Your teeth are not the only important part of your mouth. Your gums are essential to oral health as well. We can provide periodontal cleanings and treatment, or refer you to one of our recommended specialists. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Oral cancer screenings
Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of the dental visit. With the advances in modern technology, we are now able to identify the start of a potential problem much earlier in its progression. The ability to do so is extremely important in being able to treat any issues prior to them becoming a major irreversible problem.
Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of tissues and your overall oral health. If you are a smoker or heavy drinker, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit the dentist.
Often there is plaque and tartar that accumulates below the gum line. In this scenario, we will clean and smooth this area with special instruments to ensure that the area is completely spotless. If this area is not kept clean, it can become irritated with bacteria that resides in the tartar and plaque. It's very important to have your dentist check this area if you have bleeding gums.
