Radiographs can help to assess tooth decay and periodontal disease. In children, radiographs are also used to evaluate growth and development of the mouth.
Common therapies offered
- General screening
We will screen your teeth for signs of tooth decay, examine your bite to make sure that you can chew properly, and check your temporo-mandibular(jaw) joints for signs of problems.
- Preventive therapy for pre-cancerous lesions
We will screen for pre-cancerous changes in your oral tissues, head and neck. We will check your head, neck and oral tissues for lumps, masses, growths, red or white patches, and recurring sore areas.
- Oral care regimen
We will teach the best way to keep the mouth healthy. We will review the brushing and flossing techniques, discuss good dietary habits, and may suggest additional tools to help keep the mouth clean.
