Cold Sore Treatment
Cold sores (fever blisters) are a very common concern for patients, the all too familiar swollen, red and irritated skin around the area of breakout. Unfortunately, there is not a cure for the herpes simplex virus (HSV-1 and HSV-2) which is the cause, however there are ways to manage and even prevent breakouts.
Mouth guards are prescribed by your dentist and created in a professional dental lab. They are custom made from thermoplastic materials and are created from the detailed mold your dentist will take of your teeth and mouth when they are fitting you for a guard. These are usually needed for patients who play sports. They are highly personalized and can be adjusted for ideal thickness and the perfect fit by your dentist.
If you have been suffering with chronic migraines and headaches from clenching your teeth involuntarily at night, let SmileOn Dentistry help end your discomfort by fitting you with a night guard. This thin, transparent guard is worn over your teeth at night preventing the ability for your upper and lower teeth to make contact and help you to avoid the detrimental effects of clenching and grinding while sleeping.
Oral Cancer Screening
Your dentist is your first line of protection in detecting oral cancer. Oral cancer screenings are designed to detect lesions which are precancerous which could develop into mouth cancer and stop it from forming at the earliest stage possible when they are easier to remove and be cured. Found at their earliest stages, patients who are diagnosed with oral cancers have a survival rate of 80-90%!!
