Family Dentistry at Bucktown Dental Associates
At Bucktown Dental Associates, we take exceptional care of your oral health. Below are some of the preventive dental services that our practice provides.
Cleanings And ExamsProfessional cleanings performed by a hygienist or dental assistant are as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Twice yearly dental check-ups and cleanings help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair. Read More About Dental Checkups

Periodontal CareOne of the best ways to keep your gums from bleeding when you come in for a cleaning is to floss regularly. Brushing your teeth before or after flossing is less important than whether you floss or not. Read More About Your Periodontal Health
Mouthguards And NightguardsBruxism (teeth grinding) can cause moderate to severe long-term damage to teeth. Constant grinding wears down the surface of the tooth, exposing the soft dentin beneath the enamel. This is why it's important to protect your teeth while you sleep by wearing a bite guard. When it comes to protecting your mouth, a mouthguard is an essential piece of athletic gear that should be part of your standard equipment from an early age.
