Routine Dental Checkups
To maximize your chances of keeping your smile healthy, you should attend a dental checkup at least once every six months. Routine checkups involve a thorough visual inspection of your teeth, gums, and oral tissues to spot signs that could indicate trouble (such as tooth decay or gum disease). We’ll also carefully check for signs of bruxism (chronic teeth-grinding), TMJ disorder (a jaw joint dysfunction), and more, so we can recommend treatment as soon as possible, if necessary.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Checking up on your smile also means checking for the most hazardous oral health condition of all – oral cancer. This can include cancer of any area of your oral tissues, since your chances of successful treatment are highest when it’s detected early. Digital imaging technology, such as our intraoral camera, can help us thoroughly examine every area of your oral tissues to ensure optimal results.
