When considering something as important as your oral and overall health and wellness, we think it’s best to start with the basics. When it comes to the essential dental care our patients need to keep their mouths maintained like well-oiled machines, twice-yearly checkups and hygiene appointments with Garrison Family Dentistry are a good place to begin. Keeping gum disease at bay helps prevent over 50 systemic diseases—and if you need extra help improving the condition of your teeth or gums, we offer deep cleanings, scaling and root planing. We’ll fight oral cancer with you by screening with each adult checkup—and when it comes to protecting your favorite grins, we make custom sports mouthguards for active folks and nightguards for the teeth grinders. When it comes to exceptional general dentistry, we’re here to help!
The easiest, most affordable, and most convenient way to a healthy mouth? Consistent oral hygiene! Every day, brush at least twice, floss at least once—and twice a year, keep your regular hygiene appointments with us for a thorough checkup and professional cleaning.
Gum disease is a shady scoundrel on the move—and who’s the boss? A secret society of over 50 systemic illnesses that include diabetes and heart disease. Fortunately, the only ammo you need are toothbrushes, floss, and your Smithville dental team! If you need some extra muscle, we’ve got scaling and root planing to help outrun the bad guys.
Oral cancer is another suspicious character our team battles alongside our patients. One of the fastest-growing types of cancer in the US today, oral cancer kills one American each hour—and like most cancers, early detection is critical for the best chance of survival. Each regular adult checkup includes a screening—schedule yours today!
Custom-fitted sports mouthguards are a worthy investment for kids and adults who participate. 2 MILLION teeth are knocked out during sports activities every year, and the costs of repairing each of those teeth can run into the five figures. Over-the-counter mouthguards fall out, don’t fit, and don’t last. Make it a point to guard those choppers!
Grinding your teeth (bruxism) is more common than you might think—it affects an estimated 10% of US adults, 15% of children, and 50% of the time, it runs in families. A custom-fitted nightguard can relieve jaw pain, decrease tooth sensitivity and reduce the severity of uneven or excessive tooth enamel wear.
