Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
Everyone knows that if you want to protect your smile from cavities and gum disease, you need to schedule at least two dental checkups every year. Sometimes oral health issues may have already begun, and you won’t even realizing it until it’s too late. During your regular checkups, we’ll check for dental issues and move to treat them before they get out of hand. We’ll also remove the plaque and tartar that you’ve been unable to brush away by yourself.
Gum Disease Treatment
Periodontal disease is one of the most common oral health issues patients face today, and while symptoms may be relatively mild at first, it can quickly lead to serious issues like gum deterioration and tooth loss. Periodontal disease has also been linked to serious medical issues such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s. Here in Powell, OH, our team can provide personalized therapy for periodontal disease. In early cases, more frequent hygiene appointments may be enough to reverse ill effects. When the damage is more advanced, we can perform root scaling and planing or a precise removal of diseased tissue with our state-of-the-art soft tissue laser.
Oral Cancer Screening
Did you know that one American adult dies from oral cancer every hour? This disease has truly devastating consequences, but there is a high rate of successful treatment as long as its presence is detected early on. That’s why our dedicated doctors and staff members are committed to catching oral cancer sooner rather than later. We use ViziLite™ as a quick and pain-free oral cancer detection test that only takes two additional minutes out of your day. After the patient swishes a cleaning solution in their mouth for 60 seconds, we can perform a visual examination, during which we’ll be able to recognize potentially cancerous cells.
