Your First Visit
Here in Lawrenceburg, our goal is to exceed patients’ expectations however we can, and this starts from your very first appointment. You’ll be offered a beverage upon arrival, and one of our friendly team members will give you a tour of the office and introduce you to the rest of the staff. After we’ve learned about you and your oral health, it will be time to meet Dr. Oyler and discuss your concerns with him personally. He’ll work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your needs and creates the personalized results you’re looking for. We want you to leave our office that day with plenty of new reasons to smile!
Check-ups & Cleanings
Dr. Oyler strongly recommends children and adults alike attend two check-ups and cleanings a year with our team, or one every six months. If you suffer from periodontal disease or 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 locate changes in your smile, identify 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 areas 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 offer flouride treatments to better protect your smile.
TMJ & Bruxism Care
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 other times, stress. With a customized nightguard from Dr. Oyler, patients recover from these conditions and get back to enjoying their best smile.
Adult Fluoride Treatments
Fluoride treatments are typically recommended for younger children, but they are also very beneficial for adults. Espescially 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.
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 sports stores, our team creates a personalized appliance that fits well, feels comfortable, and provides valuable protection against oral injury.
This state-of-the-art digital camera fits comfortably in the patient’s mouth and captures clear, real-time images of their smile. The intraoral camera helps us to do an even better job of examining your teeth. These magnified images allow Dr. Oyler to share how well your teeth are doing, point out specific concerns or better explain the scope of possible treatment options.
