During your exam, your dentist will check your current fillings to make certain they are not decayed, damaged or loose. If any cavities are discovered, they may also need to be filled. If you have a cavity that isn't filled, it can become larger over time and cause oral health complications or more invasive restoration. Most fillings are done by removing the decayed portion of the tooth, then filling the tooth with composite material that is tooth colored. Fillings are typically done in 1 appointment.
Did you know that oral health is an important component to overall health? As part of your examination, we will perform an oral cancer screening to check for signs of oral cancer.
Early detection of oral cancer is essential to treating it successfully. Oral cancer occurs when there is abnormal cell growth in your oral tissues, such as the mouth, lips, tongue or throat. Individuals over age 45 are at a greater risk, as are tobacco users. It is important for you to watch for signs and symptoms that include:
-White or red spots in your oral tissues
-Bleeding or numbness
-Lumps, texture or color changes
-Sores or patches that do not heal
-Changes in taste
Please let us know if you have any concerns or questions pertaining to our oral cancer screening.
