Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of the dental visit for the patient. With the advances in modern technology, we are now able to pinpoint the root of the problem much earlier in its evolution. This is extremely important in being able to treat any issues prior to them becoming a major irreversible problem.

The oral cancer screening is often completed with ultraviolet light or similar device that allows us to view issues that can't always be detected by the human eye under normal conditions.

Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of tissues and overall health of the mouth. If you are a smoker or heavy drinker, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit the dentist.

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and Root Planing, also known as deep cleaning, is a non-surgical treatment usually performed during the early stages of periodontal (gum) disease. This procedure removes plaque and tartar accumulation around and beneath the patient’s gum line. During the scaling process, the dentist will clean and remove all deposits above and below the gum line.

After scaling, your dentist will use special instruments to conduct the root planing procedure. This procedure reaches deeper to smoothen rough root surfaces and remove bacterial toxins. It reduces pocket depths and reattaches your gums to your teeth. If you need gum disease treatment with scaling and root planing, get in touch with our clinic today.
