Routine Dental Care
Exams are so important in maintaining your oral health, which is why the Academy of General Dentistry recommends coming in twice a year for checkups. Our dentists have received advanced training in spotting any potential issues before they become major problems. During the exam, we will use state-of-the-art equipment to check for cracked and decayed teeth, review your medical history to keep up-to-date on any changes that could potentially impact your oral health, evaluate your gums for signs of gingivitis or periodontal disease (gum disease), and inspect any current restorations (fillings, crowns, etc.) to make sure they are functioning correctly. In addition, we also conduct an oral cancer screening, as it is vitally important to catch this life-threatening illness in the earliest stages for the greatest treatment outcome.
A professional dental cleaning at least twice a year can improve your oral health according to the Academy of General Dentistry. Our dentists and hygienists are experts at removing plaque and tartar that builds up and attacks your teeth during everyday life. While proper brushing and flossing are vitally important in the fight against cavities and gum disease, it is almost impossible to remove 100% of harmful buildup at home. Our team uses the most advanced tools and techniques to clean and polish your teeth to perfection and leave your mouth healthy and sparkling.
We are dedicated to our patients’ safety in all aspects of our dental practice and, therefore, are adamant about staying up-to-date on advances in dental technology. Rather than traditional x-rays, we utilize advanced digital x-ray technology in order to minimize our patients’ exposure to radiation, and provide several advanced imaging options to save time and provide clearer dental photos.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Our holistic approach to dental care drives us to not only keep your teeth clean, but also make sure that your overall oral health is addressed. This is why we conduct quick and simple, yet thorough oral cancer screenings as a routine part of your exams. Our knowledgeable and skilled staff examine your mouth and throat for any abnormalities that could indicate oral cancer or precancerous conditions. If you find red or white spots in the mouth, a sore that bleeds easily or does not heal, a lump, thickening or rough spot, pain, tenderness, numbness, difficulty chewing, swallowing, speaking, or moving the jaw/tongue, contact our office as these can be signs of oral cancer.
