Oral Cancer Screening

Oral Cancer Screening

An oral cancer screening is an examination performed by your dentist with the specific intent of looking for signs of cancerous or precancerous conditions in your mouth.

Oral cancer screening is performed with the goal of detecting cancer at the earliest stage possible when the treatment options and chance for a cure are at their highest.

Contact our office today if you have concerns about oral cancer or to schedule a proactive screening.

Oral Cancer Screening

The inside of the mouth is normally lined with a special type of skin (mucosa) that is smooth and coral pink in color. Any alteration in this appearance could be a warning sign for a pathological process. The most serious of these is oral cancer.

We recommend performing an oral cancer self-examination monthly and remember that your mouth is one of your body’s most important warning systems. Do not ignore suspicious lumps or sores.

Laser Assisted Periodontal Disease Treatment

LANAP™ is a gentle, conservative, non-invasive method of treating gum disease without cutting, suturing or removing tissue. Using a precision laser, the Doctor is able to kill up to 99% of the disease-causing bacteria in the periodontal pockets. Because there is no defense against the laser, the bacteria can not adapt and avoid elimination as with antibiotic treatment.

Periodontal Disease Treatment

Periodontal disease is an infection caused by the bacteria found in plaque, the thin biofilm that constantly forms around our teeth. In response to these bacteria, our immune system produces toxins. Unfortunately, these toxins also target our gums and other supportive tissues, resulting in the infection known as periodontal disease. Without treatment, periodontal disease can have serious consequences for your oral health.

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling is a [non-surgical] deep cleaning measure that includes removing plaque from above and below the gumline. The root is also smoothened through planing to allow the tissue to heal and reattach itself to the tooth. Local anesthesia is applied to numb the targeted area and make the procedure much more comfortable. Antibiotics may be recommended as a means of controlling the toxic bacteria from spreading further that cause periodontitis.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease or injuries. The bone is either obtained from a tissue bank or your own bone is taken from the jaw, hip or tibia (below the knee). Sinus bone grafts are also performed to replace bone in the posterior upper jaw.

TMJ Treatment

The terms TMJ and TMD are often used interchangeably, but they aren’t the same thing. The TMJ is the jaw joint, and a TMD is a problem with the joint.

Routine and Deep Cleaning

There are two parts to your Smiles on Florida visit – examination and cleaning. Your exam will check for cavities, plaque, and tartar on your teeth.

Dental Crowns

Decay or trauma can cause loss of tooth structure and can compromise function as well as aesthetics. Extensive loss of tooth structure can best be replaced with a restoration that covers your entire tooth as in a crown. This “full coverage” restoration can strengthen your tooth and in the hands of an expert can provide a long lasting esthetic and functional result.

Dentures and Partials

We know that life with dentures and partials can be both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, it's important to remove teeth that are painful, broken down and infected, yet on the other hand, improperly made dentures used to replace those missing or extracted teeth can make eating, drinking and speaking very difficult.
