In order to adequately determine the right treatment plan for each individual patient, we offer detailed examinations that track any changes in your oral health. We focus on early detection of issues, and customize our treatments so you get what you need. No pressure, no unnecessary procedures. Just a happy, healthy smile.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Even if you aren’t subject to risk factors such as tobacco or alcohol use, there’s still a possibility you’ll develop oral cancer. Early detection makes a big difference. That’s why we combine visual and manual screening methods with the innovative technology of VELscope Enhanced Oral Assessment System. We check your mouth and tongue for signs of tissue abnormalities, and identify any cancerous or precancerous areas.
We get a great view of your mouth, thanks to our digital and panoramic x-rays. These high definition images give us an accurate representation of your jaw, bone structure, and tooth development, all while using very little radiation. This technology allows you to make educated decisions about your treatment.
There’s nothing like the remarkable feeling of a clean mouth. We make plaque and tartar buildup disappear with our professional cleanings. Our hygienists use Cavitron magnetostrictive and Piezo ultrasonic scalers to remove debris from your mouth gently and effectively. We recommend visiting us for a professional cleaning every six months to prevent gum disease. Let your smile sparkle.
The key to eliminating adult tooth loss is early diagnosis of gum disease. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of adult tooth loss. In addition to traditional periodontal treatments, we use ARESTIN® to fight bacteria that cause gum disease. Our proactive approach to great periodontal health combats plaque buildup along the gum line and helps prevent infections.
Anyone who suffers from temporomandibular joint disorder understands how uncomfortable life can be. We offer a customized nightguard which helps alleviate some of the pressure of TMJ symptoms. The mouthguard fits perfectly and comfortably, so your jaw muscles get a break and you wake up without pain. Contact us today to see if our mouthguards are right for you.
We offer fluoride treatments to adults and children at every visit. When applied topically to your teeth, fluoride replenishes minerals to strengthen enamel and helps prevent decay. Fluoride treatments also decrease sensitivity in the teeth, making it less painful to eat or drink hot or cold items.
Patients who grind their teeth at night will find comfort in our customized nightguards, which prevent damage to the teeth and lessen jaw discomfort. Our mouthguards are also perfect for athletes, as wearing a custom-fitted guard can protect teeth from injury during activity.
We want you to be comfortable every time you visit. That’s why we offer nitrous oxide to any of our patients who are nervous about a specific procedure. We’ll help you relax. Nitrous oxide wears off quickly, so you can get back to your day without feeling any long lasting effects.
Dental emergencies are unpredictable and always seem to happen at the worst possible time. We understand. We set aside time in our daily schedule specifically to accommodate our patients with dental emergencies. We strive to see you the same day the emergency arises. Emergencies can’t wait. Neither will you.
Our dental care is amazing because of our advanced technology. Our computerized treatment rooms allow you to make the right choices about your care, in the privacy of your room. In order to help you understand your options, we use Guru Patient Education software to optimize communication between our patients and Dr. Marsh. Our technology doesn’t stop there, though. We also use intraoral cameras to give you the same view as the dentist of the inside of your mouth, and our soft tissue laser offers advanced cold sore treatments, as well as painless gum and soft tissue procedures.
