Dental Hygiene & Cleanings

Dr. Oyler strongly recommends that children and adults alike attend two checkups and cleanings each year with our team, or one every six months. If you suffer from periodontal/gum disease or have an elevated risk for tooth decay, we may ask you to increase this frequency so our team can help you better manage your oral health.

These visits are crucial because they allow us to identify changes in your smile, find areas of damage at the earliest stages, and diagnose oral pain. Digital X-rays give us detailed views of the areas that can’t be seen with the naked eye, while an oral cancer screening may reveal cancerous or pre-cancerous tissues that need further attention. Your cleaning with one of our talented hygienists removes plaque and tartar from your teeth, leaving them feeling polished and refreshed. We also offer fluoride treatments to better protect your smile.

Nightguards for Bruxism and TMJ

Do your teeth appear damaged or worn-down with no understandable reason for it? Have headaches, facial pain, and sore jaw muscles become an ordinary part of your routine? They don’t have to be. These symptoms can be caused by teeth grinding (also known as bruxism) or TMJ disorder, a near-debilitating condition that occurs because of misaligned jaw joints and stress. With a customized nightguard from Dr. Oyler, patients can recover from these conditions and get back to enjoying their best smile.

Mouthguards/ Sportsguards

When you’re participating in a sport or athletic event, the last thing you want to focus on is whether or not your healthy smile will stay intact. That’s why Dr. Oyler recommends wearing a mouthguard from our Lawrenceburg practice. While it’s easy to find one-size-fits-all options in stores, our team can create a personalized appliance that fits well, feels comfortable, and provides valuable protection against oral injury.

Adult Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride treatments are typically recommended for younger children, but they are also very beneficial for adults, especially those who suffer from frequent decay, overly sensitive teeth, dry mouth, or developmental defects in their smile. The application of fluoride strengthens enamel through a process known as remineralization, reducing the damage caused by bacteria and acids.

Children’s Dentistry

When it comes to forming healthy oral habits, there’s no better time to start than childhood. We welcome growing smiles into our Lawrenceburg dental office and know how to help young patients feel comfortable. Our team is happy to give your child positive dental experiences and take the time to teach them proper brushing and flossing techniques. As your child grows and develops, you can count on our team to provide the oral care they need to have a strong, confident smile.
