Whitmore Dental is a mercury-free dental practice with a focus on what is best for each individual patient. Dental hygiene care varies from person to person, and we look at each of our patients’ health needs separately. During your dental check up, we look for signs of gum disease and oral cancer, and anything else that could develop into something more serious down the road.
Screening for oral cancer is part of your regular check up at Whitmore Dental. All members of our clinical care team are expertly trained to recognize the signs of oral cancer, and will address any concerns and questions you may have about this issue. While the best way to avoid oral cancer is to minimize risks, if you are worried about possible symptoms between your bi-annual dental visits, you may schedule an appointment for an examination.
Knowing how to brush and floss regularly and effectively is important, but having your teeth professionally cleaned and your mouth and jaw examined by Dr. Whitmore is just as vital. He and the expert dental team can give you advice and pointers about how to maximize your at-home routine.
