Our patient’s oral health is extremely important to us and that is why we strongly suggest routine exams and cleanings every six months. By seeing patients on a routine basis we are able to control plaque build up, and detect possible issue such as decay while they are small. When dental issues are caught early they are much easier and less costly to fix and the chance of losing an extensive amount of natural tooth structure is greatly reduced. This allows the tooth to maintain its natural strength and health. At Sisson Family Dental we employ the advanced technology of the Cavitron, Intraoral Camera and Panorex Imagining for the ability to detect dental problems before they become painful or visible to the naked eye.

Our routine exam includes a thorough exam of your teeth, gums and surrounding structures, x-rays if indicated, a thorough cleaning and fluoride treatment if indicated. An important component of the routine exam includes education. We want all our patients to have the information and tools necessary to be active participants in their goal of optimum oral health.

The routine exam also includes an oral cancer screening. One of the most important aspects of our routine exams is oral cancer screening. In this year alone approximately 35,000 people in the US will be diagnosed with oral cancer. When found early oral cancer has a very high survival rate.
