Oral Cancer Screening

In recent years, the risk of oral cancer has been on the rise. The good news is dentists like Dr. Moulton are equipped to catch oral cancer when it’s still in the earliest stages of development. The sooner we catch it, the easier it is to treat. During your dental, we’ll be on the lookout for the signs of oral cancer, which include mouth sores that don’t heal after about two weeks, red or white patches in the gum tissue, and lumps or bumps in the gums, tongue, neck, and other oral structures.

Nightguards for Bruxism

For many, teeth grinding and clenching might be a subtle habit that comes and goes, meaning you likely don’t think about it very often. However, these habits can easily transform into a condition that puts your tooth enamel, gum tissue, and overall oral health at risk. Bruxism is a more common condition than you would think. Plus, it can develop in people of any age, including children. If you’re waking up with jaw pain or soreness, it may be time to start thinking about getting a nightguard from Dr. Moulton’s dental office.
