A professional dental cleaning is recommended at least twice each year to help prevent gum disease and decay.

Oral Cancer Screening

The chances of surviving oral cancer are 80-90 percent if the condition is diagnosed early! It is essential to have regular oral cancer screenings in order to detect any irregularities in the earliest stage possible. At Dental Enhanced, we offer painless VELscope® oral cancer screening procedures. The VELscope® system can provide patients with a very thorough screening, using state-of-the-art diagnostic technology to illuminate areas inside your mouth that may be potentially cancerous. Oral cancer does not typically show symptoms in its early stages – VELscope® makes it possible to see any abnormalities that may not be visible to the naked eye. The procedure takes only about two minutes to complete, and it can be part of your regular oral exam. At least one oral cancer screening each year is recommended for patients who do not use tobacco products. It is recommended that patients who use tobacco products have at least two screenings each year.

Root Canal Therapy

Teeth that are affected by severe damage and decay can often be treated with root canal therapy. Infection in the pulp of a tooth can lead to extreme pain and an abscess in the area of the tooth. This condition can lead to serious health problems, including heart attack and stroke, if left untreated. A root canal removes the tooth’s pulp and destroys the bacteria. The chamber of nerves under the tooth is then sealed with a filling material, and a custom-designed porcelain crown is attached to the tooth to strengthen it and improve its appearance.

Scaling and Root Planing

Deep scaling and root planing is a commonly performed technique to help patients affected by gum disease. In this procedure, plaque and tartar that collect around the roots of the teeth are diminished so that gum disease does not get worse. Once the scaling and root planing procedure is complete, an advanced laser will be used to seal the gums, speed up the healing process, and reduce discomfort following treatment.

Laser Decontamination / Laser Bacterial Reduction (LBR)

Laser decontamination and bacterial reduction provides our team with another option for minimizing bacteria, viruses, and germs in the mouth to improve patients’ health and safety. We use diode lasers for laser bacterial reduction (LBR) as a first line of defense in our preventive and therapeutic approach to patient care. The laser helps to mitigate the potential for periodontal infection, as well as provide treatment for existing periodontal infection. The diode laser device is a portable machine that has a fiber optic cable about the size of a fishing line attached to a small handpiece. When we turn on the laser, a light comes through the fiber optic line, allowing us to shine it like a flashlight around the patients’ gums. The light from the laser can comfortably eliminate harmful bacteria that causes infection and inflammation. This inflammation can also affect other parts of our body, as well as create gingivitis infection and periodontitis. When these conditions go untreated, they can destroy the bone and soft tissue that support the teeth, which leads to tooth loss and other serious complications. LBR is designed to be quick and painless, so there is no need for dreaded injections during treatment. Patients typically experience little discomfort, and there should not be a need for special management at home after the treatment.
