Preventive Exams and Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)

patient getting their teeth cleaned at Radiant Family DentistryAs leading dental hygienists, our team believes in the power of regular teeth cleanings, flossing, dental sealants, and strengthening mineral treatments to prevent oral decay and disease. We focus on providing ultra-thorough dental care exams that assess your teeth, gums, and overall health.

Your dental hygiene and cleaning appointment will include a set of non-invasive digital x-rays or photos (if required) to understand the overall health of your mouth and accurately diagnose any dental concerns. Your dental hygienist will then use state-of-the-art tools to perform a gentle, thorough cleaning, including a polish, floss, and mineral treatment to strengthen the teeth.

We will also assess your gums for any signs of periodontal disease. Your exam will include a meeting with our doctor, Dr. Christine Chan, to discuss any dental concerns you may have and any recommendations for further dental treatments. Patients are always encouraged to openly inquire about any dental concerns they may have, including questions about financing, cosmetic treatments, orthodontics, sedation dentistry, and more.

Tooth Fillings

A tooth filling is a simple procedure primarily used to restore the teeth from cavities or mild decay and deterioration. Dental fillings are extremely common and have a high success rate. At Radiant Family Dentistry, we offer a selection of safe, amalgam-free dental fillings. While the filling material used will depend on your needs, our team will most often use naturally tooth-colored composite fillings that blend with the rest of your smile!

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a thin coating carefully painted on the teeth to protect them from cavities. Sealants can be used in preventive care for children or adults to protect against the development of cavities in the deep chewing surfaces of the back teeth. There, the grooves, pits, and fissures within the teeth are narrow and difficult to thoroughly clean with a toothbrush, making them more prone to cavities. Dental sealants create a smoother area that promotes easier cleanings and offers a quick, affordable option to help our patients keep bacteria and cavities at bay.

Halitosis (Bad Breath) Treatment

Looking for a treatment to freshen your breath? Millions of people – an estimated 1 in 4 people globally – suffer from chronic bad breath (halitosis). Halitosis is caused by oral bacteria becoming trapped in the mouth for an extended amount of time. The key to treating halitosis is treating the root of the problem by removing the bacterial source of the odor. Most over-the-counter remedies such as mouthwash, mints, and gum will only mask the problem.

At Radiant Family Dentistry, we treat halitosis with a professional cleaning and oral cleanse to reach the crevices not normally accessed through regular brushing and flossing. Occasionally a deep cleaning, consisting of scaling and root planing, is needed to remove bacteria trapped below the gum line. We also can perform a tongue scraping if the tongue is the source of the condition.

Athletic Mouth Guards

A custom mouthguard should be considered an essential piece of equipment for every athlete who participates in contact sports and activities—adults and children included! A mouth guard cushions blows, protects against concussions, and can help prevent serious injuries that may result in a lifetime of oral health problems. At Radiant Family Dentistry, our mouthguards are designed to be easily inserted and removed when needed. They are always custom-made from a lightweight material that is both comfortable and effective and does not interfere with regular breathing or speaking.

Bruxism Night Guards

Our custom nightguards are designed to be worn while sleeping to prevent the damaging effects of bruxism, a disorder that causes patients to clench and grind their teeth while they are asleep. Leaving bruxism untreated can cause symptoms like fractured teeth, bite dysfunction, headaches, and jaw pain. Our nightguards are designed to keep bruxism symptoms at bay and preserve your healthy, complete smile!

Periodontal Therapy and Gum Disease Treatment

Periodontal disease, gum disease, and periodontitis are all phrases that we use to describe an infection in the gingiva (gums) and bone around the teeth. Because we rely on healthy structures to keep the roots of the teeth intact, it’s critical that signs of periodontitis are identified as early as possible. That's why our Scottsdale dental team performs a thorough periodontal assessment at every preventive appointment, looking for the earliest signs of gingivitis. Minor redness, swelling, or mild bleeding may be common signs of gingivitis and, if left untreated, can lead to permanent structural damage.
