Dr. Douglas Trolley believes that routine check-ups are one of the best ways you can protect the health of your teeth and gums. Regular exams and cleanings can prevent advanced stages of tooth decay and gum disease, while procedures such as sealants and fluoride treatments can stop some dental issues before they have a chance to develop.
At Trolley Dental Care, we offer a variety of procedures and treatments that can help you keep your teeth, maintain good oral health, and serve as the foundation for a strong and beautiful smiles.
Dr. Trolley considers brushing and flossing twice a day, especially if using a Sonicare™ toothbrush and a Waterpik®, and professional dental cleanings twice a year essential for keeping your mouth healthy. Dental cleanings can be combined with your routine oral exam and help maintain your oral health, as well as prevent future dental issues.
Though fluoride treatments are most commonly associated with children, they can be just as beneficial for adults. Our professional-strength fluoride rinses can prevent tooth decay when performed twice a year. These rinses are much more powerful than over-the-counter fluoride products and can be used to protect your teeth between dental visits. For those patients with tooth sensitivity, fluoride can be used to help desensitize teeth and relieve symptoms.
Sealants are also frequently recommended for children, though they can offer effective cavity prevention for patients of any age. Used to cover the crevices along the chewing surface of the back teeth, sealants serve as an extra safety measure against cavities and bacteria growth.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer screenings are an important component to taking care of your teeth and gums. Since oral cancer does not exhibit symptoms in its earliest stages, screenings by a dentist can be essential to early detection. Using a VELscope® Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment System, screenings are painless, can be completed in about two minutes, and can be performed at the time of your routine oral exam
