At Premier Dental Care, we understand the importance of healthy teeth and gums. The foundation of your smile impacts the health of your entire body! That's why Dr. Hines provides only the best preventive care and exams to the Washington, DC area. The entire team at Premier Dental Care is dedicated to helping patients of all ages enjoy a full life with a confident smile — from a child's first dental exam to a patient undergoing a more intensive dental procedure, our expert team has every patient's best health in mind! Although we offer a long list of services including cosmetic and restorative dentistry, quality prevention is at the heart of our patient-centered approach.
We offer the following preventive services at our Washington, DC dentist's office:
Gentle Preventive Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
Without proper oral hygiene and regular preventive exams, oral concerns like cavities, periodontal disease and decay can lead to more serious problems. Premier Dental Care is here to safeguard your smile against dental health concerns with advanced dental technologies and quality preventive care! Dr. Hines and his skilled team provide speedy, comfortable cleanings, targeting plaque along the way. Your visit will be complete with a gentle polishing of the teeth to remove stains and discoloration, and if needed, a tooth strengthening mineral treatment.
Our team uses the best dental tools to prevent disease and other oral health concerns from arising. While we recommend patients receive dental cleanings at least twice a year to maintain optimal oral health, Dr. Hines may recommend more frequent, targeted cleanings based on your unique needs!
Nightguards For TMJ Pain
Do you grind your teeth while you sleep? Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, can lead to uncomfortable symptoms like headaches, uneven tooth wear, and TMJ. Dr. Hines creates custom night guards to help patients correct the problem while preserving a healthy, functional bite. Special orthotics can also protect against the headaches related to bite dysfunction!
Desensitizing Treatments For Sensitive Teeth
Premier Dental Care offers desensitizing treatments for patients who experience tooth sensitivity to hot and cold. Tooth sensitivity can take away from your ability to enjoy certain foods, but it doesn't have to! Our treatments are designed to take away that sensitivity for months, allowing you to comfortably enjoy the foods and drinks you love. If the sensitivity isn't due to anything serious, Dr. Hines will apply a special desensitizing paste to prevent the condition for months! He'll also provide tips for keeping the sensitivity at bay between your regular preventive appointments.
Our local Washington, DC office covers most of the dental services you'll need. That's why patients throughout the District of Columbia trust us to keep their teeth and gums healthy! However, if Dr. Hines finds a need for a dental procedure outside his areas of expertise, we'll be happy to refer you to an oral surgeon or one of our other trusted partners. This collaborative approach to care allows us to provide the best, most customized patient experience possible.
For the most part, any type of dental care you need can be completed in our local office, and patients from throughout the District of Columbia visit our office because they know we can keep their teeth and gums healthy. But if Dr. Hines sees the need for a dental procedure that’s outside his areas of expertise, our office will refer you to an oral surgeon or another provider. That doesn’t mean the end of our patient relationship, however. After we bring one of our trusted partners into the conversation, we continue to collaborate with them on a regular basis toward a shared goal of keeping our patients in the best possible health.
