Routine Cleanings and Exams
While following a tooth brushing and flossing routine at home is important, annual routine cleanings and exams are highly encouraged. These routine cleanings and exams allow us to take a professional look at your teeth. As these are usually scheduled bi-annually, they are one of the best ways for us to provide preventative care. You can also receive fluoride treatments at this bi-annual visit for extra powerful cleaning.
Oral Cancer Screenings
If you have a concern about the appearance or a feeling in your mouth, we can provide oral cancer screenings. These screenings allow us to get a professional look in your mouth for abnormal color patches, mouth sores, or lumps. Oral cancer screenings play an important role when it comes to your oral health and overall health.
Half of Americans aged 30 or older have periodontitis, which is the advanced form of periodontal disease. Getting periodontal care such as cleaning tartar from around the teeth, dental sealants, checking inflammation around the gum line, and more can help prevent periodontal problems or prevent it from getting worse.
Dental sealants can protect the vulnerable areas of your teeth, making them a preventative measure when it comes to avoiding cavities or anything else that can cause tooth decay. Dental sealants are a good investment when it comes to preventive dentistry services. Dental sealants are quick and applied painlessly.
