Your checkup will include a thorough oral exam to look for any signs of disease in your teeth, gums, tongue, lips, and jaw. Depending on several factors, we may perform instant digital x-rays, which are much safer and more detailed than traditional x-ray film. Some patients may also need more in-depth images with our Cone Beam CT scanner (CBCT).
We may also perform a Velscope® scan, which is a simple, quick way to detect the earliest forms of oral cancer.
For your cleaning, we use the highly efficient technology known as ultrasonic scaling. This allows us to minimize treatment time while maximizing your comfort.
Finally, the hygienist will polish your teeth to give you a bright, clean smile.
Of course, another thing you can expect from our highly trained team is education regarding any findings, recommended treatment options, and tips to improve oral health.
If you have kids, they need a dentist too. And since we treat our patients like family, we are here for your whole family.
Want you and the kids treated simultaneously to minimize your time at the dentist? With four hygienists, three assistants, and two dentists, we’ve got you covered.
Need treatment for moderate to severe gum disease but not interested in gum surgery with a scalpel? LANAP® gum treatment utilizes a minimally invasive laser to help gums heal while regenerating bone and soft tissue.
This treatment option is proven safe and effective and restores gum health quicker and with less pain than gum surgery.
While the number one cause of gum recession is gum disease, it can also be the result of other culprits, such as genetics or brushing too forcefully.
If receding gums leave you with pain or sensitivity – or if you just don’t like how they look – The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique could be an option for you. Unlike traditional treatment for receding gums, which requires uncomfortable gum grafting, this option is minimally invasive. As a result, patients experience less post-treatment discomfort.
Did you know scientists have evidence that poor oral health can cause or worsen diseases in your body, including Alzheimer’s? Oral pathogens that cause gum disease and tooth decay can get into your bloodstream and affect other organ systems. Just as important is that the reverse can also be true. Systemic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes, can also cause or worsen issues with your oral health.
Since we care about you as a person, we focus on more than the health of your teeth and gums. We will take measures to improve your overall health and provide you with education to help you make smart health decisions.
Your treatment plan may involve taking a sample of your saliva for advanced Oral DNA testing. This allows us to determine which, if any, bacteria are present in your mouth that put you at risk for oral or systemic diseases.
Does snoring keep you or your bedmate up at night? Loud snoring could indicate Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), causing a lot more problems than just lost sleep.
With OSA, patients stop breathing while they sleep. In severe cases, this can occur hundreds of times a night, causing oxygen levels to drop alarmingly low. These low oxygen levels can cause a myriad of consequences.
If you or your bedmate snore, we have a simple solution that helps you sleep soundly and quietly without those pauses in breathing.
No matter what your oral health needs, our team at Hawkins Family Dentistry can help. To explore your treatment options, contact us online or call us at (804) 897-9800.
