Cold Sore Treatment

Cold sores are a common nuisance. Although there is no cure for the herpes simplex virus (HSV-1 and HSV-2) that causes them, cold sore breakouts can be managed and avoided. Cold sores, sometimes called fever blisters, appear around the lips and mouth and are often associated with red, swollen and irritated skin around the breakout areas.

Mouth Guards

Custom-fit mouth guards are prescribed and created by a dental professional from thermoplastic material and are based on a detailed mold taken of your mouth and teeth. They can be made for either sports or for nighttime teeth grinding and are created differently depending on the intended use. They're highly personalized, as your dentist can adjust the thickness of the mouth guard, and they're designed to fit perfectly in your mouth with no adjustments needed.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer is usually non-fatal if detected in its early stages. This is why our dentist could recommend you get tested or screened. One of the tools used for oral cancer screening is Velscope, which is a technology that is recognized by the WHO – World Health Organization and is an efficient tool in diagnosing oral cancer. This technology is helps in the identification of abnormal tissue development that commonly results in cancer. Also, it helps in the inspection of abnormal changes in other parts of the mouth such as the tongue.
