Fort Myers, FL
At Tropic 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!
Dental cleaning at Tropic Dental helps you remove the hardened plaque deposits that have turned into calculus. We always advise our patients to have a professional dental cleaning every six months. Professional cleaning generally achieves cleaner teeth and mouth. However, our dentist will decide the type of cleaning you need depending on the situation of your teeth.
Anytime you visit Tropic Dental, we always insist that regular dental exam is important in maintaining both oral and overall health. We normally recommend two dental exams in a year to maintain oral health and enhance overall health. If you have specific oral problems, our specialist may recommend more frequent visits.
Here at Tropic Dental we believe regular oral cancer screening is essential, especially if you are predisposed to certain risk factors. Oral cancer screening is an examination of your mouth conducted by our dentists to check for any precancerous lesions or other conditions.
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.
If you participate in physical activities that put you at risk for dental trauma or injury, we strongly recommend a mouthguard. A mouthguard will protect your teeth and prevent dental emergencies. 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.
The temporomandibular joint or TMJ is the joint the connects the temporal bones of our skull to the jaw. Temporomandibular joint disorder or TMD is a condition that affects the muscles located on our jaws, primarily the temporomandibular joint. For those suffering from TMD, we here at offer safe and effective treatment given by our highly experienced team of dentists.
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.
