Your comprehensive exam is your passport to a smile journey where you’re in charge and we’re both your partner and guide. This is our time when we use our state-of-the-art technology to assess your current oral health and ensure your mouth is as healthy as possible. We’ll perform an in-depth oral cancer screening, digital x-rays, and assess any existing conditions.
Oral cancer is detectable to our highly-trained doctors who have a keen eye and can manually screen every patient. The goal with this form of cancer is the same as all other forms of the disease and that’s early detection. We make it a point to screen every patient at every visit for any precancerous, cancerous, or abnormal oral tissue.
We take technology seriously at Lowery Dental, having invested in some of our industry’s most advanced tools and materials found anywhere else. We rely on high-resolution digital and panoramic images or x-rays to help us create a more comprehensive and custom treatment for you and your dental needs with less radiation than traditional x-rays.
We don’t mess around when it comes to tooth decay, so we use innovative wave or DIAGNOdent technology to easily detect and directly diagnose decay in your tooth’s enamel long before it is even visible to us using an x-ray. This makes DIAGNOdent one of our most treasured preventive dentistry tools to help protect natural teeth.
You’re going to love our intraoral cameras because they give you an exact look at what our dentists are seeing inside of your mouth. We rely on this useful technology to pinpoint small cracks or other dental issues before they become something larger and more time-consuming to remedy. The more you know about what the dentist sees inside your mouth, the more informed decisions you can make
Forget about drilling, and start loving your dental treatments with our special soft tissue laser, an excellent alternative to cutting and contouring. Soft tissue laser treatment is more comfortable for patients of all ages and can be used on little ones who need relief from issues with tongue ties or frenectomies.
When you come to Lowery Dental every six months for your cleaning, you get to meet with one of our hygiene experts. They know how to keep you and your smile strong and healthy for years to come. They have high-tech Piezo and Cavitron ultrasonic scalers to make your cleaning more comfortable and enjoyable at every level.
There’s no room for periodontal or gum disease in anyone’s oral health. When your gums aren’t healthy, it puts the rest of your mouth at risk, especially your teeth which can become loose or fall out. We offer periodontal patients a chlorhexidine rinse to help fight plaque and bacteria while promoting healing.
Do you have teeth that are too sensitive, especially to hot and cold temperature changes? Fluoride treatments can be a great solution to help your teeth grow stronger. We use a topical fluoride applied directly to your smile that can help to lessen the rate of dental decay. We recommend fluoride for kids at every visit, and adults as needed.
Do you have a “bruxer” in your house or someone who likes to grind their teeth while they sleep? Do you have a budding athlete whose teeth you desperately want to protect? Let us create a custom mouthguard for you and your family to ensure that you have both a proper professional and comfortable fit.
We understand that going to the dentist isn’t always at the top of your list as a “fun” thing to do. We also know that dental anxiety and fear is a very real thing. If you’re nervous about seeing the dentist, please talk to us about your safe sedation dentistry options featuring nitrous oxide that can easily take away your anxieties.
Are you someone who constantly struggles with jaw pain? Have you been dealing with ongoing headaches or migraines? It could be related to your temporomandibular joint or TMJ. We want to help you feel relief using centric relation therapy, special splints to help align your jaw for constant comfort, or Botox injections to help target tight, sore muscles in and around your jaw, neck, and forehead.
Botox® is widely known as a cosmetic treatment to help aid in the reduction of facial wrinkles such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. But did you know that Botox is also used therapeutically to help treat people who suffer from TMJ/TMD symptoms including bruxism and facial muscle pain as well as a condition called excessive gingival display, more commonly referred to as a gummy smile?
