Though some people in Chesterfield, MO, may take it for granted, dentistry is an essential form of health care. When performed by a capable team like that at Chesterfield Valley Dental Group, it can significantly enhance your overall well-being. Strong teeth and gums ensure that you can eat nutritious food, and a smile you can show proudly is excellent for your mental health.

Conversely, gum disease and tooth decay can irritate other health conditions and make you feel worse. Our goal is to provide you with dental services that meet your individual needs. Here are three common treatments that we offer patients of all ages.

1. Teeth Exams and Professional Cleanings

The foundation of good dental care is preventative dentistry. Regular teeth examinations and cleanings are our best tools to build this foundation. Dr. Rahm combines his expert eye with leading-edge diagnostic tools to discover potential dental issues. For example, he may recommend a fluoride varnish or dental sealant to protect teeth prone to decay.

Your professional teeth cleaning is another weapon in the fight against tooth decay. Along with your solid at-home care routine that removes most plaque, some accumulations in hard-to-reach areas can’t resist our tools and expertise.

2. Nightguards and Mouthguards Protect Teeth

When it comes to tooth protection, a cost-effective and non-invasive solution is our custom-made mouth and night guards. For any activity that poses a risk to your teeth, a mouthguard can prevent potential damage, and ours provide an excellent fit and won’t interfere with breathing or speaking.

A nightguard can provide significant relief for patients who suffer from bruxism or teeth grinding while they sleep. This appliance fits your mouth and teeth and can stop premature and uneven tooth wear. In addition, if you have problems with your jaw joint or TMJ, a mouthguard can lessen symptoms and even reposition your jaw to relieve stress and painful inflammation.

3 – Professional Teeth Whitening for Dramatic Results

Our teeth whitening system is a quick and affordable way to improve your smile. We offer KöR Whitening, which works to remove stubborn stains safely, effectively, and without breaking the bank.

We also offer two teeth whitening options: custom take-home whitening trays and our in-office treatment. If you prefer to whiten at home, we provide guidance and a professional strength gel that you use at your convenience. However, for the quickest results, an in-office treatment may offer you many shades of whitening in a single appointment.
