Dental, Gum Disease and Oral Cancer Screenings
Dental checkups are an important part of your regular preventive dentistry visits. Along with thoroughly cleaning your teeth, Dr. Newton and our team will thoroughly check your teeth, gums, and oral tissues to ensure your continued good oral health. If any signs of trouble are detected, then Dr. Newton can recommend an appropriate cosmetic or restorative treatment plan to prevent them from growing worse.
For precise and comprehensive results, we utilize a number of advanced imaging technologies, including digital X-rays and CBCT scanning, which provide detailed digital images of your oral structures.
Periodontal and Oral Cancer Screenings
Periodontal disease is the number one cause of permanent tooth loss in the United States, and is one of the most commonly occurring oral health issues in adults. Every year, 30,000 people are newly diagnosed with various types of oral cancer. The good news is that both diseases are often treated successfully, especially when they’re detected early through regular oral health screenings.
Digital imaging allows Dr. Newton to spot the early, sometimes otherwise unnoticeable signs of periodontal disease so you can receive treatment before it becomes too severe. The advanced VELscope system can highlight tissue abnormalities that might otherwise be undetectable, improving your chances of early oral cancer detection at every visit.
