Your dentist and hygienist are the people most likely to help discover a condition like oral cancer. This dangerous and deadly disease can be a challenge to diagnose on your own. With regular dental checkups, we can identify pre-cancerous tissues or early risk factors.
Oral cancer screenings are a complimentary part of every check and clean visit, whether you’re a new patient or have been seeing us for years.
By evaluating your oral tissues every six months, we can identify the early warning signs. Your health and family are counting on it.
We recommend brushing your teeth twice per day and flossing once daily. If there are areas that require extra attention between checkups, we’ll discuss modifying your oral hygiene plan to clean those areas more effectively. Investing in a powered toothbrush or water flosser can make your daily hygiene routine more effective. We will help you understand if these may be helpful to you, and how to use them. We also stock a variety of sizes of Pixters and floss to help clean in between your teeth, or to help keep your dental implants in tip top condition.
Adding a professional fluoride application to your checkup appointment can remineralise weak enamel, making it resistant to tooth decay altogether.
