Checkups & Cleanings
Our team strongly recommends that patients of all ages attend checkups and cleanings twice a year, or once every six months. By professionally reviewing your oral health on a routine basis, our team can provide you with valuable support that keeps smiles strong, healthy, and damage-free.
Gum Disease Therapy
Gum disease is a very common health problem – in fact, studies show that it’s the leading cause of tooth loss among adults in the United States. Thankfully, Dr. Weinman provides effective therapy options that can treat periodontal infections and revitalize the health of gum tissue.
All too often, patients fall victim to cavities that occur in the deep chewing grooves of back teeth, which can be tricky for many people (especially children) to keep clean through regular brushing and flossing. Placed dental sealants can provide simple, effective protection against the ongoing threat of decay.
If you’re regularly struggling with painful headaches or chronic jaw pain, bruxism (teeth grinding) may be the cause. In order to prevent the development of debilitating TMJ disorder and improve your overall quality of life, we encourage patients to visit Dr. Weinman for relieving therapy.
You regularly protect your head and elbows from injuries while playing your favorite sport – but what about your smile? Sports-related injuries make up a big percentage of common dental emergencies, which is why our Westfield team wants to help you minimize danger. Dr. Weinman can design a custom-made sportsguard that provides optimal protection and comfort to athletes of all ages.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer leads to the deaths of thousands of people every year, many of whom weren’t correctly diagnosed with the condition until their chances of recovery were slim. That’s why Dr. Weinman emphasizes the importance of routine screenings at every checkup. During this vital part of your appointment, he will carefully review your mouth, jaw, and neck for any signs that may point towards the presence of cancerous or pre-cancerous cells. If our team locates a cause for concern, we will assist you in taking the next steps toward a more complete diagnosis. The earlier oral cancer is identified, the greater chances are that you will experience a safe and successful recovery.
