports or recreational activities where collisions are likely.
If an oral disease escalates, we offer restorative treatments such as crowns, bridges, and dentures that will help our patients get the timely and appropriate treatment that is required. If an advanced restorative treatment is necessary, Anthem Smile Arizona can place implants, treat root canals, and perform other orthodontic procedures.
Does your smile need a freshening? Among the cosmetic treatments available at Anthem Smile Arizona is teeth whitening, veneers, bonding, or a complete smile makeover. All of these treatments are intended to help people feel better about the way they look.
Many people live with sleep apnea and don’t know it. Sleep apnea prevents people from getting a full night’s sleep and affects millions of people. Our team can fit our patients with an oral device that is specifically designed for your mouth. The ultimate goal is to help you get a better night’s sleep.
Anthem Smile Arizona also treats temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), a painful condition that affects the jaw joints and muscles that control the movement of the jaw. If you are experiencing pain near the front part of the ear on both sides of the face, you may be suffering from TMJ.
