Oral Cancer Screening

The Risks and Realities of Oral Cancer

Oral cancer takes one American life every hour. This unsettling statistic has remained almost unchanged for the last 40 years. With early detection, oral cancer has a 90% cure rate, which is why we treat oral cancer screenings seriously. We perform a visual inspection for oral cancer at every six-month checkup and cleaning. If our hygienist or Dr. Paulson sees anything that gives them cause for concern, they’ll refer you to an oral surgeon. This screening could literally save your life!

Custom Dental Mouthguards

Improved Athletics and Protected Teeth

Your ability to draw in a full breath increases your power and strength whether you're simply training or playing an active sport such as basketball or football. A properly fitted sportsguard aligns your jaw and improves your air capacity. The one-size-fits-all guards found in stores tend to be a sloppy fit and can even interfere with proper breathing during an active performance. We offer custom-fitted mouthguards and sportsguards. Not only will these custom guards properly align your mouth and improve your breathing capacity, they'll reduce the risk you'll accidently damage or a knock out a tooth. Within the United States, an estimated 5 million teeth are knocked out or injured every year. Don't let this happen to you! Ask us about custom-fitted mouthguards.
