Dr. Baioni and his team at Peak Dental Care are primarily focused on preventive dentistry, which aims to spot the earliest signs of oral health problems, like cavities, and treat them before they can progress into more serious issues, like tooth infections. Not only will preventive dentistry in our Pea Ridge, AR dental office save you money in the long-run, but it will also preserve your complete and healthy smile so you can enjoy it for a lifetime.
Even if you’re diligent about brushing and flossing at home, visiting our team for bi-annual checkups and cleanings is a crucial step towards maintaining good oral health. During these appointments, Dr. Baioni will take X-rays of your mouth and conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and gums to identify any symptoms of oral health issues that may need to be addressed. Afterward, he will thoroughly clean and polish your teeth, leaving your smile feeling rejuvenated and healthy by the time you leave our dental office.
Oral cancer is a dangerous disease if it isn’t diagnosed and treated at its earlier stages. In an attempt to keep his patients healthy, Dr. Baioni conducts oral cancer screenings using an intraoral camera at each checkup and cleaning in search of any common signs of the disease. If we do spot anything out-of-the-ordinary or suspicious, we’ll refer you for additional testing so you can quickly receive any necessary treatment.
Do you or your child play contact sports that could put your smile in harm’s way? Our team offers customized, durable acrylic nightguards that are specially designed to comfortably fit in your mouth as you run, jump, and throw. Not only can they prevent trauma from damaging or knocking out a tooth, but they can also provide protection for your jaw and jaw joints, minimizing your risk of experiencing chronic pain or discomfort later in life.
If you wake up with a thumping headache, notice that your back molars are worn-down, or experience extreme dental sensitivity, it could be caused by a condition known as bruxism, or the nightly grinding and clenching of your teeth as you sleep. Not only can this put you at a high risk of breaking or damaging a tooth, but it can also make you more susceptible to cavity development. Our team offers customized nightguards that you can wear to shield your teeth from each other and keep you from experiencing a dental emergency.
Dr. Baioni and his team at Peak Dental Care are happy to provide children six years or older with preventive dental care, including checkups and cleanings, athletic sportsguards, and many other services. Our team knows that these early appointments are important, which is why we do everything we can to help children who visit us feel comfortable and have an enjoyable and fun experience. We’re also happy to collaborate with parents by recommending at-home oral hygiene products and other tips and tricks to help keep your child’s oral health on the right track.
