Cleanings & Checkups
The eyes may be the window to the soul, but your smile speaks volumes. Keeping it healthy and bright will ensure that it is saying what you want it to say. Parklane Family Dentistry will help you keep your smile bright and healthy with annual or bi-annual dental checkups and professional cleanings. Regular dental exams give us the opportunity to stop small issues from developing into large, expensive and often painful problems. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” and preventive dentistry is a prime example.
Getting your teeth cleaned professionally is a must at every stage of life. In the early years, it helps prevent cavities from forming. Later in life, professional cleanings keep your teeth healthy, and more importantly, they also keep gum disease at bay. Did you know that many older adults lose their teeth, not to decay, but to gum disease? It’s a silent thief that ruins your oral health without you being aware that damage is occurring.
A visit to Parklane Family Dentistry will help you maintain oral health and keep your teeth and gums functioning properly for a very long time. It makes sense to see the dentist before a problem develops. Do not wait until a visit is more or less mandatory due to the infection of the tooth or gums. With a thorough exam, we can prevent serious issues from cropping up and address any problems that are present.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
When you come to Parklane Family Dentistry for your comprehensive dental exam, we take the time to check with you about every aspect of your oral health. In addition to an in-depth examination of your teeth and gums, including digital x-rays, we also perform an oral cancer screening. This simple examination of your oral soft tissues (tongue, cheeks and lips) could save your life. Only about 20% of the average population has this important exam performed. Oral cancers affect about 50,000 people each year. Of those, approximately one person will die every day. What people often do not realize is that oral cancers have a very high cure rate if they are caught early.
The dental team at Parklane Family Dentistry is committed to providing excellent oral care to all our patients. If you are looking for a dental team that always has your best interests and oral health as a priority, contact us today. We want to keep you and your family members in optimal oral health.
