Comprehensive Dentistry

Comprehensive dentistry involves the diagnosis and treatment of general conditions affecting the teeth, gums and jaw. Quality preventive care is a fundamental part of comprehensive dentistry, because it allows Dr. Curling to detect problems early and create more conservative treatment plans. Keeping up with your oral health is vital to your overall health, and it can significantly reduce the amount of money that you will need to spend on dental treatment later in life.

If you have avoided seeing a dentist for a long time because of dental anxiety, please share your concerns with us so we can work out a solution together. We will adjust our care to meet your needs, and we also offer oral conscious sedation to help you relax. We want to make it easy for you to receive the treatment you desire at a pace that makes you feel comfortable.

Periodontal Health (Gum Health)

Periodontal Health

According to MedlinePlus, a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health, about 80 percent of U.S. adults currently have some form of gum disease, ranging from gingivitis to serious periodontal disease. The prevalence of gum disease increases with age as teeth wear down, gums naturally recede and medications affect oral changes. If your gums feel tender or look red and swollen, you may be at risk for gum disease. Other signs are bleeding and/or receding gums, sensitive teeth and persistent bad breath. Left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss and more serious health problems, including heart attack and stroke. Call today to schedule an exam with Dr. Curling. A healthy mouth needs healthy gums!

Treatment for Gum Disease

Gum disease used to require oral surgery more often than not. While surgery is still sometimes the best option, many cases can now be treated with less invasive techniques first, such as deep cleanings, local antibiotics and medicated rinses.

Oral Cancer Is Nothing to Smile About

Oral cancer is one of the most curable types of cancer if it’s caught early enough. We perform routine oral cancer screenings to detect lesions before they produce any pain or symptoms. Digital x-rays also aid in the detection of oral cancer by enabling Dr. Curling to see possible tumors and other problems associated with the jaw.
