Keep Up Your Dental Care with Alan J. Wickenhauser, DDS
General dentistry services are crucial to maintaining a healthy mouth and avoiding substantial damage to it due to decay, infection, and other detrimental issues. Alan J. Wickenhauser, DDS makes sure every patient gets the comprehensive general services for their best smile. Our dental services include:
Biannual Cleanings (ADA-recommended)
During your cleaning, we’ll remove any plaque and tartar built up on your teeth, as well as floss between them. You’ll also get your teeth polished for a smooth, clean finish.
These X-rays offer a high-definition image of your oral cavity without the bitewings and other discomforts of conventional X-rays. They also emit significantly less radiation, making them safer for patients at any age.
Our dental specialists will examine your mouth for any signs of decay, infection in the teeth or gums, and the state of restorations such as fillings, crowns, and bridges.
Periodontal Gum Therapy (Support Oral Systemic Health)
The health of your gums is linked to the health of other parts of your body such as your heart. Periodontal disease can also lead to tooth, bone, and tissue loss. We provide effective treatment for gum disease to resolve the irritation and infection. Learn more about gum care.
Oral Cancer Screenings
During your examination, we’ll check your gums, lips, tongue, and other tissue for any signs of oral cancer. By detecting it early, you have the best chance of resolving it quickly, before it develops into a more severe problem that costs you money and tissue, including teeth, gums, and bone.
