We offer many valuable general dentistry procedures for your dental health in Juno Beach, including:

DENTAL CHECKUPS: As a preventative general dentistry measure, it is important to schedule regular check-ups before any dental health problems arise in Palm Beach Gardens & Jupiter. Regular checkups (ideally every six months) will help encourage the best dental health, help your teeth stay cleaner, last longer and can prevent painful problems from developing. At Weinberg Dentistry we perform a thorough general dentistry examination of your teeth, gums and mouth, looking for signs of disease or other problems. Our goal at our office serving Palm Beach Gardens is always to help maintain your good dental health and to prevent problems from becoming serious by identifying and treating them as soon as possible.

GENTLE CLEANING: General dentistry checkups in Juno Beach will almost always include a gentle complete cleaning, either from Dr. Weinberg or one of our well-trained, friendly dental hygienists. Routine cleanings allow us to check the condition of your teeth and gums and your dental health. Using special instruments, a dental hygienist will scrape below the gumline, removing built-up plaque and tartar that can cause gum disease, cavities, bad breath and other dental health problems in Palm Beach Gardens & Jupiter. Your dentist or hygienist may also polish and floss your teeth.

DEEP SCALING AND ROOT PLANNING: If we identify any unhealthy condition of your gums (periodontal disease), we evaluate your gums and recommend a course of treatment. This may include deep scaling and root planing, which are procedures intended to remove plaque and bacteria from under your gums. Deep Scaling removes the unhealthy deposits from your teeth and Root Planing smoothes the surfaces to allow gums to heal properly around your teeth.

DENTAL SEALANTS: Sealants are a fine general dentistry practice for patients in the Jupiter & Palm Beach Gardens area. They are protective, composite “seals” that are usually placed on the chewing (occlusal) surface of a child’s permanent back teeth – the molars and premolars – to help protect them from decay and prevent cavities. Children are more susceptible to cavities due to their tendency to forget to brush regularly. As general and restorative dentistry experts, our Jupiter dentist suggests that you consider sealants for them. We will review your child’s dental health and eating habits to determine if sealants are an appropriate treatment.

What is an Oral Cancer Screening?

General Dentistry in Juno Beach is Great for All AgesWe perform a dental technology treatment called oral cancer screening in Juno Beach. Oral cancer is a form of cancer that occurs on the lips, inside the mouth, on the back of the throat, the tonsils or salivary glands. Because oral cancer occurs more frequently in men than women, and most likely to strike people over 40, we believe oral cancer screening to be part of our practice. Smoking in combination with heavy alcohol usage is a key risk factor that we will discuss with you before or after your oral cancer screening. If not detected early, oral cancer can require surgery, radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy. It can also be fatal. Part of the reason for a poor prognosis is a failure to recognize the early symptoms, so an oral cancer screening to detect problems early is the key to successful treatment.

We are proud to use the Visilite™ oral cancer screening system near Jupiter & Palm Beach Gardens, which is an FDA approved Oral Lesion Identification and Marking System, that allows us to identify oral abnormalities that increase the risk for oral cancer. You won’t always be able to spot the earliest warning signs of oral cancer, which is why regular check-ups with both your dentist near Jupiter and physician are so important. Your dentist is trained to detect early warning signs of oral cancer. The oral cancer screening allows your dental hygienist to note any abnormalities, especially in the mouth and around the jaw and neck.

Whether you need cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, sedation dentistry, general dentistry or preventative care, Dr. Weinberg and his team in Juno Beach welcome the Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter opportunities to customize the dental needs for you and your family members. We thank you for your trust in us and we look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve what you have always wanted, a beautiful healthy smile.
