Sometimes, the deep pits and grooves of back teeth can trap food that’s difficult to remove through regular flossing or brushing. Thankfully, dental sealants can offer patients a valuable layer of extra protection against these cavity-causing components. By painting this tough, plastic sealant material over your tooth enamel, we can significantly reduce your chances of infection. While sealants are typically applied to a child’s first permanent teeth, our team at Vienna Smiles may also recommend them for adults in certain situations.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Do you struggle with facial pain, morning headaches, or teeth that look and feel worn down? You may be suffering from bruxism, which is more commonly known as teeth grinding. This is a common habit, and one that can be particularly hard to break, especially if you only experience it while sleeping. Dr. Barakat and Dr. Bobbio can provide much-needed relief with a nightguard that is worn comfortably while you sleep. By relying on this personalized barrier, patients enjoy healthier teeth, a better quality of life, and full nights of peaceful rest.
Close to half of all sports injuries involve the face, which is why our Vienna, VA, practice strongly recommends the use of mouthguards (also known as sportsguards) when you participate in football, basketball, hockey, baseball, or any other sport that involves contact. We can create a comfortable, custom-made solution that fits your unique smile perfectly and keeps your teeth safe so that you can focus on doing your best with the rest of your team. Studies have shown that wearing a sportsguard can even reduce the severity of concussions!
Oral Cancer Screenings
Although oral cancer may not be as well-known as cavities or periodontal disease to most patients, it is still a destructive and dangerous condition that requires immediate attention. That’s why our practice offers oral cancer screenings as a vital part of our in-depth check-ups for adults. We’ll carefully scan your mouth for any possible signs of cancerous cells, including color changes in the soft tissue, lumps or thickened areas, or a non-healing sore. If we find an area that seems suspicious, we can help you move forward with a biopsy and further treatment as quickly as possible.
Periodontal disease is one of the most common health conditions negatively affecting people today. Dr. Barakat and Dr. Bobbio take this very seriously, which is why checking for the presence of periodontal disease is such a significant part of regular check-ups. If there is a sign of gum disease, we offer multiple treatment options designed to revitalize your oral health. Read More
