Cleanings & 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 Cleanings & Exams
Dental SealantsSealants are generally used to help prevent tooth decay on the biting surfaces of back teeth (molars). The natural grooves of these teeth can trap food that can resist casual brushing and rinsing. Read More About Dental Sealants
Periodontal DiseaseOne 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 Periodontal Disease

Night GuardsA night guard is a common treatment for bruxism. It is a device that is made to be worn in your mouth, specifically over your teeth, while you sleep. It resembles a sports mouth guard in appearance. The function of the night guard is to absorb the impact of grinding and clenching. By absorbing the impact, the night guard takes the pressure off of your teeth, your jaws, and your temporomandibular joints. Read More About Night Guards.

Fluoride TreatmentTaking good care of our teeth is something we take pride in, and when we sit down in the exam chair, we only expect good news when it comes to the integrity of our tooth enamel. Unfortunately for many people, no matter how well we do when it comes to oral health sometimes the dentist will notice a soft spot or an area where a cavity seems to be forming. Here at Harry Albers DDS, we have an excellent solution to helping prevent these issues when combined with the care you are already providing for your teeth. Read More About Fluoride Treatment.
Tooth ExtractionFor many people, their greatest fear about going to the dentist is finding out they are going to lose a tooth. Even with preventative measures such as fillings, crowns, and caps, it would be great to know those efforts were enough to keep your tooth firmly in its socket. Unfortunately, sometimes there is no other choice and extraction is the only option in keeping your mouth at its healthiest. We know it is not the best news to hear, which is why we at Harry Albers DDS want to help you get through the process as comfortable as possible. Read More About Tooth Extraction.
