General Dentistry Will Keep Your Smile Healthy

Good oral hygiene habits are the best way to keep your teeth healthy and avoid complicated and costly procedures like root canals. And regular dental exams and cleanings at Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC in Crown Point, IN, are two of the most important oral hygiene habits.

We offer other general dentistry services to keep your teeth in top condition too, including preventive care like dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Dr. Mark Van Buskirk and Dr. Michael Krischke can even help you beat uncomfortable conditions like dry mouth and halitosis.

To make an appointment for a dental exam or another general dentistry service, call Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC at 219-641-3422.

From Dental Cleanings to Mouthguards, We Keep Your Mouth Healthy

Whether it’s been six months or six years since your last dental exam, our dentists will give you a thorough once-over. We use some of the latest technology, such as sophisticated cavity detectors that help us find decay in its earliest stages when it’s easiest to treat. They’ll check you not just for cavities but also for problems like gum disease and oral cancer. During your exam, we’ll clean plaque from your teeth, focusing especially on areas that are tough to reach with a toothbrush and floss at home.

Other preventive services include:

  • Dental sealants to protect tough-to-clean back teeth from decay. Our dentists use an air abrasion technique to apply the sealants for a durable bond that should last years.
  • Fluoride treatments to fight cavities.
  • Nutritional counseling to help you make dietary changes to improve your oral health and overall health.
  • Custom mouthguards to protect your teeth from grinding or to help you get a better night’s rest by keeping your airway open while you sleep. We can also fit you for a mouthguard to wear during athletic activities.

Halitosis (bad breath) is often caused by dry mouth. Our dentists can help determine the cause of your dry mouth and provide products that offer relief. Left untreated, dry mouth can make you more susceptible to tooth decay.

And because you can’t have healthy teeth without healthy gums, we screen for gum disease during every dental exam. If you have gum disease, we’ll treat it with a deep cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing.
