Dental check-ups and routine dental cleanings should be performed every six months. Dr. Nelson Kanning offers routine dental checkups and dental cleanings in his comfortable Lawson, MO dental office. Dr. Kanning and his team offer patient-focused, personalized dental care to help patients get one step closer to a healthier smile. Getting regular screenings for complex dental concerns like oral cancer and gum disease can help you get treated early. Earlier treatment allows patients the best chance of receiving the treatment they need to restore their oral health.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is one of the most under-diagnosed cancers because patients do not schedule regular screenings with their dentist. If oral cancer is caught in its earliest stages, patients may be able to receive the noninvasive dental treatment they need to improve their oral health. During your screening, we will check for signs of oral cancer like red and white patches in mouth and ulcers, and lumps. At Kanning dental, we offer oral cancer screenings during your routine dental checkup up. If you haven’t scheduled a dental checkup this year, we strongly suggest you contact our Lawson dental office.
Gum Disease Screening
Gum disease is one of the most common oral health concerns. If gum disease (gingivitis) is caught in its earliest stages, it can often be reversed with treatments like scale and root planing or an antibacterial rinse. In advanced stages of gum disease, patients may experience tooth loss. For advanced stages of gum disease, patients may need to undergo surgery to restore their teeth and gum health. Gum disease is preventable with proper oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist. We will screen each patient for gum disease during their visit to our Lawson, MO dental office.
