Dentistry services to preserve your smile

The best way to prevent future problems with your teeth is to make sure you regularly take care of your teeth and take positive steps to preserve your oral health. Part of maintaining your oral health is working with a dentist who provides the right services that you can trust. Whether it’s scheduling regular teeth cleanings to screenings for oral cancer, the team at Southridge Dental is focused on your oral health. Our goal is to take a proactive approach to prevent problems in the future. Please reach out to us to learn more about how we can help you.

Preventive Dentistry

Maintaining a healthy smile is all about prevention and taking proactive steps to preserve your mouth’s health for years to come. At Southridge Dental, our team specializes in preventive dentistry services that are focused on helping you identify potential hazards with your oral health and treating them before they become larger issues. From taking X-rays to identify potential problems with your teeth, to providing fluoride and smile restoration services, we’ll work with you to make sure you have a healthy smile for years to come. 

Gum & Periodontal Care

Your gums are just as important as your teeth when it comes to oral health. Gum health issues can be an indication of other health issues, including stroke or heart disease. Our team can identify potential hazards in your oral tissue health. We can treat the early stages of gum disease and tell you what you need to do to improve your gum health. Maintaining proper gum health can improve conditions like gingivitis and periodontitis. Regular cleanings and maintaining proper oral hygiene are critical to preventing these conditions. 

Oral Cancer Screenings

A critical component of oral health is making sure our patients aren’t at risk for oral cancer. Our team is trained to identify risk factors for oral cancer for our patients. Part of these screenings is making sure we identify potential risk factors for oral cancer. The following habits can increase your risk for oral cancer:

  • Tobacco use
  • Heavy alcohol use
  • HPV infection
  • Prolonged history of sun exposure

Oral cancer screenings are critical for early detection. If oral cancer is discovered early, it is much more likely that it can be treated successfully. 

TMJ Treatment

Oral health goes beyond having healthy teeth and gums. At Southridge Dental, we regularly see patients experiencing pain caused by Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders. These conditions can be painful and cause disruptions to your everyday life. TMJ disorders can cause a variety of issues, including:

  • Headache
  • Jaw pain
  • Popping sensation when opening the mouth
  • Ear pain
  • Neck pain

TMJ therapy at Southridge Dental can alleviate the symptoms caused by these disorders to help you live a more comfortable, pain-free life. 

“I was getting headaches every day and after going to multiple doctors and chiropractors Dr. Squires contributed this to me grinding my teeth while sleeping. He made a clear mouth-guard that formed perfectly to my teeth right there in his office and told me to wear this when I sleep. I have to say I was a little skeptical but after following his instructions my headaches are gone and my teeth are healthier.”
