The backbone of healthy teeth and gums, dental examinations are crucial for long-lasting wellness. During these routine visits, your doctor will evaluate your teeth and gums, as well as your jaw joints, oral soft tissues, and surrounding structures. Regular dental visits can allow your doctor to detect problems while they are still in the early stages. This means less invasive, more affordable treatment. >> Learn more about professional dental exams
Oral bacteria breed in the plaque and tartar that accumulate on the teeth. Routine brushing and flossing can keep these microbes at bay for a time. However, after a few months, the bacteria begin to repopulate. At this point, a professional cleaning is required to return the levels to baseline once again. That is where our team comes in. During a visit with your hygienist, he or she will remove plaque, debris, and other irritants to keep your teeth and gums healthy. >> Learn more about professional dental cleanings
Visual examinations are excellent for assessing occlusion, soft tissue lesions, or other dental issues. However, dental x-rays are necessary to evaluate the health of the teeth roots and the jawbone that supports them. At our practice, patient safety is our number one priority. That is why we use digital x-rays, which emit far less radiation than traditional radiograph units. >> Learn more about digital radiography
The same oral bacteria that cause tooth decay can also lead to gingivitis and gum disease. When plaque and tartar are not routinely removed from the teeth with brushing and flossing, the gums begin to react to these irritants. As a result, the gums become red, inflamed, and tender. They may even bleed when you brush. At National Dental, we provide specialized gum treatments that can eradicate oral bacteria and keep your smile healthy. >> Learn more about periodontal care
Lifelong oral health begins in childhood. At our practice, we are committed to fostering a comfortable and fun atmosphere for even the youngest patients. In addition to providing dental cleanings and examinations, we can also educate your child about healthy oral hygiene habits. Our skilled hygiene team can even help your child develop his or her own brushing and flossing regimen at home, to keep their teeth and gums healthy between dental visits. >> Learn more about dentistry for kids
The Oral Cancer Foundation reports that only 57 percent of patients diagnosed with the condition will survive past the five-year mark. This is a frightening statistic. However, fatalities from oral cancer do not generally happen because of the difficulty in treating the disease. Deaths primarily occur because many of these cases are diagnosed too late. Prevention is key. If oral cancer is detected while it is still in its early stages, there is a much higher chance that it can be treated successfully. A five-minute assessment in a dental office can literally save your life. That is why our team at National Dental performs an oral cancer screening at every appointment. >> Learn more about oral cancer screenings
