Oral Cancer Screenings
With the rate of oral cancer growing in America, getting an oral cancer screening is more important than ever before for all of our patients. With the advancements in oral cancer screening technology, we can now pinpoint the start of a problem much sooner- and if an issue is identified, we can treat it before it becomes a major, irreversible problem.
The oral cancer screening is often completed with an ultraviolet light or similar device that allows us to view issues that can't always be detected by the human eye under normal conditions.
Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of tissues and your overall health in the mouth. If you are a smoker or heavy drinker, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit your Bound Brook dentist.
Quite often there can be plaque and tartar that accumulates below your gum line. In this scenario, our hygienists will clean and smooth this area utilized specialized instruments that ensure this area is clean and spotless. If these areas are not kept clean, the entire area can become irritated by the bacteria that reside in plaque and/or tartar. It is essential to have this area checked if you experience bleeding during brushing.
