Every patient can benefit from regular evaluations for this disease. Dentists have advanced training and experience with diseases that affect the oral and facial structures, making them the ideal medical practitioners to complete your regular examinations. Not sure your dentist provides oral cancer screening during your six month preventive dentistry exams? Give them a call to ask about this service. In most cases, these screenings are so fast and comfortable you might not even notice they’re happening.

However, when you look in the mirror, you now see some changes to your teeth and gums. Your smile just is not what it used to be despite your preventive efforts. Age can cause significant changes to your oral health and the appearance on your teeth. In fact, how they look can show your age just as much as wrinkles or gray hair. You can help to turn back the hands of time by making simple changes to your daily life.

Close up.Even though we all do our best, most people are unable to prevent tooth decay, wear, and damage for their whole lives. When tooth decay or minor damage occurs, fillings are used to replace the lost tooth structure and restore patients’ smiles. At Green Hills, we use composite resin to create the most natural looking fillings that strengthen damaged tooth enamel and last for years. Don’t wait for your dental checkup. If you notice toothache, sensitivity, discoloration, or signs of wear around a tooth, call us to schedule an appointment right away. Tooth decay is often the cause of these concerns, and it may continue to spread destroying more of the tooth if left untreated.
