Avoiding Cavities With Early Detection

Dental caries are regular issues frequently detected by dentists throughout the United States. Prone to form in the smiles of young children as well as adults, they can arise as the result of poor oral hygiene, consuming too much sugar and starch, and because of genetics.

Discover the types of dental services we offer to minimize the potential for restorative care in the future and call us to schedule an appointment.

Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

Basic dental exams every six months are necessary to avoid the formation of cavities, infection, gum disease, oral cancer, and more. When meeting with Dr. J and the team at HJ Dental, you can expect a thorough evaluation of your smile as well as a professional cleaning to remove built-up plaque and tartar. By checking for dental disease of any kind, we can immediately address the problem(s) early on and avoid timelier and costlier treatments in the future.



Fluoride Treatments

Although commonly found in tap water, fruits, vegetables, and toothpaste, you may not be receiving enough of this natural mineral to fully protect your teeth. At HJ Dental, our team is pleased to offer fluoride treatments to not only reduce the potential for cavities but also strengthen tooth enamel. Within minutes, the fluoride is applied, and the process is completely painless. Simply wait half an hour afterward to ensure the solution sets properly before eating or drinking.


Oral Cancer Screenings

It is estimated more than 55,000 people are diagnosed with oral cancer each year. Early detection is key to beating this disease but unfortunately, many do not notice the symptoms until it is too late. This is why regular dental visits are necessary because Dr. J can perform a visual examination and use intraoral images to identify any abnormalities or areas of uncertainty. Should a lump or particular area of the gums or soft tissues raise an alarm, we will refer you to a specialist for further testing.
