Prevention of Dental Problems
Professional dental cleanings and exams get your whole mouth cleaner than before. Our hygienists carefully remove all the plaque and tartar that build up on and around your teeth, preventing cavities, gum disease, tooth decay, and other serious dental problems, including protecting your overall health. Yes, regular dental checkups can do more than address your oral health issues. Gum disease (periodontitis) has been associated with an increased risk of heart disease. Regular cleanings and good oral hygiene can help prevent serious medical concerns.

Early diagnosis is the best way to prevent minor dental problems from ballooning into an issue that will require major dental treatment.

If there are signs of oral cancer, we will refer you to a doctor for further tests and treatment. Oral cancer is treatable, especially when detected early, however many of those signs are not detectable to the naked eye, so regular checkups from a qualified dental professional are important for early detection.
