Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

Whether someone is 3 or 103, Dr. Funk recommends that patients of all ages should receive at least two checkups and cleanings every year. Many oral health problems don’t exhibit any symptoms early on, meaning most people don’t notice anything until an issue is already quite advanced. Checkups enable Dr. Funk to find any decay or damage early and take care of it right away. And, with a professional cleaning, our team can remove harmful plaque and tartar from hard to reach areas in your mouth and break up minor surface stains to keep your teeth nice and white!

Fluoride Treatments

You’ll find fluoride in quite a few places if you look—it’s in many foods, toothpastes, and probably even the water you drink from the tap. Decades of research has shown that regular exposure to this mineral is a safe and easy way to lower a person’s risk of developing tooth decay, which is why we often include a topical fluoride treatment during regular checkups. It only takes a minute, is completely painless, and it’s one of the best ways to keep a smile cavity-free between appointments.

Nightguards for Bruxism

Do you consistently wake up with a headache or sore jaw? If so, you might be grinding your teeth while you sleep, which is a condition called bruxism. This exposes your teeth to crushing forces night after night, and eventually, it can lead to quite a bit of dental damage. Fortunately, we can help patients get past the grind with something called a nightguard. It’s a small oral appliance only worn to bed, and it simply places a firm barrier between the teeth to prevent any harmful contact during the night.

At-Home Oral Hygiene Products

There is an almost endless variety of oral healthcare products available on store shelves today, but which ones are right for you and your family? Instead of listening to some ad campaign, the team at Sweeny Family Dental can point you in the right direction. We can even provide a number of prescription strength products that you won’t find on store shelves. Just be sure to talk to our hygienists at your next appointment, and they’ll set you straight!
