Gum Disease Detection & Prevention
Maintaining optimal oral health means protecting your gums from gingivitis and gum disease. Also known as periodontitis, gum disease is a common but often underestimated concern that can affect your oral and overall health.
Fortunately, for patients exhibiting signs of gingivitis or gum disease, our clinic offers a comprehensive approach to treatment that includes:
Identification and Prevention:
The first step for patients showing signs of gingivitis, is to address the symptoms and the underlying causes. To do this, we provide patients with a range of effective oral hygiene practices, empowering them to take an active role in their gum health.
- Brushing Technique: Utilize a soft-bristle toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Brush in gentle, circular motions, targeting all surfaces of the teeth.
- Flossing Daily: Incorporate daily flossing to remove plaque and debris from between teeth. Proper flossing helps prevent cavities and gum disease.
- Balanced Diet: Maintain a well-balanced diet rich in nutrients for overall oral and systemic health. Limit sugary snacks and acidic beverages.
- Hydration: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to support saliva production, which helps neutralize acids and protect teeth.
- Avoid Tobacco Products: Refrain from using tobacco products, as they contribute to gum disease, tooth decay, and oral cancer.
- Mouthwash Use: Consider using an antimicrobial or fluoride mouthwash as a supplementary measure for enhanced oral hygiene.
Gum Disease Management:
Finally, for patients showing signs of gum disease, we provide targeted treatments to mitigate the progression of gum disease including deep cleaning procedures such as scaling and root planing (pictured below).
Oral Cancer Screening
Ensure Early Detection With Our Cutting Edge VELscope Technology
Our VELscope Oral Cancer Screening Tool
Our commitment to comprehensive well-being extends to advanced oral cancer screening. We employ cutting-edge VELscope technology, a handheld device that enhances our ability to detect early signs of oral abnormalities, including potential cancerous and precancerous lesions.
VELscope screening detects abnormalities like oral cancer that cannot be seen by the human eye
During your dental exam, our skilled professionals incorporate VELscope as part of the screening process. The non-invasive technology uses natural tissue fluorescence to highlight abnormalities that may not be visible to the naked eye. This early detection capability is pivotal in ensuring timely intervention and improving outcomes. The screening is quick, painless, and adds a layer of assurance to our commitment to your overall well-being.
