Family Dentistry Services for Everyone
You know that brushing your teeth at least twice every day and flossing at least once a day is an important component of your family’s oral health. An equally important element is the trip you make to your Allentown dentist for dental cleanings and exams every six months. At these appointments, we’ll freshen your mouth with a thorough cleaning and polishing of your teeth. In addition, we’ll take a close look at the condition of your teeth and gums. To preserve your oral health, we want to find problems sooner rather than later—the sooner we treat, the more likely you are to avoid a dental condition that would require more extensive and more expensive treatment.
Oral Cancer Screening
We also perform a complete oral cancer screening at each dental checkup. Unfortunately, more than 8,000 fatalities every year are the result of an oral or pharyngeal cancer. Many of these could have likely been avoided by an oral cancer screening. Whereas some cancers advance quietly and unknown, oral cancer is marked by several outward signs including a sore that won’t heal, a red or white patch anywhere in the mouth, or a lump or thickened spot of soft tissue.
Children need dental care, too. Believe it or not, you are actually your child’s first dentist. Even before that first little baby tooth appears, you need to clean their gums after each feeding and begin gently brushing as that adorable smile develops. To help your children feel more comfortable when the time comes for their first appointment, Dr. Young and Dr. Enea encourage you to bring the kids along to your appointments. In addition to cleanings and exams, we also offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments to help your children win the battle against tooth decay. And if any of your children participate in sports, then wearing a sportsguard is vitally important. A custom-fitted sportsguard fits comfortably in your child’s mouth and protects teeth, gums, lips, tongue and cheeks. Moreover, current research shows that wearing a sportsguard can reduce the likelihood of a concussion and even lessen the severity of a concussion if one should happen.
