Cleanings and Prevention

Cleanings and Prevention

Keeping your smile healthy is our top priority. Our cleanings and prevention dental treatments implement advanced diagnostic equipment like digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and 3D scanning equipment to assess the health and integrity of your teeth, bones, and other orofacial structures.
Through early diagnostics, our Marco Island dentists can recommend less-invasive procedures to repair or preserve your dental health. Some of the ways we do this are by providing preventive services like:

Cleanings and Exams

For healthy smiles, we recommend a cleaning and exam every 6 months. These visits help you to avoid gum disease and premature tooth loss in the future. During your visits, we will screen for periodontal infections, tooth decay, and infections that are simpler to address

TMJ Assessments

Do you experience soreness, popping, or clicking of the jaws? TMJ disorder can lead to headaches, muscle pain, and even damage your teeth. Our Marco Island dentists will evaluate the way your jaws function and assess the way your teeth bite together to determine if there are conditions contributing to the joint disorder.

Oral Cancer Screenings

You don’t necessarily have to smoke or drink alcohol to get oral cancer. That’s why we carefully screen each patient for signs of pathology during each exam. If abnormal tissues are noted, we will take a small brush to biopsy the tissues and send them off for microscopic analysis. Early diagnosis of oral cancer is the best way to combat the deadly disease.

Advanced Imaging

With our digital x-rays and high-definition intraoral cameras, you can see exactly the same thing that we do. Plus, we utilize 3D scanning to assess areas for procedures like dental implants or same day implant placement.

For our patients with healthy smiles, we typically recommend a preventive care visit every 6 months. Call Marco Dental Care today to schedule yours!
