Our concern for your dental well-being begins with our desire to help you properly care for your teeth, to keep them healthy and strong for as long as possible, and to help you avoid costly restorative treatments. You will find that the time it takes to follow simple brushing and flossing procedures will be repaid many times over in assuring your optimum dental health.
Early Warning Signs
Dental problems develop slowly, and often painlessly. Gum disease, in particular, usually proceeds silently. And yet, early intervention is important in minimizing complications. Healthy gums are firm and generally pink in color. If your gums become red or swollen, if they begin to bleed easily, or if you have persistent bad breath, you are experiencing early warning signs that should alert you to the need for professional dental care.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer affects thousands of Americans yearly. We use the latest technology to detect changes in oral tissue consistencies and/or lesions. The doctor performs head and neck exams as well as cancer screening during prophy appointments and cleanings. With early detection, cancer may be caught before it has time to spread, potentially saving lives.
