Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
It's strongly recommended that patients attend at least two routine checkups and cleanings at our dental office once a year, unless otherwise directed. These visits are crucial when it comes to achieving and maintaining optimal oral health throughout the years.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Bruxism (teeth grinding) often affects patients while they’re asleep, causing worn teeth, painful headaches, and other unpleasant symptoms. A nightguard from our Midland, TX dental office provides valuable protection for your smile, allowing you to rest easy throughout the night.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Tens of thousands of American adults are diagnosed with oral cancer this year, and only half of those people go on to live more than five years past this point. This disease can be so destructive because it’s often not caught until it has reached advanced stages, significantly reducing any hope for recovery. Dr. Drisdale and the rest of our team take this threat very seriously, which is why we make oral cancer screenings a necessary part of routine evaluations. If we locate suspicious, potentially precancerous areas within the mouth, we help you take the next step towards a concrete diagnosis.
From children to adults and grandparents, our team offers a wide array of treatments to keep your entire family’s oral health on the right track. Since we offer kid-friendly treatments alongside tooth replacement solutions, gum disease therapy, and cosmetic dentistry, you can schedule all of your loved ones’ appointments at the same time to avoid needing to travel across town to see multiple specialists.
