We offer the following preventive care services at our Naples, FL dental office:
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
To maintain your optimal oral health, Dr. Matonti recommends that all patients receive dental cleanings at least twice a year to prevent disease and other dental health issues from occurring. Depending on the current state of your oral health, she may recommend more frequent, targeted cleanings. Dr. Matonti will spend about an hour with you examining your teeth, discussing your health history, reviewing your x-rays and images with you, and learning about your smile goals.
After your time with Dr. Matonti, your hygienist will perform a thorough, state-of-the-art dental cleaning. For dental cleanings, our team uses the latest dental tools to provide rapid, comfortable care, eradicating plaque along the way. Afterward, they will polish the teeth to help remove stains and discoloration. In some instances, we may recommend an additional fluoride treatment to help strengthen the teeth even further, or halitosis treatment if you need help treating consistently unpleasant breath.
Oral Cancer Screenings
As part of every exam, Dr. Matonti checks for signs of oral cancer, and asks questions that help determine your risk level for developing it in the future. She’ll visually inspect the inside of your mouth, feel the tissue inside of your mouth, and examine your throat and neck. This allows us to keep you safe, since early detection is essential in these cases.
Night Guards For TMJ Pain
Do you grind your teeth (bruxism) while you sleep? If you do, it can lead to headaches, TMJ, and uneven tooth wear. These issues are potentially harmful to your overall well-being, the health of your jaw, and the function of your bite. To preserve your healthy teeth and correct the problem, Dr. Matonti offers custom-made night guards.
Mouthguards For Athletics
For patients who are involved in any type of sports or physical activity, it's important that you protect your smile! Our team recommends insuring your smile against oral trauma with a simple athletic mouthguard. Our mouthguards are customized for each and every patient, providing superior protection of the teeth, and even protection against concussions.
Desensitizing Treatments For Sensitive Teeth
When patients are sensitive to hot and cold, they can start to avoid certain foods or drinks. If you find yourself changing your diet because of the discomfort or pain caused by over-sensitive teeth, then our team has a solution for you! After ruling out anything serious, Dr. Matonti will apply a special paste designed to minimize your sensitivity for months. She may even provide recommendations on how you can keep your teeth from becoming sensitive in between regular appointments.
