Visiting our family dentist in Chicago IL is key to maintaining good oral health. The American Dental Association recommends that as soon as a child’s first tooth erupts, he or she should visit the dentist for an initial checkup. Every six months, kids and adults should come in for a checkup and professional teeth cleaning visit. This six-month visit is important because it helps us to find problems while they are small and before they start to cause serious harm to your oral health.
At our family dentist in Chicago IL, we use state-of-the-art technology such as digital X-rays. This minimizes radiation while giving us a clear image of your jaw structure, the placement of your teeth and how much bone mass you have. We also use high-tech cleaning equipment. These tools help us clean your teeth more thoroughly and in less time.
We understand that dental emergencies happen, and our family dentist takes care of urgent issues on a same-day or next-day basis. When you have an emergency, coming to us helps ensure that your teeth get the best possible care. We handle chipped and cracked teeth, teeth that have been knocked out, cuts and lesions to the mouth and other types of injuries.
Another important reason to visit us is for oral cancer screening. Anyone can get oral cancer, but certain risk factors could put you at greater risk. People who smoke or use smokeless tobacco products and people who consume alcohol to excess have a high risk of developing oral cancer. People who have had radiation to the head or neck also have a higher risk of cancer.
