We offer routine oral cancer screenings as part of every six-month teeth cleaning and oral exam at our office. Your dentist at Goldstein Garber & Salama will use advanced intraoral cameras to check for potential abnormalities in your mouth that could indicate the presence of oral cancer. In the rare event that we notice a serious issue, we can take a biopsy immediately, ensuring a quick diagnosis. With regular oral cancer screenings at our office, you’ll get peace of mind.
Deep cleanings, also known as “scaling & root planing” are the first step in the treatment of gum disease. In this treatment, one of our doctors will use special dental tools to clean between your teeth and your gums and to smooth out the roots of your teeth. Antibiotics are also often used alongside this procedure to destroy bacteria.
Gum flap surgery may be required for more advanced cases of gum disease. In this procedure, one of our doctors will temporarily move your gums out of the way to expose the roots of your teeth and the jaw bone. These areas will be cleaned and disinfected, then the gums will be sutured shut to promote proper healing.
Gum grafting may be required in advanced cases of gum disease. In this procedure, oral tissue is taken from elsewhere in your mouth and is grafted onto your gums. This reverses gum recession, restores your smile, and protects your teeth.
