Family and General Dentistry:
General dentistry provides routine care for your family. This includes routine checkups, oral cancer screenings, teeth cleaning and cavity repair.
What to expect are your first appointment?
X-rays: This is essential to detect cavities, bone loss, tumors, cysts and developmental anomalies.
Gum Tissue examination: Check and evaluate the gum tissue and bone levels for signs of gum tissue disease
Cavity detection: Visual, physical examination of the teeth to check for cavities. Furthermore, Dr. Nugent also uses a cavity detecting laser to help verify cavities.
Check existing fillings: Examine current fillings, crown, bridges…etc.
Oral Cancer screening: Dr. Nugent or the hygienist will check for lumps, red or white patches or recurring sore areas. Checking for early changes in the mouth can help discover suspicious lesions sooner. When found early, oral cancers have an 80 to 90 % survival rate.
