Most of the conditions that negatively affect your smile can be avoided with regular care. Your team at Corbett Family Dentistry is committed to answering your questions about proper hygiene and to providing you with the most advanced preventive dentistry.
Health of Gums and Supporting Bone
Keeping a beautiful, healthy smile for life involves more than just monitoring the condition of your teeth. In fact, much of your long-term health and comfort comes from having healthy gums, underlying bone, and other oral supportive structures. We will help you maintain your complete oral health and will have any necessary preventive therapy available should a concern arise.
Examinations and Professional Cleanings
Most of us are familiar with the old adage that one should visit his or her dentist every six months. Corbett Family Dentistry specializes in advanced healing and in restoration of dental issues. Each examination includes elements such as oral cancer screenings and bite assessments, as well as a smile analysis. In fact, you might not even realize you are receiving such an advanced examination of your teeth. Still, each time you leave our office, you can rest assured that your smile is in optimal health and that it looks its best.
Regular Preventive Care
The term “regular preventive care” refers to all of the services you are receiving when you come in for your bi-yearly evaluation and professional cleaning. Some of these services you may be familiar with, such as fluoride treatments. However, you may not even be aware that you are also receiving other services, such as oral cancer screenings. Our team pays very close attention to a myriad of checkpoints regarding your complete dental health, and should any areas of concern be spotted, they remain ready with the optimal treatment option.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer affects tens of thousands of Americans every year, and one case in four is fatal. As with most cancers, the key to beating the disease is catching it before it progresses to a later stage. With early detection from a routine oral cancer screening, there is a 90% success rate of cure after diagnosis. A trusted dentist is truly your only line of defense against oral cancer. Gain the peace of mind that comes with a regular oral cancer screening from Corbett Family Dentistry. With the help of the latest dental technology, even a diagnosis of oral cancer can be successfully treated through early detection.
Fluoride is a mineral that is found naturally in many things we eat or drink. It is nature’s way of helping prevent cavities. Professional strength (in-office fluorides) and low strength (home fluorides) each play important roles in helping to keep your teeth for a lifetime. Professional fluorides make teeth stronger and even heal weakened areas, while home fluorides assist in this process. In the lifelong fight against cavities, both adults and children benefit from both in-office treatment and home fluorides.
Most Americans experience some form of periodontal disease, often without realizing it. Periodontal disease is chiefly responsible for adult tooth loss, bleeding gums, bad breath, and receding gums. The truth is, periodontal disease is easily prevented with proper hygiene, home care, and professional treatment. If diagnosed in its early stages, gum disease treatments are easier, less invasive, and more effective. Your visit includes a complete evaluation of your gums and supportive tissues. At Corbett Family Dentistry, you will have access to advanced periodontal therapy to heal and restore your oral health.
Growth and Development Evaluations
Corbett Family Dentistry enjoys seeing patients of all ages. Our youngest patients are seen regularly to ensure proper growth and development of their primary teeth. With a panoramic X-ray, we ensure that their permanent teeth are developing properly, and we will work with the patients through their adolescent years to help guide them, with the help of an orthodontist, if necessary, to achieve the best smile they can have.
Your enjoyable dental experience depends on your comfort and safety. Our team utilizes the latest technological advances.
