Our Preventive Dentistry Services

At Lakeland Family Dental, we’re not just focused on effectively treating your oral health problems – we also want to keep them from ever happening in the first place. That’s why Dr. Eric Ruiz and Dr. Samantha Ruiz are happy to offer a preventive dentistry program that helps patients from ages three and up by addressing specific needs at any given time. Regular check-ups will allow us to identify potential problems as early as possible, and our swift, effective treatment will be sure to keep your smile shining bright. We look forward to welcoming you and all your loved ones to our Oconomowoc, WI office!

Nightguards for Bruxism

Teeth grinding (also known as bruxism) is a common habit among adults, but that definitely doesn’t mean this damaging condition should be taken lightly. When left untreated, patients can experience facial pain, serious headaches, worn-down enamel, significant tooth sensitivity, structural damage, and much more. Thankfully, our made-to-order nightguards can provide your smile with a valuable layer of protection, and they’re comfortable and easy to wear throughout the night.


When you’re getting your child’s gear ready for the big game, don’t forget to include an athletic mouthguard! Nearly half of all sports injuries involve the face in some way, and games with flying projectiles (basketball, baseball, football, etc) and a risk of falling (skateboarding, hockey, etc) can make participants especially prone to painful damage. While you can pick up a run-of-the-mill mouthguard at any sports store, we recommend that you come to our Oconomowoc office so that we can create a custom-made guard that promises exceptional comfort and safety.

TMJ Therapy

Your temporomandibular joints (TMJs) may be small, but they serve a crucial purpose by attaching your lower jaw to your skull. This means that when they’re even slightly misaligned, it can cause a whole host of potentially debilitating symptoms, including serious migraines, face, neck, and shoulder pain, and lockjaw. With the help of occlusal adjustments and stabilizing splints, our team at Lakeland Family Dental can alleviate discomfort and provide you with the relief you need.
