Our practice is proud to be a trusted provider of dental services and treatments in our area. We have a full range of services that range from complete dental exams to oral health treatment and gum disease treatment. If you’ve been putting off a visit to the dentist for a while, there’s no need to worry. Our understanding dentists will do everything they can to ensure your comfort and to provide you with whatever treatments you need. At your first visit with us, our dentist will perform a thorough check of your gums, teeth, and mouth to detect the following oral health issues:
Routine professional cleanings are frequently part of a dental exam and are one of the primary reasons that our patients come to see us. Professional cleanings remove the collection of plaque and calculus that accumulate on the teeth after eating and drinking. Plaque is comprised of a film of bacteria, which can be removed via daily brushing and flossing. Failure to follow proper oral hygiene can lead to the plaque hardening and turning into calculus. Calculus will eventually lead to the enamel of the teeth deteriorating and the development of tooth decay.
The bacteria behind plaque and calculus can also lead to gingivitis. Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease. If you have gums that are swollen, sensitive, red, or bleeding then you probably have gingivitis. If you fail to have gingivitis treated, it can advance into a more serious stage of gum disease called periodontal disease. If you have advanced gum disease you will need to seek periodontal treatment from one of our dentists.
Halitosis is a condition where you experience chronic bad breath. It is estimated that somewhere around 25% of Americans have experienced this problem. It can be cause by poor oral hygiene, tooth decay or from something you ate. If you are frequently experiencing bad breath, we are able to help. We provide our patients with cleanings, treatments, and at-home hygiene recommendations that can help you to address this issue.
Our dentists provide all of our patients with an oral cancer screening during their annual dental exam. Since oral cancer is a fatal condition, it is important that you receive regular screenings to detect in its early stages. The earlier that oral cancer is detected, the more likely it is that it can be successfully treated. We strongly recommend that you receive an oral cancer test if you are over the age of 18.
