Diagnosis El Segundo and Carson
In only the most extreme and necessary cases, such as when its roots are severely damaged beyond repair, we may extract a tooth in preparation for a restorative dentistry procedure, such as dentures. If you have any questions about tooth extraction, please contact us today.
Examination of the Teeth and Gums
The intraoral camera is a revolutionary diagnostic dental tool that allows us to more easily identify potential problems within the mouth early on. The tiny intraoral camera can be inserted into a patient’s mouth, taking pictures of the teeth and displaying the images on a computer screen. Using the intraoral camera saves time and makes problems easily visible to both patient and doctor. Patients can view the areas we will be working on, making procedures more understandable. The accompanying software also provides clear and accurate data so that the best treatment options can be selected. To learn more about the intraoral camera, please contact our office today.
Oral Cancer Screening
Even if you are not experiencing any of the symptoms of oral cancer (such as a small, discolored lesion or bump located in the mouth area), it is best to receive regular oral cancer screenings to ensure that you remain in the peak of health. Our staff is trained to provide with all the information when this procedure takes place.
If you are considering braces or any other level of mouth gear, let us screen your current teeth alignment. This will increase the efficiency for when you are fitted at a later date.
