Preserving Your Dental Health
preventive dentistry is just one of the great dental health services you’ll find at the office of Amy H. See, DDS. Our caring, professional team wants to make sure your mouth feels as good as it looks.
Your visit will include x-rays, a visual and manual oral cancer screening, and a comprehensive exam by Dr. See. Together, you will go over photos of your teeth with Dr. See examining any issues and concerns. At this time, she always asks guests to share what their hopes are for both short- and long-term treatment. She’ll combine her conclusions with your preferences for a manageable oral health outlook that looks magnificent and lasts a lifetime.
Oral Cancer Screenings
As part of your comprehensive exam, Dr. See will perform a visual and manual screening for oral cancer, checking for any unusual signs including unexplained pain or swelling, spots, sores, bleeding, and numbness. Uncovering these potential problems early is just one way we help you maintain your long-term health.
We go high-tech to uncover as much information as possible about your current dental health. Our digital x-rays expose you to less radiation than traditional x-rays and return results in an instant. By using DIAGNOdent laser technology, we can discover and treat tooth decay in its earliest stages, before it’s even visible to the eye. Cone beam imaging provides a 3D picture of your teeth, jaw, and surrounding area. allowing us to accurately assess your needs before discussing more advanced dental care. We like to get the full picture so we can work with you to develop a treatment plan.
Good dental health starts with good dental hygiene. Here at the office of Amy H. See, DDS, we use ultrasonic technology. The ultrasonic sound waves and water lavage get rid of stains and debris, leaving your teeth extra clean.
If you’re dealing with swollen, painful or bleeding gums, you may need more than a routine cleaning. These can all be signs of periodontal disease. Dr. See and her talented team are highly trained in periodontal therapy. We use lasers to destroy problem-causing bacteria lurking in hard-to-reach spots between your teeth and gums. We recommend PerioSciences products, which use natural ingredients to enhance and encourage your mouth’s own antioxidants to fend off disease-causing bacteria. At the most advanced stages, when gums have started to recede, we can perform pinhole gum surgery to restore your gums with minimal pain and recovery time.
Fluoride is a vital tool for good dental health. It can both help prevent tooth decay and repair early damage. At Amy H. See, DDS, we use fluoride varnish to give our guests the best protection against plaque and bacteria. Kids will receive a treatment at every visit, while our adult guests get fluoride as needed. It’s a quick and easy way to ensure strong, healthy teeth.
