At Beelman Dental, our patients come first! Dr. Beelman and his team want to hear your concerns, calm your fears, and share all the information we can that will keep your family healthy and smiling.
While we provide a long list of restorative and cosmetic services, prevention is at the heart of our Bedford dental practice. Preventive activities and gum disease by regular oral hygiene habits and dental cleaning appointments help Dr. Beelman fight and prevent the bacteria that affects your total body health. We're determined to provide the best preventive dentistry services near Bedford and beyond because we understand the close link between oral health and keeping the rest of the body healthy!
Using state-of-the-art dental tools and technologies, our team delivers a long list of gentle, personalized preventive care to catch potential health issues early on. We provide the following preventive care services:
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
When busy schedules get demanding, dental hygiene routines can be one of the first priorities pushed to the bottom of the list. Fortunately, our outstanding dental hygiene team understands. At Beelman Dental, every team member is here to share knowledge, techniques, and tools to help you keep your smile clean and healthy between visits!
We recommend patients schedule a gentle, thorough professional cleaning at least twice a year to help remove unwanted stains and discoloration, and eliminate plaque or tartar you may have missed. We also offer teeth-strengthening mineral treatments for a little extra cavity protection.
Depending on the findings of your dental exam and the state of your oral health, our team may recommend more frequent, targeted cleanings.
Oral Cancer Screenings
In many cases, oral cancer is typically undetected and undiagnosed until its late stages. Beelman Dental stays on top of current dental research and technologies to identify the risk factors and early signs of oral cancer. Because we believe in regular oral cancer screenings as a priority for our patients, we provide oral cancer screening in each preventive appointment.
Nightguards For TMJ Pain
Beelman Dental believes a healthy smile is your greatest asset! If you or a family member are suffering from symptoms of TMJ like teeth grinding while you sleep (bruxism), Dr. Beelman will help protect your smile from uncomfortable effects of this condition, including headaches and uneven tooth wear. Our custom-made night guards are always carefully fitted to protect the alignment and bite function of your teeth and jaw.
Mouthguards For Athletics
Do you or your child stay active in contact sports? To protect your healthy smile, Dr. Beelman recommends using a custom-fitted mouthguard to protect your teeth, jaw, and head! Custom-made mouth guards for athletes are specially designed to provide the highest levels of both comfort and protection against oral injuries, potential tooth loss, and even concussion damage.
Sealants are thin coatings of plastic attached to the chewing surface of the back teeth. Because they cover the pits and grooves where cavities are most likely to form, sealants are known to decrease the likelihood of cavity progression.
Desensitizing Treatments For Sensitive Teeth
If you are sensitive to hot and cold, and you avoid particular foods or drinks because of this, the team at Beelman has a solution for you! After ruling out anything serious causes of the sensitivity, Dr. Beelman will apply a paste specially designed to relieve the sensitivity for months after your appointment!
