At McQueen Dental in Fayetteville, we offer preventive family dentistry services at our Fayetteville, AR dental office to keep your smile healthy, confident and bright. Our team emphasizes the power of preventive dental care and good oral hygiene habits to protect your smile for life! We recommend a dental checkup every six months so you can stay ahead of any potential oral health problems.
During your regular teeth 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 fully inform you and answer any questions you have about your recommended treatment options. McQueen Dental is proud to be your partner in protecting your oral health!
Dr. Michael McQueen offers a complete spectrum of family dentistry and preventive dental services, including:
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
Dental prophylaxis is a professional teeth cleaning procedure designed to thoroughly clean your teeth and gums. It is an important preventive measure to help stop the progression of gingivitis, periodontal disease, and tooth decay. We recommend our orally healthy patients receive this type of procedure twice a year.
Oral Cancer Screening
Tobacco users aren’t the only ones who should be concerned about oral cancer. Oral cancer is on the rise in people who never use tobacco products. That’s why at McQueen Dental, we include oral cancer screenings as part of your regular dental checkup to all of our patients over the age of 18.
Our dental practice uses digital x-ray technology 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 and the effective treatment of dental problems. They also expose our patients to lower levels of radiation than traditional film x-rays.
iTero® Intraoral Digital Scanner
Dr. McQueen uses the iTero intraoral digital scanner for patients undergoing restorative dental treatments or considering Invisalign orthodontic treatment.
This dental technology allows Dr. McQueen to take a closer look at your teeth and show your possible treatment outcome side-by-side with your current smile! iTero digital scans are fast, comfortable, and accurate, which makes the entire process more efficient.
This advanced dental technology also features a touch-screen tool that lets Dr. McQueen make real-time adjustments to the possible smile outcome for each patient, so if you’re not satisfied with what you’re seeing, our Fayetteville dental team can easily adjust your proposed treatment.
Cone Beam 3D Imaging
Dr. McQueen uses this dental technology for precise diagnosis and dental treatment planning.
Our cone beam 3D imaging system is used for dental services like:
- Dental Implants
- Dental X-Rays
- Restorative Dentistry
- Cosmetic Dental Treatments
The imaging system is at the center of everything we do at McQueen Dental because it virtually eliminates all guesswork, allowing Dr. McQueen to see and plan procedures before he begins your dental treatment!
Teeth-Strengthening Mineral Application
Mineral treatment is used to help support healthy tooth enamel. This teeth-strengthening treatment has the ability to re-mineralize weak areas of tooth enamel, keeping your teeth more resilient against bacteria.
Desensitizing Treatments for Sensitive Teeth
For patients suffering the pain and discomfort of sensitive teeth, we apply a desensitizing solution and bonding that begins to work immediately. Enjoy your favorite food and drink again without fear of pain and sensitivity!
Dental sealants can seal off deep grooves in your molars that are vulnerable to tooth decay. This preventive treatment guards your teeth against cavities by forming a “shield” over the enamel of your teeth, keeping out bacteria and acids. Dental sealants can be particularly effective for pediatric dental patients!
If you or your child are involved in a sport or other athletic activity, wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard is one of your best pieces of insurance. Not only does a mouthguard protect your teeth, it can also reduce your risk of concussion.
