General Dental Care Matters at Every Stage of Life
Healthy smiles don’t just happen on their own. You have to brush and floss daily, and you should get professional checkups regularly to reduce your risk of tooth decay and periodontal problems. When you visit us, we are happy to provide:
- Dental Cleanings and Exams – Professional cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup from your mouth, while exams help us identify potential problems in the early stages when treatment is easier. We can even show you real-time images inside your mouth using our intraoral camera. Plus, get teeth whitening refills at your checkups when you enroll in our Lifetime Whitening program.
- Gum Disease Treatment – Through a process called scaling and root planing, we remove tartar from the roots of your teeth, which causes irritation and infection of gum tissue.
- Oral Cancer Screenings – Early detection makes a big difference in treating oral cancer. We hope we never find anything, but if we do, we want you to know as soon as possible.
- Dry Mouth Treatment – Dry mouth is a chronic condition for some patients, which can increase the risk of cavities and periodontal disease. We can recommend special toothpaste and mouth rinses to address this condition.
If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant in the future, we want to stress that preventive dental care is important at this time in your life. During pregnancy, hormone changes and diet can increase your risk of some oral health issues. We want you to keep your healthy smile before, during, and after your pregnancy.
