Routine Dental Care
Dental exams are a vitally important step in maintaining healthy teeth and gums. The Academy of General Dentistry recommends two checkups per year for people of all ages. During these appointments, our expert team can identify potential issues before they become major problems and remedy them with minimal intervention and expense. We will be sure to review your medical history to see how any medical conditions or illnesses may affect dental health. In addition, our staff will check for cracked or decayed teeth, examine for signs of gum disease, inspect existing restorations (like fillings and crowns) and conduct an oral cancer screening.
Not only is our practice committed to using the latest treatment techniques, we also employ the most advanced technology possible to provide the very best care for you and your loved ones. This is why we have upgraded from traditional x-rays and utilize advanced digital x-ray technology–this service saves you time, provides clearer dental photos and minimizes exposure to radiation. Using these precision x-rays allows us to identify hidden areas of decay, spot other issues before they become more problematic, and help you maintain your best oral health.
Oral Cancer Screenings
In keeping with our holistic approach to dental care, we conduct oral cancer screenings as part of your regular exam. Our years of training and experience, coupled with the specialized tools and techniques we use, allow us to detect early signs and symptoms of oral cancer and precancerous conditions. Oral cancer, like many other types, can be life-threatening if not diagnosed and treated early.
Because it is nearly impossible to remove 100% of the plaque and tartar build up on your teeth at home, even with careful brushing and flossing, the Academy of General Dentistry recommends a professional cleaning twice a year. At 359 Dental & Orthodontics, our gentle dentists and hygienists use the latest tools and techniques to completely remove all buildup from your teeth, polish your teeth to perfection and floss thoroughly. We generally combine these cleanings with an overall exam, so you can leave our office confident in your clean, healthy smile!
