Your mouth consists of numerous components. Many of them, including the teeth, the gums, the tongue and other intraoral soft tissues, can be seen with a visual examination. However, there are numerous parts of your mouth that are completely hidden from view, such as your tooth roots, the periodontal ligaments, the jawbone and more.

Professional cleanings performed by a hygienist or dental assistant are as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Twice yearly dental check-ups and cleanings help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair. Read More About Professional Cleanings
Taking care of your mouth is essential for preventing serious oral health issues. The American Dental Association recommends daily brushing and flossing, as well as regular professional cleanings.

An oral cancer screening is a part of your regular 6-month exams. We inspect the soft tissues of your mouth, as well as check your face and neck for signs of swelling. This examination is only a part of the diagnostic process. If we do notice anything unusual, we may take some digital images, which will allow us to get a closer look at the hidden structures of your mouth. Read More About Oral Cancer Screenings
Sealants are designed to fill the deep pits and grooves of your molars, which can be particularly susceptible to dental caries because they trap food debris and bacteria. These grooves can be difficult to clean, and in some cases, can even be narrower than the bristle of a toothbrush. Children have a particularly difficult time keeping the molars clean. A dental sealant can change that. Read More About Sealants
Tooth extractions are a common procedure performed in our office. Typically tooth extractions can be performed using local anesthesia. For patients who have complex cases, IV anesthesia/sedation can be used. Read More About Tooth Extractions
