Our Preventive Dentistry
Dr. Naik can give every member of your family individualized attention during preventive dentistry exams. Our Flint team performs examinations for patients during every stage in their life because everyone deserves comprehensive preventive dentistry that they can depend on. We have regular checkups and cleanings to maintain your oral health.
Our preventive dentistry team offers children’s dentistry as well. Dr. Naik sees children after their baby teeth have come in, which is generally around three years of age. Over the years, we’ll be able to provide fluoride treatment, apply dental sealants, and teach dental hygiene education to keep your child’s smile shining brightly.
If you or your child participates in a sport, let us know and we can create a custom-fitted athletic mouthguard. It’s a vital piece of protective gear, and should be worn during practices and games to reduce the chance of a dental injury or a concussion. Just ask about our athletic mouthguards during your next preventive dentistry appointment with Dr. Naik.
During your regular preventive exams, Dr. Naik will check for any signs of abnormal wear and tear. Our team will be able to tell if you are affected by bruxism, otherwise known as grinding and clenching your teeth at night. This habit is generally stress-induced and impossible to control during sleep. To protect your teeth, Dr. Naik can provide TMJ therapy with a custom nightguard. Patients can wear this at night to shield their teeth and keep smiles intact. Speak with Dr. Naik to learn if you would benefit from this preventive therapy.
