At Pacific Dental Group, we are dedicated to assisting our new and existing patients with an individualized dental plan designed to help maintain a healthy smile.
Professional Teeth cleanings are an important part of good oral hygiene and are necessary to maintain the health of your teeth and gums. Our experienced hygienist will remove plaque, tartar and stains from your teeth. Plaque is the sticky film that contains bacteria. These bacteria cause gum disease and tooth decay if not removed through good oral hygiene and regular professional cleanings. Tartar is a hard calcified deposit that forms on the teeth that causes decay. We use special instruments to gently remove plaque and tartar without harm to the teeth.
Oral Cancer Screenings detect cancerous and precancerous conditions in patients. The doctor will examine your mouth for any red or white patches or any unusual sores on your lips, tongue, or the inside of your mouth. Abnormalities that have not cleared after two to three weeks should be examined. Smoking and heavy alcohol use are underlying risk factors for oral cancer. A comprehensive oral cancer screening is part of your regular dental checkup at Pacific Dental Group.
Digital X-rays are a modern technology that is an improved method of detecting decay and damage in teeth compared to traditional x-rays. Our doctor can get a precise picture of your teeth and oral structures with minimal radiation. The images are transferred to our computer screen where the dentist can show you exactly what is going on inside your mouth. Digital x-rays are faster because the images are digital, safer and environmentally friendly.
