Are You Looking for a Dentist for a Dental Exam in Florida?

Our dentists can help protect your smile and your oral health in a comfortable, relaxing environment. We love seeing our patients look their best and smile confidently. We offer a full range of dental services, including preventative exams. Don’t worry if you have not had a routine exam in a long time, we offer non-judgmental care.

Healthy adults should have a dental exam twice a year according to the American Dental Association. This preventative measure lets your dentist catch small problems early, before they turn into major dental problems. If you have gum disease or another oral health issue, your dental may want to see you more often.

Typically, your dentist will order x-rays and you’ll have your teeth cleaned before your exam. During your exam, our dentist will check for:

  • Decay
  • Evidence of teeth grinding
  • Oral cancer
  • Gum disease
  • Bone loss
  • Loose fillings or crowns

If your dentist finds any issues, he or she will discuss suggested treatment options with you. You can ask questions and decide what you want to do. It will always be clear what is necessary and what is elective. If our dentist does not find any problems, you’ll make an appointment for your next dental exam.

Call us to schedule a routine. You will find that we are concerned about our patient’s experience at our office. We are attentive to your needs and thorough in our respective jobs.

Where Can I Get Periodontal Treatment or a Dental Cleaning?

If you notice that your gums bleed when you brush your teeth or your gums look red and swollen, you may have gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease. This condition is reversible with treatment. If you ignore gingivitis, it can turn progress to a later stage of gum disease and lead to tooth loss. You could also have gingivitis from improper and overly vigorous brushing. Our dentist or dental hygienist can show you how to keep your teeth clean without harming your gums.

Treating advanced gum disease, either periodontal disease or advanced periodontal disease, involves a deep cleaning, which removes the tartar trapped beneath the gum line. You’ll receive a local anesthetic to numb the area. Getting gingivitis treatment as soon as you notice the signs can help you avoid a deep cleaning or more invasive treatment.

You can lessen your chances of needing gum disease treatment or contracting gingivitis by having your teeth professionally cleaned twice a year to remove plaque buildup. You can diligently brush and floss, but only a dentist or dental hygienist can scrape off the stubborn tartar that builds up at the gum line. Dental cleaning isn’t painful, but if you have a buildup of tartar, our dentist can apply a topical anesthetic to prevent you from feeling any discomfort. In addition to helping you avoid gum disease, professional cleanings can remove minor stains and leave your teeth sparkling clean and your breath fresh.

Can I Get a Bad Breath Remedy from a Dentist?

Halitosis, the medical name for chronic bad breath, is a problem for more than 25 percent of Americans. Everyone gets bad breath occasionally, usually from something they ate. If you cannot get rid of your bad breath by avoiding certain foods, call our office to make an appointment with one of our dentists. A professional teeth cleaning and recommendations for products to use at home is usually enough to solve the problem. In many cases, improper oral hygiene habits cause bad breath. Our dentist will also check for untreated decay. If he or she cannot find the cause, your dentist will refer you to your primary care provider to determine if there is a medical reason for your bad breath.

Do I Need an Annual Oral Cancer Screening?

If you are over age 18, our dentist will screen for oral cancer annually during your routine dental exam. The screening is quick and painless. Even if you have no risk factors, such as tobacco use, the screening is essential. People with no known risk factors can still get oral cancer. Early detection is vital since the prognosis is good if oral cancer is caught early. If oral cancer goes undiagnosed, it can be both life-threatening and disfiguring.
