During a comprehensive exam, Dr. Trembath or Dr. Nagel will go in to get a baseline for your overall oral health. In this examination, they will test for certain diseases and get x-rays of your mouth to help them create an oral health roadmap tailored to your needs.
Dr. Trembath and Dr. Nagel use digital x-rays, panoramic x-rays, Digi Doc (an intraoral camera), and an Enamel Transilluminator to better diagnose the health of your teeth and mouth region. The Enamel Transilluminator is used to shine light and show cracks and deformities in your teeth.
We recommend that all of our patients attend a general hygiene appointment every six months to ensure the health of their teeth. In these dental hygiene sessions, we use a Cavitron for scaling and air polishing procedures. We also offer fluoride to children and adults alike.
Our team of hygienists and doctors is certified in laser dentistry. With laser dentistry, we can cut through hard tissue and soft tissue by using WaterLase (a technology that uses a mixture of water, air, and lasers). We can also safely remove connective tissues through a frenectomy procedure.
At Trembath Dentistry, we are all about prevention. That’s why we sometimes recommend dental sealants for certain patients. Dental sealants are a treatment used to effectively prevent early dental decay. A sealant is a thin coating that is painted onto the back teeth (molars) to prevent cavities.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Approximately 54,000 individuals are diagnosed with oral cancer in the U.S. every year. That’s why all of us at Trembath Dentistry take oral cancer screenings seriously. We do this by checking your mouth and gums for lumps or other abnormalities. Depending on your situation, we may use additional tests.
When it comes to periodontal therapy, we use the ARESTIN treatment for gum disease. ARESTIN is a type of medicine and is applied directly into the pockets between your gums and teeth. We also offer other similar procedures where we create a pouch in the gum with alloderm.
Even with brushing and flossing, plaque can accumulate and lead to cavities. Fluoride treatments are important in order to strengthen the enamel and prevent cavities in both kids and adults. That’s why we make fluoride treatments a part of your regular hygiene appointment — every time.
Sports & Night Mouthguards
We offer sports and nightguards to all of our patients that need them! Whether you are in a high-impact sport or are notorious for grinding your teeth at night, our mouthguards are sure to protect your most valuable asset: your smile.
At Trembath Dentistry, we are known for our ability to treat CPAP intolerant patients. We do this by prescribing a Great Lakes Appliance to our patients. We will need an MD diagnosis first and for you to undergo sleep studies, but after that, we can give you the CPAP alternative.
When you need emergency dental care, you need it NOW.
We understand that sometimes unforeseen dental situations pop up, that’s why we offer same-day emergency care, if possible. Whether you chipped your tooth or are experiencing other tooth pain, let us help you get back to enjoying life!
We only use the most up-to-date dental technology in our Thornton office. One of the most beneficial technologies we use is the Intraoral camera. We use this type of specialized camera to detect certain diagnoses early on and find the root of your tooth pain if you are experiencing a chronic toothache. We also utilize a 3D Printer for faster turnaround time for the patient with increased accuracy. Oral devices have a better fit more accurate and the production process is simplified due to in-office printing.
