Most patients should visit us every six months for a thorough cleaning and checkup. At these routine appointments, we evaluate your oral health, answer your questions, and give you personalized guidance to help you care for your teeth and gums at home. If we notice any cause for concern, we will recommend further treatment. One of our talented hygienists will also give your mouth a refreshing cleaning that rids your teeth of plaque and tartar.

Fluoride Treatments

Tooth enamel is very strong, but everyday eating and drinking causes small bits of it to get worn away. Fluoride is a mineral that replenishes the enamel and helps to keep it strong. It also plays a role in the development of healthy teeth in children. Most toothpastes and many municipal water supplies contain fluoride, but if your mouth needs an extra boost of these remarkable mineral, we can provide a topical fluoride treatment right here in our dental office.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer is a devastating disease that can affect anyone, even individuals who have never smoked or chewed tobacco. That is why we always include a thorough oral cancer screening as part of a routine checkup. During the screening, we perform a visual and tactile examination of your mouth and the surrounding areas. If we find anything that might indicate cancer, such as discolored tissue or odd swelling, we will help you arrange for further testing.

Periodontal Therapy

Did you know that roughly half of adults in the U.S. have some form of periodontal (gum) disease? Left untreated, this infection can cause chronic bad breath, bleeding gums, and even tooth loss. If your gums need help to feel and function at their best, visit Comprehensive Dental Associates of Central Connecticut. We offer a number of procedures that can rid your mouth of disease-causing bacteria and help your gums to recover. We can even address the aesthetic concerns (such as severe gum recession) that often accompany periodontal disease.
