Whether you already have beautiful teeth or there’s still some more work to be done, the dedicated team at Oasis Family Dental will be by your side every step of the way.
Professional Teeth Cleanings
Sometimes called prophylaxis, a professional teeth cleaning is a deep cleanse of the entire mouth. The process will eliminate any harmful bacteria and plaque that is present and provide the patient with a feeling of oral freshness. We start by using special dental tools to remove unwanted build-ups from the outer surfaces of the teeth and below the gum line. Next, the teeth are thoroughly cleaned and polished to eliminate surface stains. During this procedure, we also keep a sharp eye out of any signs of tooth decay or gum disease.
By taking digital X-rays, we are able to safely obtain a detailed view of a patient’s oral structures and hidden areas inside the mouth. This allows us to detect certain issues that would otherwise be entirely invisible. In fact, many dental problems would go completely unnoticed if it weren’t for the use of digital X-rays. Once our team knows exactly what type of issue the patient is experiencing, we can proceed forward with the most effective treatment.
Oral Cancer Screening
People can be affected by oral cancer at any point in time. This dangerous condition is best treated when it is caught in its earliest stages. That is why we take the time to provide an oral cancer screening during every complete checkup. During this process, we will examine the patient’s lips, tongue, face, throat and oral tissues for any signs or symptoms of oral cancer.
A naturally occurring mineral, fluoride can benefit a person’s teeth in many ways. By applying the substance directly to the teeth during a complete dental checkup, we can strengthen one’s tooth enamel and even reverse the early effects of tooth decay. Supplemental fluoride applications may be recommended for any patient who wants to prevent decay and protect their teeth.
