Helping your family maintain optimal oral health is a job we take pride in. At Pacific Sky Dental, we not only have the ability to address all aspects of your dental health, but we can do it while maximizing your comfort and convenience at every step.
To ensure your teeth and gums stay in top condition, we proudly offer the following services in general and preventive care:
Routine Dental Cleanings & Exams
If you want to maintain strong dental health, routine dental cleanings and exams are not optional. Only a professional cleaning can remove hardened plaque and tartar before it causes serious threats to your smile. Your exam will also give us a chance to take x-rays, measure your gum health and diagnose dental problems at their earliest, most treatable stage.
Even during your routine preventive care, you will find the most advanced technology in modern dentistry. When it comes to imaging, we utilize digital x-rays. This gives patients a faster and more comfortable experience with less radiation exposure than traditional film.
Dental sealants are an easy and cost-effective way to protect teeth that are vulnerable to decay. In most cases, they are used on the chewing surfaces of your child’s back teeth, adding an extra layer of protection in the tiny grooves and crevices where food particles and bacteria like to collect.
Fluoride is a building block for strong enamel, which is the outer protective layer of a tooth. At Pacific Sky Dental, we have a keen understanding of how much fluoride children need for optimal dental health. We provide fluoride treatments here in our office as part of our top quality preventive care.
Custom Athletic Mouthguards
Is your child’s protected on the playing field? We offer the top grade custom mouthguards for young athletes. Athletic mouthguards can prevent chipped, broken and knocked out teeth as well as lip and cheek lacerations caused by blunt trauma. They have also been proven to help prevent concussions in youth sports.
Countless Americans unknowingly grind or clench their teeth while they sleep. Unfortunately, teeth grinding (bruxism) can lead to enamel damage, jaw problems and tension headaches. To prevent teeth grinding and protect your smile, consider a comfortable nightguard from Pacific Sky Dental.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is one of the most deadly cancers if it is not caught early. Therefore, we make it a priority to conduct oral cancer screenings during your routine dental exam. We also make patients aware of the early signs of oral cancer so that they can seek treatment right away. Our screenings are fast and painless, but they could save your life.
Root Canal Therapy
If you are suffering from the pain of an infected tooth, you’ll be pleased to know that root canal therapy can bring you immediate relief. This straightforward procedure removes the infected tooth pulp and seals the tooth against future infection. Rest assured that we have the means to perform root canals with optimal patient comfort.
It is not always possible to save your natural teeth. If damage, disease or decay has stolen the life of your tooth, an extraction may be needed. Our team offers tooth extraction services using conservative and skilled techniques that preserve surrounding tissues and bone and reduce patient discomfort.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are known for causing more harm than good. Due to lack of space, these back molars often erupt sideways or become impacted. This can not only be painful, but it can jeopardize the health and alignment of the adjacent teeth. To avoid such complications, we offer wisdom teeth removal at our office. This simple oral surgery is most often performed for patients between the ages of 16 and 20.
