  • Why are dental checkups important?

    Regular dental checkups are crucial for maintaining good oral health. A skilled dentist can identify oral health issues that may not be visible during daily brushing and flossing. These checkups involve oral cancer screenings, digital X-rays for detecting hidden matters, and professional cleanings to eliminate plaque, bacteria, and other deposits that cannot be effectively removed through regular brushing and flossing.

    Early intervention is crucial for gum disease, the leading cause of tooth loss. Once gum disease has caused damage to the tooth and supporting bone, it cannot be restored; it can only be managed or replaced. During the checkup, the dental hygienist will measure the gum “pocket” around each tooth using a small ruler, noting areas that cannot be cleaned with a toothbrush or floss. X-rays are combined with these measurements to identify areas of bone recession.

  • What are the signs of oral cancer?

    Mouth cancer can develop in any area of the mouth, including the lips, tongue, and throat, as well as the salivary glands, pharynx, larynx, and sinuses. Early detection is crucial to overcoming the disease. If you experience any of the following symptoms, please schedule an appointment with your doctor:

    • Sores, swelling, lumps, or thick patches in or around your mouth
    • The feeling of a lump or object in your throat
    • Numbness or pain anywhere in your mouth
    • Loose teeth with no dental cause
    • A lingering sore throat or hoarseness
    • Areas of red or white lesions in your mouth or lips
    • Difficulty moving your jaw, swallowing, or speaking
    • Pain in your ear without loss of hearing

    According to the National Institute of Dental Craniofacial Research, over half of those diagnosed with oral cancer in the U.S. survive after five years, but early detection is critical.

  • Why are brushing and flossing important?

    Brushing and flossing freshen your breath and disrupt the complex network of bacteria called a biofilm in your mouth. This is important because it helps prevent diseases like cavities and gum disease. With so many dental products available, discussing your options with your hygienist is essential to get the best recommendation. Remember to brush your teeth twice daily for at least two minutes and floss once daily. If you find it challenging to remember to floss, try connecting it with daily activity, such as flossing in the shower or while driving to work!

  • What are other preventative dental care strategies?

    Our dental cleaning service cleans and polishes your teeth and provides several preventative services. These include:

    Dental Sealants — Protect the deep grooves and pits in your back teeth, making them easier to clean and less likely to develop cavities.

    Fluoride Treatment — Strengthens tooth enamel, fights sensitivity, and reverses the earliest stage of tooth decay. Our adult patients can use this service for only $29, while dental insurance typically covers fluoride treatments for children.

    Oral Cancer Screenings — This deadly disease is linked to viruses like HPV, sun exposure, and tobacco/alcohol use. Early screening could save your life. We complete a cancer exam as part of every checkup appointment.

    Diagnostic X-rays — Identify new areas of decay or bone loss around your teeth, allowing us to treat them in the least invasive manner before they worsen.
