DETECT PROBLEMS EARLY
Cleanings and Exams
Did you know that almost all dental problems are completely preventable?
Our philosophy is to detect any problems early so that you can avoid costly and extensive dental treatment. Preventative control of plaque and calculus will not only decrease the chances that you develop tooth decay, but it will also increase the chances that you will keep your teeth healthy for life.
Our dentists thoroughly examine all aspects of your oral health to determine whether or not intervention is necessary. In many cases, they can identify developing problems before they have an opportunity to deteriorate into more complex treatment situations. During your examination, we will assess risks of oral cancer, periodontal disease, and check the integrity of your existing restorations. Additionally, we will even screen for symptoms of problems like TMJ disorder.
Maintaining good dental hygiene can be very important. Our high quality of service provides patients with more than just a simple cleaning but ensures great oral health by extending your personal oral hygiene routine. We are always willing to help you establish a dental hygiene routine that will keep your teeth healthy and white. Mostof our healthy patients benefit from having their teeth cleaned every six to nine months. Our hygienists will work with you to provide essential information and the tools necessary to keep your gums healthy between checkups. If you have recently been treated for gum disease, we may recommend that you come in for a maintenance cleaning as frequently as every three months.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of any dental visit for a patient. As modern technology has advanced, we are now able to discover potential problems in the early stages before they become irreversible. Lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of your tissues. If you’re a heavy smoker or drinker, make sure to get screenings regularly..
