Comprehensive Exams

A detailed oral health assessment that includes a thorough check of your teeth, a periodontal (gum) evaluation, oral cancer screening, X-rays and intra-oral photos, TMJ and bite evaluation, and smile analysis. The primary aim of these evaluations is for our doctors to uncover any potential issues and proactively address them before they become bigger problems.

Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal therapy improves and maintains the health of your gums by fighting against the bacteria that causes gum disease. Coupled with meticulous home oral hygiene habits, attending your regular hygiene appointments is the ideal preventative measure against this disease. If your gums are unhealthy and unstable, we can prevent it from spreading and restore health with scaling and root planning (deep cleanings) and regular maintenance visits.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Our visual and physical exam of the oral cavity can identify any early signs of oral cancer. Your caring Bloomfield Hills dentist will check for any lumps, bumps, swelling, patches of color, or other lesions. If an abnormality is found, we’ll partner with other local colleagues to establish a proper diagnosis and help you if treatment is indicated.

Dental Sealants

A dental sealant is a thin plastic coating painted onto your tooth. This preventative measure fills in the pits and grooves on the biting surfaces of your back teeth, so food and plaque don’t become stuck. Sealants can dramatically reduce the risk of decay, and in turn, the chance of cavities developing.

Root Canals

When a tooth becomes severely damaged due to decay, fracture, or trauma, the nerve (pulp) can become highly inflamed or infected. During a root canal, bacteria is gently removed, and the infected root canal space is disinfected allowing the natural tooth to be saved. Afterward, the tooth is sealed with a filling and/or a crown for long-term protection. The pain is gone, the integrity of your tooth is restored, and you can resume your daily activities once again.

Nightguards (bitesplints) are protective appliances worn at nighttime to prevent teeth from wearing down, and reduce harm to the muscles and jaw joint (TMJ) from clenching and grinding. Custom-fit athletic mouthguards protect your teeth from major trauma and can reduce the risk of concussions while playing contact sports.

Many of our patients who suffer from frequent headaches, debilitating migraines, and painful TMJ problems can achieve significant healing and relief with a properly designed and constructed customized bitesplint (biteguard,). Although often unaware, many people clench and grind their teeth causing or exacerbating these problems. Bitesplints and other adjunctive therapies can return comfort and normalcy to a person’s life.

Dental cleaning

Bridget cleaned my teeth. She was friendly and professional. It was my first time with her. Dr. Hanson checked my teeth. Everything was fine and he's very professional. I've seen him since the beginning of his practice. I definitely recommend this dental practice.
