At Sparkle Dental, we pride ourselves on treating every member of the family. Family dentistry is focused on preventing potential complications, rather than treating them. If you and your family are in need of professional dental services, we can help!
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends a routine check-up up roughly twice a year. A routine appointment with Ernest Yazigi, DMD or Jessika Jahnsen, DMD will typically include a professional cleaning and a detailed examination of your teeth, gums, and other oral tissues.
We recommend regular dental checkups because we ascribe to the general approach that prevention is always better than cure. If your oral health problems are detected on time, you stand better chances of treating and getting rid of them.
We recommend that you come in for screening since just like with any other cancer, mouth cancer is easier to treat at the early stages. During this stage, before it has had a chance to grow and affect other tissues in your mouth, you can get treatment, which may involve surgery, and make a full recovery.
Professional dental care is a crucial part of your child's oral health. Be sure to schedule your child's first appointment by the time their first teeth erupt, or before their first birthday. Scheduling regular appointments allows us to monitor the development of their oral health. Developmental problems are easier to treat in the beginning stages. As your child grows older, we can establish a strong foundation for their oral health, one that will ensure a lifetime of healthy, beautiful teeth.
Your periodontal (gum) tissues are just as important as your teeth. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States. Periodontal disease is the result of an infection in the gum tissues, connective ligaments, and eventually the alveolar bone.
The disease is characterized by gums that are swollen, red, and tend to bleed during brushing and flossing. Luckily, periodontal disease is easy to prevent and treat if it is caught early enough. If we notice signs of advanced periodontal disease, we may recommend a scaling and root planing procedure. The goal is to return your gums to a pink, healthy state.
Our team of experts here at Sparkle Dental are more than happy to perform all your periodontal maintenance services. The periodontal area is located around the teeth and is commonly associated with periodontal disease. You will feel the effect of periodontal disease in your gums and around the bones that support your teeth.
If you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding), we may also recommend a night guard. Many patients with bruxism tend to grind their teeth during sleep. A night guard acts as a barrier that prevents enamel wear.
We at Sparkle Dental are your best option when you are looking for sports mouthguards. They are an essential requirement for anyone that is in sports because they protect your teeth.
If you have obstructive sleep apnea, you may benefit from an oral appliance. An oral appliance will keep your jaw in the proper position during sleep. This opens your airway and improves your breathing during sleep. With an oral appliance, you may find yourself feeling more well-rested, alert and happy, thanks to a full night's sleep.
