The American Dental Association is dedicated to helping consumers preserve the health of their teeth and other oral tissues. This includes brushing your teeth twice each day and flossing at least once to remove food and bacterial deposits from your teeth. They also recommend having a routine dental checkup performed twice each year by a professionally trained dentist like Dr. Steven Oshins.
Each of these important appointments starts with a professional dental cleaning performed by one of the dental hygienists on Dr. Steven Oshins’s team. Once all traces of hardened tartar and other bacterial deposits have been removed from your mouth, Dr. Steven Oshins will examine your mouth for any early signs of a problem.
Dr. Steven Oshins will detect any early signs of cavities and gum disease, as well as oral cancer or pharyngeal cancer. If he finds a potential problem developing, he will recommend the most applicable treatment method or preventative measure. This could include administering a fluoride treatment to bolster the mineral strength of your tooth enamel or applying dental sealants to prevent cavities on your molars and premolars.
If Dr. Steven Oshins finds the early signs of gum disease, he can help you understand your treatment options. This might include a dental root planing or other treatment strategy.
If Dr. Steven Oshins find signs of oral or pharyngeal cancer, he will refer you to an oncologist or other specialist to confirm diagnosis and start the treatment process.
If you live in the Schenectady, New York, area and you are due for your next dental checkup, you should call 518-356-5635 to schedule an appointment at Oshins Of Smiles’s dental offices.
