ORAL EXAM AND ORAL CANCER SCREENING
Peace of Mind
Regular dental check-ups ensure early identification of problems such as oral cancer, ill-fitting dentures and dental infections. Individuals aged 60 and over are in the highest risk category for oral cancer and dental cavities.
Because clients may not always be able to communicate their discomfort, these issues can often go unnoticed. Delayed identification can lead to more invasive treatment and compromised nutrition.
Now offering VELscope oral cancer screening technology!
PREVENTATIVE DENTAL HYGIENE
Ultrasonic and hand instruments are used to gently loosen and remove plaque and tartar build-up.
Tooth polishing removes accumulated stains and surface roughness, resulting in a smooth surface that is more difficult for plaque and bacteria to adhere to.
TEMPORARY FILLING PLACEMENT
A Gentle, Cost Effective Solution
Lasting up to 5 years and at a cost of approximately 60% less than conventional fillings, glass ionomer fillings are a gentle and non-invasive option to stabilize areas affected by dental cavities. No dental freezing or drilling is required, allowing for quick and comfortable placement during the routine dental visit.
THERAPEUTIC FLUORIDE APPLICATION
Focus On Prevention
Silver diamine fluoride applied during the early stages of dental decay can prevent the area from progressing into a dental cavity. The anti-bacterial properties of silver work together with the remineralizing abilities of fluoride to re-harden the tooth.
Fluoride varnish reduces the number of cavity causing bacteria in the mouth and strengthens the tooth enamel making it much more resistant to cavity formation.
