Regular dental exams are important for good oral hygiene. Diagnostic and full dental exams and imaging focus on prevention and oral hygiene. Dental exams help to reveal dental problems early, enabling us to offer timely treatment. Our dentist will examine your teeth, jaw, gums, tongue, and other supporting structures. A thorough oral examination often involves x-rays and other visual, oral examinations that reveal abnormalities and underlying oral problems. Early detection of a patient’s oral problems could make a huge difference in a patient’s outcome.
Most oral cancer screenings are conducted during routine dental check-ups. Dr. Tamimi will examine the inside of your mouth to see if you have sores, white or red patches in your mouth. He will also feel and examine the tissues in your mouth to see if you have abnormalities, like lumps. The dentist may also check your neck or throat for any lumps. Why is oral cancer examination so important? According to the American Cancer Society, more than 30,000 oral cancer cases are identified every year. Out of these cases, more than 7,000 patients die. Timely screening and testing increase a patient’s likelihood of beating oral cancer.
The goal of teeth cleaning is to remove plaque and tartar that may have accumulated on your teeth. Plaque, a sticky film that forms on the teeth’s surface, is often packed with bacteria that could lead to dental cavities and gum disease. During a dental cleaning, our dental hygienists will use specialized tools to gently remove dirt from the teeth. Scaling is a non-surgical procedure that removes plaque and tartar on the tooth surface and beneath the gum line. Scaling helps remove dirt in places where brushing and flossing cannot reach. If your teeth surfaces are rough after scaling, our dentist will perform root planning to smooth the teeth’ surface.
A fluoride treatment is recommended for both children and adults. Fluoride application is the delivery of fluoride on the teeth to prevent dental caries. In most cases, our dentists apply fluoride topically on the teeth using varnishes, gels, dentifrices, or mouth rinse. Systemic fluoride delivery entails using drops or tablets, which a patient swallows. However, systemic fluoride supplementation is rare, especially if the public water supplies provide fluoridated water. A fluoride treatment is recommended for people with defects in the tooth enamel due to early cavity formation. People with active cavities or undergoing orthodontic treatment will benefit from fluoride application.
Night Guards are an ideal choice for treating T.M.J. disorders. T.M.J. stands for temporomandibular joint. You could have a T.M.J. disorder if your jaw produces a clicking sound when eating or when you open or close your mouth. A night guard is a dental appliance worn at night that helps to position the jaw to reduce stress on the muscles. People with T.M.J. disorders often grind and clench their teeth, mainly in their sleep. A night guard will protect your teeth’ surface to avoid damage due to grinding and clenching of the teeth.
At Denwest Dental, we try our best to prevent tooth extractions by keeping your oral health in good shape. If it is impossible to save a tooth, tooth extraction may be the best option to prevent further discomfort or the spread of the infection. We will take the necessary steps to reduce discomfort during the tooth extraction process. Our dentist may recommend a tooth extraction if you have an advanced infection or gum disease, a crowded mouth, or impacted teeth. In babies, tooth extraction may be necessary due to the presence of retained baby teeth.

Are you anxious about visiting the dentist? You will feel sufficiently calm when we administer NO2, also known as laughing gas. Nitrous oxide (NO2) sedation provides a great way for our patients to relax while undergoing dental treatment. Nitrous oxide sedation is effective and works instantly. The dentist can adjust the depth of the sedation to get the desired results. Our dentists administer the NO2 through a face mask. The gas is absorbed into the bloodstream through the lungs and helps calm nervous patients promptly. NO2 sedation comes in handy in pediatric dentistry if a child is afraid to undergo a dental procedure.
Endodontics or root canal therapy is a field of dentistry that focuses on the root pulp’s health, which is the inner portion of the tooth. A root canal treatment would be necessary if you have an infection in the tooth’s pulp. Some of the common signs of tooth infection include temperature sensitivity, swelling on the tooth, and pain in the teeth and gums. Many patients are concerned about root canal therapy. Our dentists will take the necessary measures to make you feel more comfortable. A root canal treatment is a common dental procedure. It can help save your natural teeth and prevent extraction and further needs dental bridges or implants.
