Our office is a full service, general dentistry practice offering routine checkups and cleanings along with dental emergency care, restorations, and cosmetic treatments. For health conscious patients who prefer holistic approaches to medical and dental treatment, Dr. Golab provides holistic dental services with a focus on oral systemic health, early detection, prevention, mercury-free dentistry, and biocompatible restorations.
DENTAL CHECKUPS AND CLEANINGS
Without receiving regular checkups and cleanings, a person’s oral health can quickly fall into disarray. There are many conditions where diagnostics and the trained eye of a dentist are necessary to begin the process of detecting potential health issues. Beyond looking for signs of common conditions like periodontal (gum) disease and tooth decay, checkups include thorough inspections of the neck and oral cavity. One important part of a checkup is an oral cancer screening. An oral cancer screening can literally save your life since oral cancer can be fatal as it advances.
Like checkups, the need for cleanings shouldn’t be ignored. Cleanings remove substances that we cannot brush or floss away at home. Having a dental cleaning every six months can greatly reduce your risk of developing gum disease, too. A professional cleaning is not invasive or uncomfortable. In fact, many people are happy with the results of their cleanings because their mouths feel impeccably clean.
ORAL SYSTEMIC HEALTH/HOLISTIC SERVICES
The notion that the health of the body and mouth are connected is not new; however, a wealth of research has been devoted to examining the links between chronic health conditions and oral health issues. Our practice strives to improve our patients’ oral health and wellbeing by taking their overall health into account.
For those interested in holistic dental services, we recommend calling our office to learn more about our treatment philosophy and services. Holistic dentistry centers on treating dental conditions with natural compounds and materials. For instance, our team can safely remove amalgam (metal) fillings with a system that traps vapors and particles released during the removal of old dental work.
Dental emergencies can throw a wrench into your daily life by producing significant discomfort and decreasing your oral function. When our guests need emergency care, our mission is to increase their comfort and oral function so that restorations and other treatments (if necessary) can be scheduled. Common dental emergencies include knocked out/broken teeth, toothaches, abscesses, and failing restorations.
If you are bleeding excessively or have sustained severe injuries, visit your nearest emergency room for treatment. When calling to make an emergency appointment, be sure to leave us your contact information and details about the nature of your injury so that we can prepare for your visit.
