Cleanings, Exams & X-rays
Professional cleanings performed by a registered hygienist are just as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Twice yearly dental check-ups and cleanings help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair. X-rays allow us to evaluate your teeth for conditions we may not see clinically.
Sealants are generally used to help prevent tooth decay on the biting surfaces of back teeth (molars). Sealants are painted directly onto the tooth where they seal the natural grooves to help prevent tooth decay. Read More About Sealants
Gum disease occurs in stages and more than half of all adults over the age of 30 have some form of it. If you feel you are at risk, you should talk to us right away. If we catch gum disease in the early stage (gingivitis) it could be reversed with proper care from your dental team. If left untreated, gum disease progress to later stages (periodontitis) which is not reversible. Read More About Gum Disease
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer compromises 85% of all the head and neck related cancers. 90% of oral cancers are squamous cell carcinomas. Oral cancers frequently present themselves with no pain or symptoms. During each patient care appointment, our trained staff evaluates the oral cavity for changes and signs of any pathology. Early detection is best!
