A cleaning is a cleaning, right?

If you haven’t already noticed, our hygienists do a lot more than clean your teeth. During your preventive maintenance appointment, our hygienists also screen you for periodontal (gum) disease, and perform an oral cancer exam. (These exams are also routinely performed during periodic doctor exams).

Did you know that periodontal disease is the #1 reason for tooth loss in adults, and that unhealthy gums can contribute to serious health risks such as heart disease, diabetes and even some forms of cancer?

Lastly, did you know that almost 42,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral and throat cancers this year? The 5-year survival rate of those diagnosed is only slightly more than 64 percent? When cancer is detected and treated early, treatment-related health problems are reduced. (http://www.mouthhealthy.org/en/az-topics/o/oral-cancer)
