Here at Westminster Dental Care, we are proud to offer the very best dental cleanings near Westminster, CO - and beyond! We firmly believe that the majority of dental issues can be prevented with proper care and education.
By scheduling regular dental checkups and professional teeth cleanings, you are partaking in some aspect of preventive care. While inspecting and cleaning your mouth, we will recognize signs of problems or potential problems. Upon inspection, we will notify you of any warning signs and subsequently, provide you with the information necessary to combat some of these signs.
We offer a full spectrum of the top preventive dentistry services including:
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
Catching a tooth-related issue early on can be instrumental to its treatment. This approach can help prevent major issues from arising down the line, and also help to reduce some of those issues if possible. It is encouraged to get a dental check-up every year, but if you have more oral health issues, it is suggested to get check-ups more often.
Gum Disease Treatment
Do you suffer from tooth pain, red and swollen gums, or consistent bad breath? If so, you may have gum disease, a treatable but potentially serious condition that can adversely affect your total body health. To keep your mouth healthy, Dr. McKnight, your local Westminster dentist, may recommend more frequent appointments and deep cleanings.
Our team always views tooth extractions as the last option, but if it is something that you are facing, we'll make the process as simple and painless as possible. Following your tooth extraction, we'll offer a tooth replacement solution that's appropriate for your unique smile.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Are you experiencing pain in the back of your mouth? If you or your child are in the late teen years or early 20s, it may be time to get the wisdom teeth removed. Fortunately, we extract wisdom teeth right here, in-house. Dr. McKnight even extracts impacted wisdom teeth, too!
Westminster Dental Care exclusively uses digital x-rays as part of our preventive and diagnostic services. Digital x-rays are preferred over traditional dental x-rays because they offer more thorough results and emit less radiation.
X-rays can be an excellent way to help diagnose oral health problems, but an intraoral camera takes it a step further. Dr. McKnight uses our intraoral camera to examine areas of our patients' mouths that x-rays can’t show.
Teeth-Strengthening Mineral Application
We use a teeth-strengthening mineral application on patients of all ages, but especially those in their younger years. This painless paste reinforces the tooth enamel, protecting it from dangerous, cavity-causing bacteria.
Desensitizing Treatments For Sensitive Teeth
Do you suffer from sensitive teeth? Dr. McKnight will first examine your smile to ensure that an underlying problem isn't causing the issue. From there, he will prescribe a desensitizing treatment designed for fast relief and more pleasant mealtimes.
Halitosis, otherwise known as chronic bad breath, could be a sign of a serious dental condition, like gum disease. Our team will thoroughly assess your concerns, treating the root cause instead of just the symptoms.
Athletic Mouth Guards
Athletic mouth guards are a "must" for both adults and children who are involved in sports. They help protect the smile from potential impact - and can even lower the chances of concussions!
