"We had THE best dental experience with the kiddos here with Dr Burton and the staff. Both of my kids ages 8 and 3 have been raving about their visit all day and that gives me comfort in knowing we are getting the best care and peace of mind! I never thought I would say I am actually looking forward to all of our dental appts for them AND for me! " —Angela W.

Dr. Alicia Burton provides a variety of family dental care services. She is a family dentist near you that you can count on for general and preventive dental services, including:
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Dental Prophylaxis)
Dental prophylaxis is a professional teeth cleaning procedure that thoroughly cleans your teeth. It is an important preventive measure to help stop the progression of gingivitis and gum disease. We recommend our orally healthy patients schedule a professional dental hygiene appointment twice a year.
This teeth-strengthening mineral treatment is typically applied to your teeth following your regular hygiene appointment and is used to help support your healthy tooth enamel. This treatment can re-mineralize weak areas of tooth enamel, keeping them more resilient against bacteria and discourage cavities from forming.
Protective Dental Sealants
Seal off deep grooves in the molars that are vulnerable to tooth decay with this inexpensive and effective preventive treatment. Dental sealants guard against cavities by forming a “shield” over the enamel of your teeth, keeping out bacteria and acids. Ask about pediatric dental sealants for your kids as well!
If you or your child are involved in any type of sport or athletic activity, a custom-fitted mouthguard is one of your best pieces of insurance. Not only does an athletic mouthguard protect teeth, jaw, tongue, and teeth lining, it can also reduce the risk of concussion.
Desensitizing Treatments for Sensitive Teeth
Are you suffering from tooth sensitivity when you eat or drink? Tooth sensitivity is extremely common but can keep you from enjoying your favorite cold drinks or hot foods. If you're tired of dealing with overly sensitive teeth, ask Dr. Burton what options you have to treat tooth sensitivity at your next dentist appointment with us!
Oral Cancer Screening
Tobacco users aren’t the only ones who should be concerned about oral cancer. Oral cancer is a serious condition that may occur even in patients who don't smoke or chew tobacco. That’s why we provide oral cancer screenings as part of our regular checkups with all of our patients over the age of 18.
Clenching and grinding your teeth at night can cause headaches, TMJ, or jaw pain and can damage your teeth. Many times people are unaware they are clenching and grinding at night. If you are experiencing unexplained headaches or jaw pain, talk to us today about how a custom-designed nightguard might help.
These custom-designed oral appliances are made of durable plastic with a comfortable soft liner and are molded to comfortably fit your teeth.
Chronic halitosis affects more than 50 million people in the United States alone. Common halitosis remedies like mouthwashes and breath mints can mask the symptoms, but it may be possible to treat the root cause. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Burton to discuss your treatment options.
