Dental Health and Preventative Oral Health

While at our office, we make sure that you receive the highest level of service and that our dental work is of the highest quality. To ensure that you maintain great oral health, this level of quality needs to extend into your personal oral hygiene routine. We can help you establish a dental hygiene routine that will keep your teeth healthy and white. If you have any questions about your current hygiene plan please ask us. Your teeth are not the only important part of your mouth. Your gums are essential to oral hygiene as well. We can provide periodontal cleanings and treatment, or refer you to one of our recommended specialists.

Diagnosis and Cleanings

Maintaining good oral hygiene is not only important for the look of your smile, but also for your overall health. A variety of dental and medical problems can develop from poor oral hygiene habits. This includes gum disease, bone loss, infections, tooth loss, bad breath, heart disease, oral cancer, and more. It is important to practice good at-home oral hygiene habits, as well as attend regular dental checkups and cleanings to prevent these problems.

Oral Exam

Good oral health is a sign of good overall health. We’re invested in your overall health and well-being. Our team will listen to your questions and concerns. A dentist’s main focus is not solely teeth, but the head and neck as well. Many diseases have signs and symptoms that can manifest in the mouth. During your routine exams, Dr. Yavner will complete a thorough, comprehensive exam of your head and neck, as well as your hard and soft tissues. We will take into consideration any special needs you have as a result of another health condition. As part of your oral health exam, we will perform an oral cancer screening. This involves looking for lesions and any abnormalities in your mouth. Making regular visits to the dentist and maintaining good oral hygiene habits is essential to preventing oral cancer. According to the National Institute of Cancer, approximately 37,000 oral cancers are diagnosed every year in the United States and more than 90 percent occur in patients older than 45 years.

Cleanings

Maintaining good oral hygiene is not only important for the look of your smile, but also for your overall health. A variety of dental and medical problems can develop from poor oral hygiene habits. This includes gum disease, bone loss, infections, tooth loss, bad breath, heart disease, oral cancer, and more. It is important to practice good at-home oral hygiene habits, as well as attend regular dental checkups and cleanings to prevent these problems.

Periodontal Treatment and Maintenance

Periodontal maintenance is the foundation of dentistry. Periodontal disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults. Many signs may go unnoticed because it is virtually pain-free. Without regular cleanings and dental exams, you are at risk of developing gum disease. Our soft tissue management services help treat gum disease before it becomes a severe problem. Non-surgical ways to prevent periodontal disease are scaling and root planing.

The process of removing tartar from the surface of teeth is scaling. Root planing is the process of smoothing out root surfaces and removing infected tooth structures. Our soft tissue management services are designed to reduce the need for periodontal surgery.
