Dentistry involves the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of a wide variety of conditions, disorders, and diseases affecting the teeth, gums, and maxillofacial (associated with the jaw and face) region of the body.
Dr. Doris Giraldo can make sure your teeth and your smile are healthy by providing the following in preventive dental care:
- Regular Exams: At this time Dr. Giraldo takes the time to check tooth by tooth with her dental instruments to look for any abnormalities not seen through radiographs (X-rays).
- Oral Cancer Screening: Dr. Giraldo’s main concern is to maintain optimal oral health. By performing an oral cancer screening she can help find cancer at an early stage. When abnormal tissue or cancer is found early, it may be easier to treat. By the time symptoms appear, cancer may have begun to spread.
- X-rays: We now have a state-of-the-art digital X-ray system which allows us to see your X-rays just seconds after they are taken on the computer. This type of X-ray offers 90 percent less radiation for our patients.
- Periodontal Disease Screening: Periodontal disease is growing fast in the United States. As part of our exam we check for gum bone loss and signs of periodontal disease by measuring the areas above each tooth inside the gums.
These are just some of the things we offer to make sure your teeth are always in good health. This way you can prevent lengthy and time-consuming procedures at the office.
At New Dimension Dentistry, we provide all our patients with the best general dentistry services available.
