It is highly recommended that every individual have regular dental checkups twice a year. These checkups include a full examination, a professional cleaning, an oral cancer screening, and when necessary, digital X-rays.
We will provide a thorough check of your entire mouth to help us proactively identify any concerns including cavities, decay or gum disease. All of these issues can be treated more easily if they are caught early.
Professional Dental Cleaning
A professional cleaning helps remove plaque and tartar from areas of the mouth that may be hard to reach using a toothbrush or floss. We perform this thorough cleaning using special dental tools, leaving your mouth clean and your breath fresh.
Oral Cancer Screening
Early detection of oral cancer can help ensure treatment is received in a timely manner. Most commonly in the tongue, lips or the floor of the mouth, oral cancer can also show up in the gums, the salivary glands, the lining of the lips and cheeks, the roof of the mouth or behind the wisdom teeth. Early detection offers the best chance of successful treatment.
When necessary, we use digital X-rays to detect any issues which may are not visible to the naked eye. Digital X-rays are a great alternative to traditional X-Rays as results can be seen immediately, and they expose the patient to less radiation. We also use the newly available Tru-Image system to shield patients from unnecessary radiation.
