Oral cancer can be a life-threatening disease if it’s left to progress to other areas of the body. That’s why our team at Dental Innovations conducts thorough oral cancer screenings at each of your semi-annual checkups and cleanings. We’ll search for common symptoms of the disease, such as red and white patches in the mouth, oral wounds that aren’t healing, and lumps or abnormalities in the oral tissue. The sooner we can catch it, the better chances of successfully treating the disease.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that’s vital to protecting your teeth from decay. It can be found in a variety of products, including certain foods, most mouthwashes and toothpastes, and even city water systems. For patients who aren’t receiving enough fluoride in their day-to-day life, we may suggest our treatment to help ward off the threat of cavities. In just a few minutes, we’ll apply a topical fluoridated gel to your teeth, providing you with lasting protection.
Do you feel overwhelmed when you walk down your oral hygiene product aisle? It can be hard to know which specific brands of toothpastes and mouthwashes are the best options for your oral health. Our team makes it easier by recommending Colgate and Waterpik brands to help prevent cavities and other oral health problems from developing. With the right at-home hygiene products paired with regular checkups and cleanings, you can keep your natural smile healthy.
