How Many Dental Checkups & Cleanings Do I Need a Year?

Helping your smile stay strong and bright isn’t a one-time accomplishment. Instead, it’s a lifelong process that requires constant maintenance and personal care. Here in Ormond Beach, FL, Dr. Nawrocki and the rest of our dedicated team want to help support you, and we do so by providing comprehensive dental checkups, revitalizing hygiene, and other valuable preventive dentistry services to prevent dental problems before they ever get the chance to start. Contact us today to get started, or if you have any additional questions. Our dental practice welcomes patients from Daytona Beach, FL and other surrounding areas.

For children and adults with generally good oral health, we recommend two visits every year, or one each six months. These visits will help our team fully understand your current dental needs and any new developments that may have cropped up. Our goal is to locate any troubling signs of tooth decay, damage, or infection as early on as possible, which keeps treatment simple and effective. Additionally, an in-depth dental cleaning will get rid of the troublesome plaque and tartar that’s constantly forming on tooth and gum surfaces, keeping your smile refreshed and healthy.

Why Do I Need an Oral Cancer Screening?

Oral cancer might not get brought up in the dentist’s office as often as gum disease or the common cavity, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be worried about it. Tens of thousands of new cases are diagnosed each and every year, and nearly half of people diagnosed with the disease won’t survive more than five more years past this point. That’s because oral cancer isn’t usually identified until its advanced, destructive stages, when the chances of recovery are slim.

In order to better protect our patients, we’ve invested in VELscope to help us perform accurate and informative oral cancer screenings as part of every dental checkup here in Ormond Beach. The fluorescent scan clearly identifies areas of tissue that may be cancerous, resulting in earlier intervention and much greater chances of a safe, successful treatment process.

Can A Dentist Help Treat My Sleep Apnea?

In many cases, they sure can. If you’re struggling with chronic snoring and/or mild to moderate sleep apnea, a customized oral appliance from our team can provide effective care that’s much more convenient and comfortable than traditional CPAP treatment. These “snoreguards” help reposition the jaw and/or tongue, keeping your airway clear throughout the night and helping you wake feeling rested and ready for the day ahead.

What Is TMJ Disorder?

The “temporomandibular joint,” more commonly referred to as the “jaw joint,” assists in the basic opening and closing movements of the jaw. Unfortunately, this joint is a common area for recurring pain. Although conventional wisdom suggests that “popping” sounds in the jaw indicates a TMJ disorder, this is not always true. Many times, your jaw is functioning properly even if a “popping” sound is present when chewing or talking.
