A beautiful and healthy smile is important in an individual’s life. Although the mouth is a small part of the body, it holds power on overall health and well-being. Therefore our dentistry team at Expressions DentalTM Clinic is committed to providing services like regular teeth checkups, professional dental cleanings and many more services to help keep your smiles healthy for a lifetime. At our clinic, we welcome patients of all ages, offering them a wide range of dental treatments to help keep there mouth, teeth, and gums as healthy as possible.
Even the most diligent tooth brushing and flossing routine will not be able to remove plaque from every part of the tooth. Even a single toothbrush bristle can’t reach certain parts of the tooth. Plaque buildup on the surfaces of teeth starts to harden into tartar in just twelve hours, and once it hardens, it cannot be removed by regular home care aids. Therefore, to ensure your healthiest smile, regular checkups and teeth cleanings are necessary.
A teeth cleaning by a dental hygienist removes plaque, tartar buildup and staining from your teeth and improves your dental health.
Other significant benefits of professional teeth cleaning are as follows:
An oral cancer exam is a visual and physical screening of the oral cavity and connected tissues; reassuring a patient that there are no apparent problems, or trigger early treatment if there are. At Expressions DentalTM, our general dentists perform an oral cancer exam at the first complete exam appointment and at the regular check up appointments. They may suggest frequent home self examinations if the patient is at a higher risk due to one’s lifestyle choices.
Men are twice as likely to get oral cancer as compared to women, and the average age of patients suffering from oral cancer is 60-70 years. Most oral cancers are related to alcohol use, tobacco use (or both), or infection by the human papillomavirus (HPV). (Ref: https://onco.com/about-cancer/oral-cancer/)
Oral cancer spreads quickly, therefore, its early detection is crucial. An oral cancer exam can detect early signs of cancer, and it takes only a few minutes. Our team of dentists and hygienists usually perform the screening during regular dental check-ups. Oral cancer if developed can cause many other problems. So, it is important to keep your mouth in good health and visit your dentist regularly and get checked.
