Dental Health Checkups
Regular dental exams and dental cleanings are the main part of your ongoing dental health plan at Apple Street Dental. During your checkup, we may offer dental sealants, fluoride treatments, and fluoride varnish. These are all ongoing preventive measures designed to help protect your smile from the dangers of harmful oral bacteria and tooth decay.
Through the use of our intraoral camera, you will be able to see how your mouth looks before and after your visit. Also, we can offer nutritional counseling to help keep your mouth safe from harmful foods. Apple Street Dental helps everyone get and keep a healthy smile.
Regardless of the season, there is always a sport that is being played. In the U.S., almost every sport has the possibility of injury. One of the most easily prevented forms of injury are those to your teeth. Through the use of a mouthguard, most dental injuries can be prevented. That’s why Apple Street Dental offers the service of fitting you or your children with athletic mouthguards. These custom mouthguards will help protect your teeth from injury regardless of the sport or activity.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD)
Is your jaw sore? Do your hear a clicking sound when you move it? Do you suffer from headaches or migraines? You may be suffering from symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder. We call it TMD for short, though you may have heard it referred to as TMJ (temporomandibular joint — the name of the jaw joint). This disorder is often confused with other ailments. Dr. Bessonet will diagnose you and develop a treatment plan to take care of your issue.
Dry mouth is another condition that causes oral health issues. You may be doing everything you can think of to try and take care of your dry mouth but still have not been able to get rid of it. Dry mouth can be caused by a number of different factors, from being a side effect of a prescription medication to simply breathing through your mouth for periods of time. Dr. Calvin Bessonet will be able to help you figure out what is causing your dry mouth and, more importantly, what you need to do about it so that it doesn’t bother you any more.
One of the biggest confidence killers a person can suffer from is bad breath. It causes social anxiety as well as embarrassment. You may be suffering from this condition through no fault of your own. Halitosis, or chronic bad breath, can be brought on by a variety of different factors, including gum disease. At Apple Street Dental, you will be able to have your condition diagnosed and a gum disease treatment option made available to you. There is no reason someone should have to live with a condition that we can take care of. Come see Dr. Calvin Bessonet to begin the process of eliminating your breath condition. You don’t have to worry about your breath any more.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is a very scary condition to have. If you or a member of your family suffers from it, you know exactly what we’re talking about. Whether you simply need to sleep in a different position or be fitted with a night guard to stop your snoring, Dr. Calvin Bessonet is able to help you sleep soundly through the night. We work with a physician to diagnose the sleep disorder.
