Dental Exams and Cleanings
Regular dental exams and cleanings are the foundation of good oral health. We will check your teeth for signs of decay or gum disease during your exam. We will also clean your teeth to remove plaque and tartar buildup.
If you have a tooth that is severely damaged or decayed, we may recommend extracting it to prevent the spread of infection or other complications.
If a tooth is infected, we can perform a root canal to remove the infected tissue from the pulp chamber of the tooth and then fill the chamber with a biocompatible material.
Implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for replacement teeth. They are used to replace missing teeth.
The Importance of Regular Dental Visits
Visiting our dentist regularly is the easiest way to maintain good oral health. Our dentist in Mobile, AL, will thoroughly examine your teeth for signs of decay or disease during your check-up. We will also perform a professional teeth cleaning to remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth.
Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that coats your teeth and causes tooth decay and gum disease. Tartar is a hardened plaque that can only be removed with professional dental instruments. Plaque and tartar can lead to serious oral health problems, such as cavities and periodontal disease.
In addition to checking for signs of oral diseases, we will screen you for oral cancer. Oral cancer is a severe disease that affects thousands of people each year. Early detection is critical to successfully treating the disease. If we detect abnormalities during your exam, we may recommend further testing to determine if you have oral cancer.
