Dental Checkups & Cleanings
Our team of dental professionals perform detailed and comprehensive examinations and cleanings to catch the early signs of dental disease and remove harmful plaque and tartar from the mouth in a gentle and effective manner. During the checkup, we’ll closely examine all of your oral structures, including your teeth, gums, oral tissue, throat, and other areas for issues, then provide a recommendation for treatment as needed. During your cleaning, your hygienist will gently remove plaque and it’s calcified form tartar.
Oral Cancer Screening
Dentists are in a unique position to catch the early signs of oral cancer not just because they pay more attention to the mouth, but also because patients should be seeing their dentist at least twice a year for routine checkups. Since you likely only see your general practitioner once a year, it’s just another reason why staying committed to routine dental appointments is so important. During your exam, we’ll keep an eye out for the signs of oral cancer, then refer you to another doctor if necessary so they can provide a more concrete diagnosis.
Keeping up with your child’s oral health is crucial at every stage of development. Baby teeth need to be protected so that permanent teeth have time to grow as well. Our services are designed to not only protect their oral health, but make them feel comfortable during their appointment. Dr. Cobb and our team members are always patient and accommodating when providing care to your youngest family members, whether it’s a cleaning or dental filling to damaged teeth.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
If you find yourself struggling to get a good night’s sleep, it could be due to undiagnosed sleep apnea. This condition forces you awake several times throughout the night because air is not properly flowing through your mouth and into your lungs. With sleep apnea treatment from Dr. Cobb, you can address the cause of your sleep apnea at its source, improve airflow during sleep, and avoid the health consequences associated with this often undiagnosed condition.
