At Prime Dental, we are happy to provide a broad range of services to our Tucson-area patients - from routine examinations to complex procedures performed using high-tech tools. Still, we take the greatest pride in offering general treatments that are safe, practical, and rooted in prevention.
Following guidelines established by the American Dental Association (ADA), we recommend a checkup every six months to stay ahead of any potential problems.
During your regular cleaning appointment, our team will thoroughly assess your teeth and gums for any signs of gum disease, oral cancer, or tooth decay. If we see anything concerning, we will discuss all treatment options and create a plan that fits with your unique lifestyle.
Prime Dental offers a full spectrum of general dentistry and preventive dental services, including:
Athletic Mouth Guards
If you are involved in any type of sports, a custom-fitted mouthguard is one of your best pieces of insurance. Not only does it protect teeth, it also reduces the risk of concussion. At Prime Dental, we use cutting-edge tools that help us make these mouth guards quickly and in-house.
TMJ Disorder Mouth Guards
Experiencing jaw pain, headaches or facial soreness? Protect your smile against excessive wear caused by jaw clenching and grinding with a mouth guard made specifically for you!
Extraction is a last resort, but sometimes it is necessary. Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of their neighbors. Anxious about your tooth extraction? Ask us about our safe sedation options.
Teeth-Strengthening Mineral Application
Mineral treatment is used to help support healthy tooth enamel. This treatment can re-mineralize weak areas of tooth enamel, keeping them more resilient against bacteria.
Desensitizing Treatments for Sensitive Teeth
Are your teeth sensitive to heat and cold? Dr. Kym uses a special desensitizing paste that works immediately. Come back every three months for a touch-up!
Professional Teeth Cleanings
Dental prophylaxis is a cleaning procedure that thoroughly cleans and polishes the teeth. This common treatment is an important preventive measure designed to help stop the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease. We recommend our orally healthy patients schedule a dental cleaning twice a year.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is a serious condition that may occur even in patients who don't smoke or chew tobacco. At Prime Dental, we provide oral cancer screenings as part of your regular checkups.
Our practice uses digital x-rays to produce enhanced computer images of our patient’s teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. Digital x-rays are key to early detection!
3D CT Scanning
3D CT scanning provides extremely accurate three-dimensional replicas of your oral anatomy. This technology proves especially useful when planning for dental implants or tooth extractions.
