Why Choose Grand Dental – South Elgin for Preventive Dentistry?


Dental Checkups

If you want to maintain better oral health as you age, it’s essential that you keep your six-month dental checkups. These visits allow Dr. Siewert to examine your teeth, gums, and other nearby oral structures for cavities, gum disease, or abnormalities that may point to oral cancer. With our focus on prevention and early detection, we will identify problem areas and recommend appropriate treatment options so that we can help to better protect and improve the state of your smile.

Dental Cleanings

Along with six-month dental checkups, you can also expect dental cleanings. Focusing on the status of your teeth and gums, our qualified dental hygienists will remove plaque and tartar from your teeth to reduce the possibility of cavities and gum disease. This approach allows you to maintain a healthier smile while also avoiding the risk of bone or tooth loss, bleeding gums, and serious problems that can arise throughout the body (i.e., negative cognitive decline, heart disease, diabetes, etc.).

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is a natural mineral that many dentists turn to for optimal protection. Found in various products, foods, and even tap water, it works to remineralize teeth and safeguard against dental decay. Fluoride treatment is safe for children and adults; however, those who are prone to developing cavities will find it most beneficial.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer takes the life of one individual each hour in the United States. Without early detection, it can progress and be difficult, if not impossible to effectively treat. Lumps, discolored patches of tissue, and even asymmetrical facial features can all be indicators of a more serious problem – one that requires additional testing from an outside physician. Our team will not only check your mouth and nearby facial structures for abnormalities but also recommend ways to lower your risk of oral cancer.


Hand holding a white nightguard

Teeth grinding and clenching commonly occur when you’re experiencing stress. If allowed to persist, it can lead to temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) and cause you to suffer from worn-down tooth enamel. With a custom mouthguard provided by Grand Dental – South Elgin, we can keep teeth from grinding against each other while you’re asleep. The uniquely designed barrier safeguards smiles so that tooth enamel remains intact and untouched and jaw pain decreases.

TMJ Treatment

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) can be a debilitating condition that results in fatigue, disappointment, and discomfort. Often caused by a misaligned bite, bruxism, or even facial trauma, the effects of chronic jaw pain can make day-to-day life more challenging. Various difficulties can arise without proper care, which is why we provide TMJ Treatment in the form of occlusal splints that serve to minimize symptoms and produce more comfortable jaw movement over time.
