Lewiston Preventive Dentistry

You don’t have to be an adult to need help with your smile. That’s why our Lewiston office is happy to offer preventive care to whole families. We’re dedicated to helping adults and children alike through routine cleanings and so much more. Our family and preventive services include:

Oral Hygiene & Teeth Cleanings

For a truly healthy smile, we recommend visiting Androscoggin Dental Group every six months for a professional cleaning. A traditional toothbrush and floss are excellent tools for helping you keep bacteria and plaque away from your smile, but certain parts of the mouth are harder to clean than others. With our advanced tools, we can help you clean areas that are normally hard to reach. Not only that, we can help you clean them more thoroughly. You won’t believe how fresh your smile will feel after a routine cleaning at our Lewiston office.

As part of your cleaning appointment, we’ll also complete a thorough exam to assess your health. Outside of a routine cleaning, an oral exam is your best defense against problems like tooth decay and gum disease. During your visit, one of our experienced dentists will complete a full oral exam to determine exactly how your smile is doing. Not every patient needs advanced care, but those who do should receive help as quickly as possible to keep a simple problem from becoming more complex.

Following your cleaning and exam, your dentist will talk to you about the results and explain your treatment options. If you have questions about anything we recommend, don’t hesitate to let us know. We never want any patient to commit to a plan she doesn’t understand. We’ll happily answer your questions or elaborate on any detail.

Dental Sealants

Does your smile need a little extra protection from decay? We can help you defend your smile with dental sealants. This effective service only takes minutes to complete but can provide up to 10 years of protection. Sealants are applied as a liquid along the chewing surfaces of teeth, where pits and grooves can harbor bacteria, and then are hardened into a thin layer of plastic. Once in place, your sealants will physically shield your teeth from decay-causing bacteria.

Mouthguards & Sportsguards

If you struggle with frequent headaches, difficulty chewing, or pain in your neck, back, or shoulders, you may struggle with TMJ dysfunction. This neuromuscular problem is the result of malocclusion (or misaligned teeth) and can be corrected with a custom-made mouthguard. A sportsguard, meanwhile, is a special appliance designed to protect an athlete’s teeth while he or she is active. It’s an essential piece of equipment for anyone playing contact sports, but even athletes who don’t play a contact sport should consider wearing one.

Nightguards for Bruxism

If you struggle with unconscious teeth grinding, our Lewiston office can help you experience relief with a custom-made nightguard. Unconscious teeth grinding, known as bruxism, can seriously damage the chewing surfaces of teeth and lead to uncomfortable symptoms, like headaches and pain the neck, back, or shoulders. It can also lead to problems with TMJ dysfunction. A nightguard will improve your health and wellbeing by preventing your teeth from grinding together.
