CLEANINGS

The best way to prevent excessive plaque buildup is to schedule a professional cleaning with a dentist or dental hygienist every six months. Plaque that is left untreated can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay. A routine dental cleaning lasts about one hour and will usually include scaling and polishing.

Our professional cleanings will help you to preserve your teeth and gums. If you have not scheduled your next professional cleaning, contact us today and avoid the cost and discomfort of extensive dental restorations.

Gum Disease (Periodontal) Treatments

The gums, ligaments and bone around the teeth form the foundation for your teeth. These structures as a whole are also called the periodontium. When the periodontium is not healthy, it jeopardizes the teeth just as a bad foundation would threaten the stability of a house.

Some signs of an unhealthy periodontium include gums that are red and bleed easily, persistent bad breath, gums that are pulled away from the tooth, loose teeth and changes in the position or bite of the teeth. Any of these may be a sign of a problem.

With proper gum treatments, however, it may be possible to return gum tissue to a healthy state. If gum disease is not treated at the first sign of a problem and becomes too severe, it may need to be treated through surgery or extraction.

Comprehensive Examinations

In order to maintain a healthy smile, it is important that our dentist performs comprehensive examinations of your overall oral health. Using advanced dental technology, such as digital x-rays, we can effectively monitor the condition of your teeth and identify early signs of decay.

Comprehensive exams allow our professional staff to assess the condition of your gums and their position along your teeth. Early detection of periodontal disease can save your smile. Our knowledgeable staff will work with you to develop an examination schedule that matches your oral health requirements.

Material Fillings

Dental fillings restore teeth damaged by decay back to their normal shape and function, and are a vital aspect of your overall oral health.

If you have a tooth that requires a filling, our knowledgeable Davison dentists will remove the decayed material, clean the affected area and then fill the cavity with a filling material. This filling will help to prevent further decay by closing off any cracks or spaces where bacteria can enter and cause harm to the tooth.

Oral Cancer Screenings

In America, oral cancer kills more people each year than skin and cervical cancer combined. At our Davison dental practice, we perform oral cancer screenings utilizing visual inspection and manual palpation. In addition, we have the latest technology in oral cancer detection.

Our oral cancer screening system helps us visualize abnormalities in the mucosal tissues of your lips, mouth and upper throat. An oral cancer screening examination will allow your dentist to more accurately assess your overall oral health.

To ensure that your mouth is as healthy as possible, request an oral cancer exam during your next visit to the dentist or contact us for more information.
