General and Preventive Dentistry
If you’re visiting us for the first time, we usually recommend that you plan to reserve approximately one hour for your new patient checkup. During the visit we will carefully assess your teeth, discuss any concerns with you, and inform you of any findings that we may have.
Preventive Cleanings and Exams
To keep your smile healthy and free of gum disease, we typically recommend a checkup every six months. Our dentists will work with you to pinpoint areas that need more attention, and provide you with the skills you need to care for them. During your exam we will also screen for oral cancer, as well as any swelling or lumps along the lymph nodes of the neck, face, and head. Early diagnosis is the most important factor in combatting oral cancer effectively. Digital x-rays enhance our ability to screen for abnormal areas indicating bone loss or tooth decay that are not visible during your clinical exam. The low level of radiation is less than you receive from the sun on a day spent out at the beach.
Extractions and Wisdom Teeth
Infected or badly decayed teeth may be past the point of restoring. If this is the case, we will recommend having them extracted before the adjacent teeth are harmed. At Aces Dental we also provide comfortable wisdom tooth extractions without having to refer you offsite to an oral surgeon. It’s just one of the ways we make sure that your care is as affordable as possible.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
“Laughing gas” is a safe and effective way to relax during your visit…whether it’s just a cleaning, an extraction, or you’re getting dental implants. You can request nitrous at any time during your appointment. New patients are always welcome at Aces Dental. Our Medicaid dentists accept all insurance plans and provide convenient financing plans.
