Oral cancer can easily appear in individuals who have multiple risk factors. However, they can also appear in patients who do not carry any risk factors, making it especially important to perform oral cancer screenings during every routine exam. To do this, we use the VELscope, a technology that utilizes bioluminescence to pinpoint oral sores and red or white patches in oral tissue. The sooner we can catch these early signs, the easier it will be to get you started on a treatment plan with a trusted physician.
If you are under the age of 18, you’re probably familiar with fluoride treatments because they are typically done every six months or every year following a detailed cleaning. Fluoride is often found in oral care products and most public drinking water systems, but our in-house fluoride is much stronger. Once applied to teeth, you can expect them to remain strong and well-protected against tooth decay well until your next appointment. Just make sure to keep brushing and flossing as usual!
There are many oral care products today, which can truly make you feel paralyzed by choice. When you aren’t sure which one is right for you, we’re happy to offer specific recommendations based on your needs. If you currently deal with teeth sensitivity, struggle to keep tartar under control, want a dedicated oral rinse for preventive and cosmetic purposes, or need a reliable product for your other family members, we can point you in the right direction.
