During Your Checkup...
At your checkup, our staff will inspect your soft tissues for oral cancer, periodontal disease, and other problems. Then, the dentist will look at each tooth to assess any problems you may have such as tooth decay, cracks, and even old dental work. Old dental work can sometimes wear out will need to be replaced. Our team can spot any old dental work that may need to be fixed and will happily replace any metal fillings, inlays, onlays, and crowns with tooth-colored alternatives.
