In dentistry, doctors like Dr. Voller are constantly waging a war against the threat of oral infection. Thankfully, ozone treatment is an effective and holistic disinfectant method for keeping patients healthier and safer throughout the treatment process. Exposure to ozone gas can improve the success of many common procedures, including periodontal disease and tooth decay. It can also significantly reduce painful sensitivity and kill potentially dangerous bacteria on contact. Our patients in Kittanning enjoy the benefits of Ozone Therapy every day.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Dr. Voller will perform an oral cancer screening as part of your standard checkup. Early detection is one of the best ways to ensure successful treatment if you have the condition. Survival rates are higher when cancer is diagnosed in the first year and drop significantly if discovered later. For this, Dr. Voller will check your mouth, cheeks, and throat for any potential signs of oral cancer. If he finds something, he can also help guide you to get further attention as soon as possible.
Fluoride is an extremely helpful mineral that can do wonders for the strength of your teeth. That's why it's been added to the water supply for decades! Our team provides in-office fluoride treatment for both adults and children as a part of our preventive care. Not only can the presence of fluoride help prevent tooth decay by toughening up your natural enamel, it can even reverse it in some cases.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Bruxism, or unconscious teeth grinding, is a condition that affects as many as 1 in 3 people. It can severely wear down your teeth, making it more likely for them to break and fracture, as well as strain the sensitive joints in your jaw.
In order to treat bruxism, Dr. Voller can provide a customized nightguard. It is a small, customized mouthpiece you would wear each night to bed. It protects your teeth from the force of nighttime teeth grinding. With a nightguard, you can go to bed reassured that your smile is protected.
