Cleanings & Exams
Routine cleanings and X-Rays are the cornerstones of your dental health. Our talented hygienists will clean and polish your teeth to help maintain healthy teeth and gums, while our doctors are available to check your teeth for cavities, evaluate for gum disease and perform oral cancer screenings. Sensitive teeth and gums? No problem. Our dental team has several options to ensure you are comfortable during your dental cleanings.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer screenings play a vital role in life saving early detection of cancers or other systemic diseases. While most oral cancers are on the decline, HPV related cancers are on the rise. Our doctors perform this important service during your routine check-ups, another reason to make sure you see your dentist regularly!
Periodontal Disease Therapy
Periodontal Disease or “gum disease” is an infection of the tissues that hold your teeth in place. Left untreated, this can cause tooth loss and bad breath, and is a risk factor for heart disease, diabetes, and is associated with low birth weights. Fortunately, our team of doctors and hygienists are able to help you through individualized treatment plans.
Children aren’t known to be the best tooth brushers. This preventive service helps protect their posterior permanent teeth from cavities until their tooth brushing habits improve with age. There is no drilling with this procedure. We simply paint the sealant on and, in most cases, this service is covered 100% by your dental insurance.
Dental x-rays (radiographs) are used to evaluate your oral health. These images help our dentists to detect issues like cavities, infection, bone loss, or even lesions of the jaw. It is recommended that x-rays be taken on a regular basis, determined by your individual needs, to catch problems early. This helps our staff to correct these issues before they become more advanced.
