At K.C. Sykora DDS Family and Implant Dentistry, we strive to offer comprehensive dental services for you and your family. Below you will find short descriptions of each of the general dentistry procedures we offer. We urge you to contact our office with any questions or concerns you may have. We want to help you get the information you need to make the best decisions for your family.
Dental Cleanings and Exams
Our most basic yet most important dental services include our cleanings and exams. We thoroughly check your mouth for any signs of gum disease, oral cancer, cavities, and any other issues. This lets us know how you are doing and what we can do to help. We also offer regular cleanings with a dental hygienist. Cleanings are an important part of preventive care.

Gum Disease Treatment
Gingivitis and periodontitis, two common forms of gum disease, can wreck your oral health if left unchecked. Our gum disease treatment procedures can help you get the care you need to eliminate the infection. We can offer deep cleaning procedures (scaling and root planing) and laser dentistry to restore your oral health. If you require more extensive treatment, we can connect you with a local periodontist who can help.
If you are experiencing signs of gum disease, including but not limited to bleeding, tenderness, swelling, redness, or other irritation, please contact our office as soon as possible. Regardless of your periodontal situation, we can help you get the care you need!
Our sealants are designed to protect the teeth from cavity-causing substances. These are great for kids and patients who are prone to getting cavities. We simply coat the teeth with the clear sealant for increased protection.
Fluoride Treatments and Varnishes
Fluoride strengthens your tooth enamel, making it less susceptible to the acid produced by plaque bacteria in the process of tooth decay. It also strengthens the second layer of the tooth, decreasing sensitivity. If you want strong, healthy teeth for life, consider our fluoride treatments and varnishes.
CariVu Cavity Detection
This device is designed to make any cavities in between teeth easier to detect. It works by bathing the tooth in near- infrared light, causing the decayed enamel to appear very dark. A camera on the handheld wand then transmits and enlarges that image onto a computer screen making the decay easy to visualize. It also helps us diagnose teeth that have cracks, which is often very difficult with the naked eye. Let us help catch small problems before they turn into larger dental issues.
We offer mouthguards for bruxism (teeth grinding) as well as athletics. These guards help to protect the teeth from any unnecessary damage. Depending on your needs, we can craft your guard right here in our office, or send it off to a lab to be manufactured. Learn more about our mouthguards.
Oral Cancer Screenings
We use VELscope technology to scan your mouth for signs of oral cancer. This tool illuminates your tissue and allows us to detect any abnormalities. We also perform regular visual examinations. This is an important part of your regular preventive care.
