Sealants

Sealants protect the chewing surfaces of the back teeth and should be applied as a child’s permanent teeth erupt. Though typically placed on children’s teeth, adult molars can also be sealed, provided a tooth does not show evidence of decay or have previous restorations on the tooth. The sealants that we have placed have been highly successful in preventing decay.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride applications help to strengthen the enamel on your child’s teeth, making it more difficult for cavities to begin. Children should be receiving fluoride treatments every six months.  For adults, flouride rinses and/or direct flouride treatments may be indicated to offset certain medical or oral conditions.

Regular Prophylaxis

These important appointments allow Drs. Nick and Nate Pound and our hygienists to monitor your oral health and clean under your gum line where the toothbrush cannot reach. They also help promote healthy gums and teeth by removing the plaque that causes decay and gum infection, and educating you about prevention.

Tooth Desensitization

Patients with a highly sensitive tooth may fine that fluoride is also helpful to adults to reduce the pain and discomfort caused by exposed root surfaces (receding gums). Regular fluoride application helps eliminate root sensitivity. Our patients have found it helpful to have a series of fluoride treatments to reduce their sensitivity, followed by possible at-home applications.

Antibiotic Irrigation

This procedure can be used at home or in our office to control the bacteria that causes periodontal disease. The gum tissue is bathed and flushed with an antibiotic preparation to promote healing of the gum tissue. Our hygienist can tell you how.

Nightguard Therapy

Bite splints and nightguards are used as a treatment option to prevent damage to the chewing surfaces of the teeth associated with grinding and clenching. It is a conservative treatment that is very successful and highly recommended for patients with TMJ dysfunction. By creating an acrylic pattern of your teeth, Drs. Nick and Nate Pound can help you protect your teeth from unnecessary wear.  Our office can provide custom made protective devices for use during sports participation and for problematic snoring issues.
