There are health issues which modern dental technologies can now provide advanced diagnostic treatment in order to identify such problems long before they might become become serious health concerns--and even life-threatening conditions. Start with Oral Cancer. With an advanced technology called VELscope, patient care has been elevated to new heights with this potentially life saving device able to detect cancerous, and pre-cancerous tissue in real time. This is a huge breakthrough and here is what San Clemente/Laguna Niguel dentist Dr. Eric Johnson's has to say:
"The VELscope device provides a simple procedure that takes a couple of minutes and involves nothing more than examining your oral tissue with a special wand that "fluoresces"
VELscope is clearly a technology every dental patients needs to take advantage of.
Then there is the dreaded TMJ. There has been some mystery surrounding TMJ in years past, but technology has caught up and now offers a process called T-Scan. It is a sophisticated method of detecting dental and jaw issues that contribute to TMJ--often well before the symptoms might occur. Here is what Dr. Johnson has to say about the T-Scan benefits:
"T-Scan enhances patient education, it reduces costly repeat visits and remakes, all while enabling a more confident, proactive approach to patient care. The exact set of criteria we routinely aim for in everything we do as a top San Clemente/Laguna Niguel Cosmetic Dental Practice."
Another overlooked aspect to good health is gum health. Dental health professionals are in agreement that gum health plays a key factor in overall dental health and that healthy gums equal healthy teeth. So it's critically important that attention be paid to the gums to keep one step ahead of anything that could result in gum disease. Dr. Johnson regarding this topic:
"Having healthy gums is important if you want to have a beautiful smile and a healthy mouth. The medical community now recognizes that gum disease threatens more than just the life of your teeth, it may actually threaten your very life. Mounting scientific research has uncovered links between gum disease and these life-threatening conditions: oral cancer, heart disease, diabetes, respiratory ailments and pre-term, low-birth weight babies."
With all the pitfalls ready to wreak havoc within your mouth it makes sense to seek out a local dental professional who can provide the most comprehensive dental care cosmetically, holistically and altruistically. That dentist is Dr. Eric Johnson for folks in the San Clemente/Laguna Niguel area.
Along with skill, care and a true concern for patient satisfaction, a skilled, conscientious cosmetic dentist can be something to help you achieve and maintain optimum overall health.
