Oral Cancer Screenings
ViziLite Plus is a professional oral cancer screening system that we use in our office which allows us to identify any suspicious lesions that may include precancerous or cancerous cells. It is important to have screenings done annually even if patients do not notice abnormalities because not all signs are obvious.
Aside from receiving an oral cancer screening during your checkup at our office, there are many things you can do to help prevent oral cancer.
• The best way to prevent oral cancer is to avoid all tobacco products and only drink alcohol in moderation.
• Maintain a healthy, balanced diet.
• Limit your exposure to the sun and always wear UV-A/B-blocking sun protective lotions on your skin as well as your lips.
• During your next dental appointment, ask your dentist to perform an oral exam. Early detection of oral cancer can improve the chance of successful treatment
We provide the Opalescence Tooth Whitening System, a prescription-strength bleaching tray process that safely provides a brighter & whiter smile. This system is only available to patients who complete necessary cleaning and restorative treatment prior to cosmetic work.
A dental exam includes diagnostic procedures performed by the dentist & hygienists in order to better evaluate your dental needs. This process includes: reviewing medical history, dental radiographs (x-rays), oral cancer screening, extraoral, and intraoral evaluations.
In general dentistry, the dentist is the primary care provider for patients of all ages and is responsible for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of conditions, disorders and diseases affecting the teeth, gums and maxillofacial (jaw and face) parts of the body. Even though general dentists primarily provide preventative care and minor restorative therapy, they are often able to perform a wide array of other dental procedures, including some minor cosmetic treatments.
Regular oral health check-ups and maintenance help to prevent the development of serious dental problems that may require more extensive and costly treatments. General dentists are highly educated and trained in multiple facets of dentistry, providing a variety of different services for you and your family.
