Dr. Khan and our Wayne team are committed to providing you and your family with exceptional general dentistry services. Learn about these treatments we offer.

Teeth Cleanings & Dental Exams

Coming in for your regular teeth cleanings and dental exams is a key factor in maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile. By visiting our office twice a year for these check-ups, you’re ensuring your teeth and gums don’t have to face problems in the future like gum disease, tooth decay, or even tooth loss.

Digital X-Rays

Another important part of your regular dental visits is receiving digital x-rays. Although these won’t need to be done twice a year like your teeth cleaning and exams, our team will use them at least once a year to check for any underlying issues.

With digital x-rays, we’re able to reduce the risk of radiation exposure while also improving our ability to diagnose potential dental problems. Digital x-rays have advanced the way we provide treatment to our patients and allows Dr. Khan to create a more precise treatment plan just for you.

Fluoride Treatments

During your biannual dental appointments, our team might also recommend fluoride treatments if you’re at a higher risk of developing cavities. Fluoride is usually given as a liquid rinse, gel, foam, or varnish to help build strong enamel.

It’s quick and easy and will leave your teeth feeling more durable than before. We may ask you to avoid eating or drinking for the first 30 minutes after to allow the fluoride to settle in.

Dental Sealants

Another preventive treatment we offer for cavities is dental sealants. This thin protective dental seal will help prevent dental caries from forming again after we’ve restored the tooth back to good health.

Generally, dental sealants are placed over the back molars since these teeth are used for chewing. This stops leftover food and bacteria from settling in the teeth after brushing and flossing

Nightguards for Bruxism

An extremely common disorder that millions of people experience today is bruxism, or teeth grinding and clenching. When stressed or even sleeping, many people will unknowingly grind or clench their teeth, causing them to wear down, feel sensitive, or be in pain.

Dr. Khan offers dental nightguards to help patients with bruxism. Similar to a sports mouthguard, a sufferer will wear these while they sleep to prevent them from grinding and clenching. During your consultation, we’ll create a custom mold of your teeth so it fits comfortably and is effective.

ARESTIN® Gum Treatment

Gum disease is an oral disease that can lead to tooth loss and other health complications if left untreated. Here at Village Dental, we use ARESTIN, a locally applied antibiotic that’s placed in a deep gum pocket to reduce the pocket depth.

With ARESTIN, we target the periodontal infection for up to months so your smile remains healthy even after your gums have recovered.

Oral Cancer Screenings

After you receive a proper deep cleaning at your regular check, Dr. Khan performs an oral cancer screening. These screening will look for any abnormalities or other signs of cancer in your mouth and throat.

If we do notice anything, we will recommend immediate treatment so you can get rid of these abnormalities.
