Our preventive services include the following:


Do you struggle with constant, painful headaches? Do your teeth seem worn down or damaged for no understandable reason? These are common signs of bruxism, more commonly known as teeth grinding. Millions of people suffer from this condition, and what’s worse is that it typically occurs when you’re asleep, which can make the prospect of stopping it on your own virtually impossible.  Thankfully, a nightguard from Dr. Wardlaw can make all the difference. By wearing this customized oral appliance while resting, patients minimize the effects of teeth grinding and protect their smile.

Oral Cancer Screenings

On average, one person dies from oral cancer every hour, and nearly half of those diagnosed this year won’t go on to live five more years. These staggering statistics occur because most cases of oral cancer aren’t identified until they’ve already reached advanced, destructive stages. Here in Arlington, Dr. Wardlaw has made oral cancer screenings a vital part of your routine check-ups. By locating cancerous cells at the earliest possible time, our team can dramatically improve your chances of undergoing treatment successfully.
