Comprehensive Oral Health Care
At the offices of Clint Newman, D.D.S., our team offers a full range of family dentistry services. The foundation of oral health starts with at-home dental care. Our team can help educate you and your family on proper brushing and flossing techniques, and help explain the importance of dental hygiene to your children. Dr. Newman can also recommend hygienic products that are appropriate for your unique needs.
Dental fillings are a staple of dentistry. Dr. Newman prefers to use tooth-colored fillings to restore decayed, worn, or otherwise damaged teeth. The composite material is matched to your natural tooth color, so fillings blend seamlessly within your teeth. After the tooth is prepped, the filling will be placed and shaped to fit the void precisely. Dental fillings are a reliable and durable option for general dentistry that can be placed in just one dental visit.
Oral Cancer Exams
We perform regular oral cancer screenings as part of our comprehensive general dentistry services. These annual screenings are painless, quick procedures that involve a simple examination of your teeth and gums. After you have rinsed your mouth with a special cleansing solution, Dr. Newman uses a VELscope® to detect any signs of cancer. When detected in its earliest stages, oral cancer is one of the most treatable types of cancer.
We utilize VELscope®, an important FDA-approved tool that detects abnormalities in the oral tissues that may lead to cancer. During VELscope® examination, Dr. Newman shines a handheld extension of this tool into your mouth, which highlights the contrast between normal and abnormal cells in your gums. We are proud to use technology like the VELscope® to help our patients achieve and maintain excellent oral health.
