Dental Cleaning & Exam
Oral Cancer Screening
During your biannual check-up, your teeth will be expertly cleaned by one of our experience hygienists, who will remove plaque and tartar, polish your teeth and floss to assess the health of your gums. Our Hygienists are licensed and fully trained to perfect your teeth. Your dentist will then determine if you need a cavity filling, evaluate your existing restorations, review your current X-rays and screen for early signs of oral cancer and gum disease.
If you experience tension headaches or migraines throughout the day, your symptoms may be a result of involuntary teeth grinding, also referred to as “bruxism,” during the night. To prevent these muscle contractions, our team can create a custom-fitted nightguard during your general dentistry appointment that will relax your jaw and help you sleep better.
At Arcadia Dental Franklin, we can also create customized mouthguards for individuals who regularly participate in sports. A mouthguard is an essential preventive dental care tool for athletes who wish to protect their teeth, lips, gums and cheeks from sports-related injuries.
Digital X-rays serve as a valuable, state-of-the-art preventive dental care tool, offering significant advantages over conventional X-rays, such as less radiation emission, more comfortable sensors and instant digital results.
Thorough preventive dental care will not only keep your teeth clean and polished, it can also save your life. In the fight against oral cancer, early detection is key – and excellent general dentistry services will aid in diagnosing the disease before it becomes life-threatening. At Arcadia Dental Franklin, our highly-experienced specialists provide patients with a comprehensive oral cancer screening. After an extensive visual examination of the gums and soft tissues, we’ll use high-tech devices and digital X-rays to detect potentially-cancerous lesions and tumors before they cause symptoms.
