Dental Hygiene Appointments
We offer professional cleanings by a hygienist to remove tartar in order to detect cavities, gingivitis and periodontal disease. A general examination is recommended every 6 months. This includes tooth scaling, polishing with fluoride, flossing and debridement if too much tartar has accumulated.
At Jerman Family Dentistry, we believe in using advanced technology to bring our patients the most accurate diagnoses and treatment available. Dental x-rays provide valuable information that your dentist could not detect otherwise. They allow the dentist to see what is happening beneath the visible oral tissues. They pose a smaller risk than many undetected and untreated dental problems.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Jerman Family Dentistry is committed to helping you maintain great overall health as well as oral health, so we vigilantly screen you for oral cancer at each checkup. Regular screenings allow us to investigate any abnormalities we see at the earliest possible stages so that you have the best chances of a full recovery if oral cancer is diagnosed.
