It’s not uncommon for people to assume that since we’re a specialty practice, we don’t see “normal” dental patients — but we do! Our goal is to help you achieve optimal oral health and keep your teeth for life. To do that, we provide essential family dentistry therapies such as:
Comprehensive Dental Exams
Your initial exam and routine checkups with Dr. Molgard allow him to carefully monitor the integrity of your teeth and existing restorations. If and when any concerns are noted, he will review all of his findings and recommendations with you, so that you can co-plan the necessary course of action to address those problems.
Preventive Teeth Cleanings
To keep your smile healthy and bright, we recommend a preventive teeth cleaning every six months. One of our Registered Dental Hygienists will work closely with you to discuss any concerns that you may have about the health or maintenance of your teeth and gums.
Our Spokane dental office provides non-surgical periodontal therapy to manage and prevent tooth loss. A periodontal screening is conducted at each hygiene appointment to make sure any symptoms are recognized when the disease is in its early stages.
Sleep Apnea Appliances
If you are under the care of a sleep physician, Dr. Molgard can assist you in creating a customized oral sleep appliance that naturally opens your airway for improved oxygen flow. A sleep study will be necessary both before and after appliance therapy.
Bite Guards for Bruxism
Chronic clenching and grinding can cause damage to restorations, break teeth, and even contribute to TMJ disorder. Wearing a custom-fitted bite splint or guard can protect your teeth and jaw from excessive strain.
Restorative Tooth Fillings
Diagnosing tooth decay early means it’s possible to restore your bite without more invasive forms of therapy. Dr. Molgard prefers to use composite (white) tooth fillings in most cases, which complement both the function as well as appearance of affected teeth.
