Superior dental health starts with preventive measures that combine good home hygiene with proper professional care. We take your oral health very seriously and will work with you to develop a customized dental hygiene plan that incorporates dental examination, tooth cleaning, possible tooth scaling, X-ray and use of other diagnostic equipment to prevent, uncover or treat problems as early as possible.
Dr Reilly and his team incorporate a variety of restorative procedures in the development of a comprehensive treatment plan that will help prevent decay or disease of the teeth, mouth, gums and tongue. General dentists also use restorative dentistry procedures to repair the effects of tooth decay, trauma, defect or disease in these areas of the mouth. At Advanced Dentistry, we offer preventive care at the highest possible level of treatment. We also emphasize one of the most under-used treatments in dentistry: nightguards, which protect your teeth from the damaging effects of clenching and grinding. This unconscious activity can result in abnormal wear patterns on your teeth, periodontal breakdown, and even joint or neuromuscular problems.
There are many types of preventive treatment including:
- Oral Cancer Screening
- Patient Education
- Regular Check-ups
- Sports Mouthguards
One preventive measure that Dr. Reilly insists on is oral cancer screenings. 30,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year – of those newly diagnosed individuals only half will be alive in 5 years. These are staggering statistics, and as part of our commitment to you, you will receive an oral cancer screening at each and every visit – free of charge. It is our way of promising you are receiving the highest possible level of treatment.
