Preventive Dentistry in Southampton, PA
Preventive Dentistry Services
Our dentist at Sleek Smile Studio will look beneath and between your teeth for symptoms of cavities, such as weakening of enamel and dentin. She’ll also look for signs of gum disease, such as swelling, redness, or sores.
When you come to an appointment with Dr. Paola Bukovcan for your six-month appointment, she will use specific instruments to remove sticky plaque and hard tartar deposits from the surfaces of your teeth above your gums during a normal dental cleaning.
Fluoride treatments by professionals at Sleek Smile Studio normally only take a few minutes. Fluoride might be applied as a gel, foam, or varnish. Depending on your oral health, Dr. Bukovcan might recommend fluoride treatments every 6 to 12 months.
To prevent tooth decay, a thin, plastic coating is applied to the surface of the teeth, mainly the rear teeth (premolars and molars). The sealant attaches swiftly to the teeth’s depressions and grooves, providing a protective covering over each tooth’s enamel.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Dr. Paola Bukovcan will examine the inside of your mouth for red or white patches, as well as mouth sores, during an oral cancer screening exam. Sleek Smile Studio’s professionals will also feel the tissues in your mouth with gloved hands to look for lumps or other abnormalities. Dr. Bukovcan may also look for lumps in your throat and neck.
