At Alaska Center for Dentistry, we offer a unique range of preventative care services at our Wasilla, AK general dentistry. Our team emphasizes the power of preventive care and effective oral hygiene habits to protect your smile for life.
During your regular cleaning appointment, our team will thoroughly assess your teeth and gums for any signs of gum disease, oral cancer, or tooth decay. If we see anything concerning, we will work with you to come up with a personalized treatment plan!
Alaska Center for Dentistry offers a full spectrum of general dentistry and preventive dental services, including:
Professional Teeth Cleanings
Dental prophylaxis is a cleaning procedure that thoroughly cleans the teeth. It is an important preventive measure to help stop the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease. We recommend our orally healthy patients come in for a dental cleaning twice a year.
Experiencing jaw pain, headaches or facial soreness? Protect your smile from excessive wear caused by jaw clenching and grinding. Our team is here to alleviate your TMJ pain through the use of custom bite guards and medicinal treatments.
Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of their neighbors. While extraction is always a last resort, it is sometimes a necessary treatment. To help make your extractions comfortable and pain-free, we offer a range of safe sedation options.
The best time to have wisdom teeth removed is during a patient's late teenage years or early twenties. If your wisdom teeth have not started to erupt, we will use x-ray imaging to locate them and determine if it’s time to have them removed.
Seal off deep grooves in the molars that are vulnerable to tooth decay with this inexpensive and effective preventive treatment. Dental sealants guard against cavities by forming a “shield” over the enamel of your teeth, keeping out bacteria and acids. Ask about pediatric dental sealants for your kids as well!
Teeth-Strengthening Mineral Application
Mineral treatment is used to help support healthy tooth enamel. This treatment can re-mineralize weak areas of tooth enamel, keeping them more resilient against bacteria.
Desensitizing Treatments for Sensitive Teeth
We use a special paste that works to desensitize the area immediately. Come back every three months for a touch up!
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is a serious condition that may occur even in patients who don't smoke or chew tobacco. At Alaska Center for Dentistry, we provide oral cancer screenings as part of our regular checkups.
