Family Dentistry Services at iTooth Family Dentistry
Complete dental exams twice a year will help us identify possible oral health problems in their preliminary stages. We might take X-rays to support our visual exam for a detailed diagnosis of the oral cavity. We will look into various factors like cavities, tartar deposits, gum disease, cysts and lesions on the soft tissues, and many more. We will recommend suitable treatment based on the information gathered.
Teeth cleanings play a critical role in your oral health care regime. They help avert tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. The cleanings should be accompanied by the correct home care routine. At iTooth Family Dentistry, we provide efficient cleanings to maintain your oral health throughout your lifetime.
Lack of gum care can lead to tooth loss. Gum ailments are characterized by swelling and redness that is prone to bleeding during brushing and flossing. Fortunately, it is easy to address gum conditions if they are identified early. If we observe any indications of progressive gum disease, we may recommend a scaling and root planing treatment.
Oral care is a significant part of your child's dental health. Hence, scheduling regular dental exams will allow us to monitor their oral cavity and ensure the proper development of adult teeth.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer often does not display symptoms until it has advanced too far. Hence we offer comprehensive oral cancer screenings during your routine dental exams to help us recognize early signs of oral cancer.
