Treatments for a Lifetime of Oral & Dental Health
Dental Checkups & Cleanings
Even if you are consistent with brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing daily, it is still important to schedule a professional cleaning at least twice a year to remove stubborn or hard-to-reach plaque and calculus. During a cleaning, we will examine your smile to check for evidence of developing decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. We also provide you with recommendations on how you can better take care of your smile at home so you can maintain its health.
Fluoride is an element that is effective at strengthening the enamel, which makes your smile less susceptible to decay. We provide fluoride treatments for both children and adults to make sure you have the best possible protection against cavities.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is a very treatable cancer when caught early. We screen for oral cancer during your routine checkups and cleanings, to ensure that it is detected as soon as possible for the best chance of treatment success.
Sometimes, cavities and other dental issues can’t be detected through a visual exam. Digital x-rays are a diagnostic tool that allows us to catch any developing problems. Plus, digital x-ray expose patients to significantly less radiation when compared to traditional x-rays, and they produce images instantly.
