Preventative Care

Preventative Care is extremely important no matter what your age. By practicing good oral hygiene habits and attending annual checkups, you will be able to maintain your oral health for many more years. A few tips to maintaining your oral health:

  • Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste & a soft bristle
  • Floss once a day
  • Eat a balanced diet
  • Ask about dental sealants
  • Regular checkups every six months

Dental Exams and Cleanings

Although it is necessary to routinely brush and floss your teeth on your own, it is essential to have regular exams and cleanings by your dentist. It is recommended to see your dentist every six months to ensure your oral health is at its very best. During your visit, your dentist will thoroughly exam your teeth, gums and give you an X-ray to see if there are any underlining health problems. Your exam will end with a thorough cleaning by our best dental hygienists.

By attending routinely exams and cleanings, you will be able to: 

  • Prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath
  • Save money by avoiding costly and extensive dental procedures
  • Keep your teeth white by reducing staining from food and drinks
  • Shorten the time spent in your dentist’s office
  • Have a smile that will last a lifetime

Oral Cancer Screenings

Here at Lakeport Dental Care, we make the effort to include oral cancer screenings in your routinely checkups. Our team is trained to identify early signs and symptoms. Even though these signs can be caused by other less serious problems, it is important to rule out the possibility of oral cancer.

Symptoms of oral cancer:

  • Red or white spots or sores anywhere in the oral cavity
  • A sore that bleeds easily or does not heal
  • A lump, thickening, or rough spot
  • Pain, tenderness, or numbness anywhere in the mouth or on the lips
  • Difficulty chewing, swallowing, speaking, or moving the jaw or tongue

To help prevent oral cancer: 

  •  Avoid all tobacco products and only drink alcohol in moderation
  • Maintain a healthy, balanced diet
  • Limit your exposure to the sun and always wear UV-A/B-blocking
  • Oral Cancer Screenings
