The Top 7 Risk Factors for Oral Cancer

"You know your dentist is looking for cavities during regular check-ups, but you may not realize your dentist can check for cancer at the same time. It’s estimated that approximately 51,540 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer and cancers of the throat, tonsils and back of the tongue in 2018.

Regular visits to your dentist can help you detect such cancers early, and changing a few potentially harmful habits may help reduce your chances of developing them. Read on to find out the top risk factors."

Looking Your Best In the New Season: Is Whitening Your Teeth Safe?

Good morning!

With spring officially here you, like many others, might feel renewed with energy to freshen up your look or work toward a new goal. Part of that fresh start means you might be considering whitening your teeth. But what about teeth whitening? Is it safe? Well the answer is yes, but it depends! With so many teeth whitening options out there, it can be a bit confusing to navigate the best choice for your smile. According to the American Dental Association "The ADA recommends that if you choose to use a bleaching product, you should only do so after consultation with a dentist. This is especially important for patients with many fillings, crowns, and extremely dark stains. A thorough oral examination, performed by a licensed dentist, is essential to determine if bleaching is an appropriate course of treatment. The dentist and patient together can determine the most appropriate treatment. The dentist may then advise the patient and supervise the use of bleaching agents within the context of a comprehensive, appropriately sequenced treatment plan."

We offer professional whitening services here at Germantown Dental Care and would be more than happy to talk to you about your teeth and whitening options. Schedule your appointment today at: http://germantowndentalcare.com/
