Oral Cancer Screenings
With our advanced oral cancer screening, we can detect abnormal tissues and malignancies early. Oral cancer risks include tobacco, alcohol, sun exposure, and even certain types of viruses. If we think we see precancerous tissue during the preliminary screening, we will perform a secondary screening using advanced VELscope technology.
Digital and Panoramic Radiographs
Low radiation digital x-rays limit the time you spend in the treatment chair, because the images are captured instantly. You get to see these high-resolution images on the screen in each of our treatment rooms, and we’ll discuss them with you.
Seeing your teeth for yourself allows us to communicate more clearly and effectively about your plan of treatment. With a pen-sized, intraoral camera, we display the images on our in-room monitors so we can look at and talk to you about your oral health in real time.
During preventive care appointments, patients receive a gentle cleaning with ultrasonic technology. We recommend that most people have a preventive cleanings every six months. We screen for gum disease, tooth decay, bone loss, and oral cancer at each visit.
Active gum disease may cause tooth loss as well as interfere with systemic health concerns. If we identify any areas of periodontal disease, we offer non-surgical as well as surgical therapy techniques to prevent future bone and tooth loss.
All children receive a fluoride application during every preventive care appointment. We also offer fluoride treatments to our adult patients, as fluoride is an effective way to prevent tooth sensitivity and future cavities.
