Preventive Care & Cleanings
At Orion Lakes Family Dentistry, we are known for our broad service list, but the heart and soul of our practice lies in our preventive care offerings. When you visit us for your prescribed cleanings, checkups, imaging, and more, you give your teeth and gums a fighting chance against damaging decay, crowding, and tooth loss.
No matter your age or condition, Dr. Verrelli and his friendly hygiene team are here to ensure that you have the right tools to stay healthy in between appointments.
Our Lake Orion dental office offers a full service list focused on the power of preventive care. We offer:
Professional Teeth Cleanings
Professional teeth cleanings are designed to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. Dr. Verrelli follow guidelines developed by the American Dental Association and recommends that most patients come in for a professional teeth cleaning twice-yearly. If you are diagnosed with gum disease or other oral health problems, he may suggest more frequent cleanings and examinations.
Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease can wreak havoc on not only your oral health, but also your total body health. If you suffer from swollen, red, bleeding gums, or abscesses, you could be at a higher risk for diabetes, heart disease, stroke, premature births, and more. Dr. Verrelli uses the latest dental technologies for comfortable deep cleanings that efficiently target tooth decay.
Our Lake Orion dental office exclusively uses digital x-rays during our comprehensive dental examinations. Digital x-rays quickly and painlessly produce enhanced computer images of the teeth, gums, and other oral structures. Even better, digital x-rays emit less radiation than traditional dental x-rays.
X-rays can be an excellent way to help diagnose oral health problems, but an intraoral camera gives Dr. Verrelli an even more in-depth view of the teeth and gums. At Orion Lakes Family Dentistry, we use our intraoral camera to take advanced images of the teeth and gums that digital x-rays won’t show.
Athletic Mouth Guards
Created in-house by Dr. Verrelli himself, our custom athletic mouth guards are designed for both adults and children. We typically recommend them to patients who are involved in athletics – from football to cycling, and beyond. Not only do mouth guards help prevent oral injuries, they also reduce the risk of concussions!
