No two people on the planet that have teeth that are exactly alike–but when it comes to having a healthy mouth, certain practices are required of everyone that wants strong, sound teeth. Consistent, thorough daily oral hygiene routines are the most basic–and most essential–building block to favorable oral health. You may have heard the saying, “You only have to take care of the teeth you want to keep”, and Dr. Gutierrez and the Royal Dental team agree. We can also help you treat gum disease, prevent cavities, screen for oral cancer, and protect your teeth with a custom-fit mouthguard.
Fighting tooth decay and gum disease start with good oral hygiene practices, but regular checkups and professional cleanings with us fortify your efforts, allowing us to identify and help prevent larger issues before they begin.
Oral cancer is one of the most difficult cancers to diagnose in its early stages, and it is estimated that less than 20% of U.S. dentists routinely screen for the disease. As a result, oral cancer rates continue to rise rapidly. Alcohol and tobacco use are two of the most common oral cancer risk factors, but current research indicates that HPV (human papillomavirus) has become the leading risk factor for oral cancer.
Dr. Gutierrez and Royal Dental Care include oral cancer screening as part of each and every routine adult checkup. Above all else, we want you well—and if oral cancer should make an unwelcome appearance, we want you to have the maximum amount of time for treatment—and the best chance at the most favorable outcome possible. Let’s fight together for your good health!
