Maintain Great Dental Health With General Dentistry in West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens
At Weinberg Dentistry outside of Palm Beach Springs, Dr. Weinberg and his friendly, well-trained West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens team are committed to partnering with you to give you the best general dentistry procedures we can, so your dental health is the best it can be.
We offer many valuable general dentistry procedures for your dental health in West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens. Some of our most common procedures are listed below.
As a preventative general dentistry measure, it is important to schedule regular check-ups before any dental health problems arise in Palm Beach Gardens and 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.
General dentistry checkups in West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens 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 and Jupiter. Your dentist or hygienist may also polish and floss your teeth.
Deep Scaling and Root Planing
If we identify any unhealthy condition of your gums or signs of periodontal disease, we will 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.
Sealants are a fine general dentistry practice for patients in the Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens areas. 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?
We perform a dental technology treatment called oral cancer screening in West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens. 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 is most likely to strike people over 40, we believe oral cancer screening to be an important 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 Vizilite™ oral cancer screening system near Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens. This technology 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.
