Exceptional Dentistry for Adults & Seniors

Image of senior mother and adult daughter outdoorsAs you age, the type of dental services you need changes. However, prevention remains key to your dental health and overall well-being throughout your life. We focus on regular exams and maintenance cleanings. Any damage to your teeth and gums can pose a severe risk to your oral health, which is related to your whole-body health, also known as the oral-systemic connection.

What is the Oral-Systemic Connection?

Gum disease is caused by bacteria in your mouth that can find their way to the bloodstream through your gums or respiratory system. Once bacteria access the bloodstream, they can travel to other parts of the body contributing to inflammation. These bacteria can intensify heart disease, spike insulin levels, or making diabetes symptoms more serious.

Dental Prevention Techniques For Adults

We provide you with the following prevention services to maintain your oral health.

Oral Health Exams: During examinations, we thoroughly examine your teeth, gums, tongue, jaws, head, and neck. Our exam looks for warning signs of potential oral health complications. Our team also takes a series of x-rays to identify any dental issues you might have. We perform a cancer screening with every oral exam.

Dental Cleanings: We recommend you undergo professional cleanings twice a year. During these appointments, we can clean all the hard-to-reach areas and remove plaque and tartar buildup.

Do You Provide Gum Disease Treatment?

If we discover gum disease, we offer scaling and root planing, also known as deep cleaning. For severe cases, we refer to a periodontist.

Sleep Apnea & TMD

In addition to interrupting your rest, sleep apnea is also linked to harmful conditions like Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD). We offer sleep apnea appliances and nightguards that can improve your sleep significantly and reduce dental issues.

Additional Treatments for Adults & Seniors

Regardless of your needs, whether complex or routine, Dr. Howarth and his team use top-quality materials and state-of-the-art technologies to provide you with the best care.

We provide various treatments to help you revive your smile, including:
