Preventive Dentistry

Dentistry for Kids


Professional dentistry is an important part of maintaining excellent oral health, especially for children. At Comfort Dental Excellence, we pride ourselves on being a family-friendly office! We know that dentistry can be a scary thought for some kids, which is why our office is designed to make your child's visit fun, friendly, and comfortable.

Periodontal Care


Your periodontal (gum) tissues are just as important as your teeth. Unfortunately, many people do not treat their gums with the same respect. At Comfort Dental Excellence, we offer preventive and restorative care for periodontal issues. Above all else, we believe patient education is the best way to maintain healthy gums.

Dental Exam


Going to the dentist only when you experience pain in your mouth or tooth problems is a bad idea. We recommend coming in for checkups every six months. Our dentists have equipment and techniques we use to spot potential tooth problems that you might not detect on your own.

Studies have shown that people who go to the dentist regularly have fewer decaying teeth and need fewer teeth extracted. Staying on top of your dental health by keeping your teeth healthy will improve your overall health.

During a dental checkup, we will examine your teeth and gums, look over your medical history, and perform a professional cleaning.

Oral Cancer Screening


We perform oral cancer screenings to see if your mouth contains any signs of cancer or precancerous conditions. The sooner we catch symptoms of cancer, the better chance we have to provide a cure.

Certain factors can increase your risk of oral cancer, including:
•  Heavy alcohol usage
•  Tobacco usage
•  Significant sun exposure
•  Having a history of oral cancer or a previous diagnosis

Recent years have seen an increase in the number of people getting diagnosed with cancers of the throat and mouth, but the reasons for this remain unexplained. An alarming number of these cancers are connected with human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted disease.

If you're concerned about your cancer risk, talk to your doctor about ways you can reduce your risk and which screening tests would work best for you.

Dental Cleaning


Before a dental cleaning can begin, Dr. Kathiravan Mohan will carefully examine your mouth and the adjacent areas and check your medical and dental history.

Once these preliminary examinations are complete, the cleaning can begin. Power-driven scalers are used to remove plaque deposits on your teeth. An abrasive paste is then used to remove any plaque which may remain. Lastly, a fluoride treatment is often done to strengthen teeth and prevent future cavities.

Night Guard


The terms "mouthguard" and "night guard" refer to the same basic appliance, a plastic covering that is worn over the teeth for protection. There are three major types of night guards: stock protectors, boil and bite protectors, and custom-fit protectors. The first two options are store-bought and inexpensive. However, they are usually bulky, uncomfortable, and less effective than the custom-fit alternative.

Sports Guard


A sports guard is a plastic covering that protects the teeth from injury and trauma. While there are three types of guards, we almost always recommend a custom-designed appliance. A custom-designed sports guard offers superior comfort, durability, and effectiveness.

TMJ


The temporo­mandibular joint, or TMJ for short, is one of the most complex joints in the body. This complex series of ligaments, muscles, discs, and bones serve as a hinge-like mechanism that connects the upper and lower jaws. In other words, our TMJ allows us to move our lower jaw up, down, and side-to-side. Any problem that prevents the TMJ from working properly is known as a TMJ disorder or TMD.

Sleep Apnea


According to estimates, approximately 18 million Americans suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, a potentially serious sleep disorder. What makes things worse is that 80% of moderate and severe sleep apnea cases remain undiagnosed. Untreated sleep apnea can have several negative consequences for your health.

Our skilled team of dentists here at Comfort Dental Excellence will do our best to accommodate your individual needs. We look forward to giving you the dental care you deserve. Have questions? Give us a call at 610-681-6262.
