Throughout the country, there are far too many individuals suffering from cavities and gum disease. These types of oral health issues tend to grow worse the longer they go without being properly treated. However, by visiting our team at Frandsen Dental of Orem every six months for a checkup and cleaning, we can help you deal with dental issues while they’re still small – or even stop them from happening in the first place. Don’t hesitate to call us if it’s almost time for your next preventive visit to the dentist.

Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

When you come to our office for a dental checkup, we can use our Pearl cavity detection system to check for even the smallest signs of tooth decay. On top of that, we can get rid of any bacteria that could potentially be contributing to gum disease with the help of our Picasso laser. While we’re examining your smile, we can perform a quick oral cancer screening; if there are any symptoms that you should be concerned about, we’ll explain what steps you should take next.

Dentistry for Children

Even a child who just got their first tooth can potentially be at risk for cavities, so you should make a point of making sure your little one receives high-quality dental care early on. Whenever you bring your child in for an appointment, we’ll check for signs of cavities, and we’ll also make sure that their mouth is developing as expected. We will inform you immediately if there are any problems with your child’s bite, teeth, or gums that need to be treated as soon as possible.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is crucial for maintaining a strong, cavity-free smile. For this reason, fluoride can be found in a variety of oral hygiene products and in tap water. Additionally, you can have a fluoride treatment performed the next time you visit our office. By applying fluoride directly to your enamel, we can help ensure that your smile stays safe until your next appointment. Both children and adults can potentially benefit from a fluoride treatment.

Dental Sealants

Many young children – as well as some adults – have a hard time keeping their molars and premolars clean. For these types of patients, we may suggest dental sealants, which can be applied to the chewing surfaces of the teeth in question. This is done to seal off the various pits and grooves where bacteria and food particles might gather. Even though dental sealants can be placed relatively quickly, they have the potential to last for more than 10 years.
