Many patients only visit the dentist when they sense something is wrong. With regular checkups, the staff at Dr. Mark Yeung Dental Office can catch changes in your oral health before they become a major problem. Cavities and periodontal diseases not only disrupt your schedule and cause pain, but they can also be expensive to treat. That’s why an ounce of preventative dentistry is worth more than a pound of fillings!
Checkup Procedures from Our Office
When you schedule a checkup with our office, some of the preventative procedures we may recommend and perform include:
Protect Your Teeth with Mouthguards
Sports and nighttime teeth grinding (bruxism) can really take a toll on your tooth enamel. Fortunately, any potential damage can be greatly minimized with the use of protective mouthguards. If you play sports, grind your teeth at night or wake up with jaw pain in the morning, talk to Dr. Yeung about mouthguards during your next visit.
