During routine dental visits, we can take the time to evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums, the function of your bite and screen for a range of oral health-related concerns: gum disease, tooth decay, oral cancer and occlusal disorders. Our team also discusses your lifestyle habits, medical history and other factors affecting your long-term dental health.
Monitoring your dental health during routine visits can often prevent the development of more complex problems and allows conservative treatment options for cavities or gum disease to be effective in treating early-stage concerns.
