Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
During a dental checkup and cleaning, our team will not only remove harmful plaque and tartar from your teeth that are the root cause of most dental problems, but your dentist will also give you a thorough exam that looks at your teeth, restorations, gums, and bite. By coming to see us regularly, you allow us to find any issues during their earliest stages and take care of them way before they cause any noticeable pain or damage.
Gum Disease Treatment
The primary cause of tooth loss in the U.S. is gum disease, an infection that attacks the soft tissues that support the teeth as well as the roots themselves. We’ll look for early signs of gum disease at your routine checkups, and if we find something, we can provide targeted treatment right away. With a deep cleaning, we can remove the source of the infection to lower your chance of future problems as well.
Your teeth are exposed to harmful bacteria and acids every day that can eat away at the enamel, but fluoride helps by strengthening the protective layer of your teeth to help it stand up to decay. If you don’t get enough fluoride from your toothpaste and diet, we can provide a highly-concentrated treatment as part of your routine cleanings. We’ll simply apply a gel during your regular appointment, and it will give you a boost of protection that will last for the next 6 months.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is actually becoming more common in the U.S., and the most effective way to handle the disease is to find it early and treat it immediately. That’s why we always perform an oral cancer screening during each patient’s checkup. If we discover a suspicious growth, sore, or other symptoms, we can help a patient get a diagnosis so they can begin treatment (if needed) right away, giving them the best possible chance of a full and fast recovery.
