GENERAL DENTISTRY TREATMENTS FOR MERIDIAN ID
DENTAL HYGIENE | Dental hygiene visits are critical to maintaining optimal oral health. We encourage our patients to undergo routine dental hygiene visits which include cleanings, digital x-rays and oral cancer screenings. Too many people wait until they have cavities, or other dental problems to come in for a visit to our office near Eagle ID. Dental hygiene visits make it possible to prevent major dental issues and bypass the pain and expense associated with neglected teeth.
DEEP SCALING AND ROOT PLANING | Deep scaling and root planing are treatments used to address periodontal gum disease. The scaling removes bacterial deposits and planing smooths the root surfaces to promote gum healing and general oral health.
ORAL CANCER SCREENING | Regular oral cancer screenings are vital to early cancer detection. We check you for any oral abnormalities that may indicate cancerous growths using state of the art technology and also note any abnormalities around the mouth, jaw and neck. Oral cancer screening saves lives.
X-RAYS | X-rays are used as part of our general dentistry exams. They allow us to see the big picture including activity occurring below the teeth and gums. Oral health issues like cavities, wisdom teeth, cancerous or benign growths aren’t visible to the naked eye and require x-rays to properly diagnose. According to the American Dental Association dental x-rays help identify the following conditions:
- Areas between the teeth or fillings that are plagued by decay
- Bone infections
- Developmental issues
- Abscesses or cysts
- Gum disease
