What to Expect During Your Regular Dental Visit

Teeth Cleanings and Exams

If plaque isn’t cleared away during your daily oral hygiene routine, it can harden and become much more difficult to get rid of. During your regular checkup, our hygienist will provide you with thorough teeth cleaning, ensuring that each tooth is completely plaque-free.

We’ll examine your teeth for any signs of cavities, gum disease, decay, and other dental issues. Attending your regular six-month appointments will help prevent additional oral health problems, which will help you save money and avoid invasive treatments down the line.

Why X-Rays Are Important

During your dental exam, we’ll perform a thorough visual inspection of your teeth and gums. While this can be useful for detecting problems, some dental issues may go undetected. Dental X-rays can show us these issues that are difficult to see before they develop further.

Our office is equipped with digital X-ray machines that deliver immediate results and significantly reduce your radiation exposure. Since we can examine the X-rays for signs of cavities or oral disease right away, we’ll be able to provide quicker and more effective treatment.

Oral Cancer Screening

Dr. Bobbitt performs oral cancer exams during each routine dental visit to our Nashua office. Screenings are a precautionary measure taken to detect any signs of cancer in the early stages. This allows us to identify symptoms early on and increase the likelihood of a full recovery.

During an oral cancer screening, we’ll examine your face, neck, lips, oral cavity, and the inside of your nose to determine if there are any areas of concern. If we find a potential issue, we can collect a sample and send it to a laboratory for testing. Regular oral cancer screenings can help give you peace of mind by making sure you’re in the clear.

How We Can Protect Your Oral Health

Periodontal (Gum Disease) Therapy

When bacteria infect your teeth, cavities form. But when bacteria infect your gums, the result is periodontal disease. Gum disease is common, but if left untreated, it can be incredibly harmful to your teeth and result in severe oral health problems.

Luckily, Dr. Bobbitt can help you reverse your gum infection with a variety of effective solutions. Our practice offers non-surgical therapy and surgical care, including grafting, depending on your needs. Learn more about periodontal disease symptoms and treatment options.

Oral Surgery

When everything goes wrong, oral surgery can help you. Dr. Bobbitt does everything he can to preserve your natural teeth, but sometimes it’s necessary to remove unhealthy teeth or perform restorative surgeries for the good of your smile.

Learn how Dr. Bobbitt can keep you comfortable during your surgery and help you recover your beautiful smile with ease.

Endodontic (Root Canal) Treatment

When harmful bacteria aren’t stopped in their tracks by regular at-home hygiene or professional cleanings, they can reach the very center of your tooth. The root canal houses important tissues and sensitive nerves that can become extremely painful when infected.

Root canal therapy can remove the infection completely while preserving your natural tooth. Learn how this effective treatment can relieve your pain.

TMJ/TMD Treatment

Does your jaw pop or click when you chew food? This could be a sign of a more serious jaw issue with your temporomandibular joints or TMJ. TMJ disorders (TMD) affect the opening and closing of your jaw, often resulting in jaw pain and headaches similar to migraines.

Dr. Bobbitt will work with you to find the source of your TMD and create a customized treatment plan that works for you. Learn more about TMD and how your jaw problems can be corrected.

Splint Therapy

Splints can do many different things: from Sports Mouthguards that help to prevent concussions and tooth trauma while playing sports, to Night Guards that protect you from tooth injury and jaw pain caused by teeth grinding or jaw clenching (a common issue that often affects patients without their awareness) and Sleep Apnea splints that help you breathe freely while asleep. Every splint has specific attributes and, despite common erroneous thinking, is NOT interchangeable.

Sports Dentistry

Your teeth could be at risk if you’re playing contact sports or enjoy activities such as snowboarding, martial arts, soccer, basketball, skateboarding, volleyball⎼just about any sport that has a risk of collision. Learn how Dr. Bobbitt can create a customized, sport-specific, comfortable mouthguard that will suit your needs and protect your smile.
