Gentle Cleanings and Exams
Cleanings and exams by a dentist are essential to a good oral hygiene routine. These cleanings and exams, which should be performed at least once every six months, help us to ensure that you are healthy and free from periodontal disease, oral cancer, and tooth decay. Call our office in Ephrata today to schedule your gentle cleaning and exam so that you can return to optimal oral health soon!
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer is a serious condition that poses a significant risk to your overall health. Dr. Jacobsen will perform an oral cancer screening, visually examining as well as feeling the mouth, neck, and surrounding areas, at every six-month appointment in order to catch oral cancer earlier, when it is most easily treated. If it has been over six months since your last check-up, call us today to schedule your appointment and take the first step to optimal oral health.
At the office of Dr. Jacobsen in Ephrata, we understand that establishing the importance of good oral health in the youth can encourage a lifetime of healthy smiles. We provide a variety of pediatric dentistry services to help your children have healthy teeth and gums and beautiful smiles. If you are looking for a kind and caring dental team for your children, call us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jacobsen!
Periodontal Disease Evaluation and Treatment
Periodontal (gum) disease is a degenerative disease that can cause tooth loss, bone loss, and gum loss when left untreated. At every regular cleaning and exam, we provide a periodontal disease evaluation to ensure that you are in good oral health. If periodontal disease is present, we will provide deep cleanings and other treatments if necessary to stop the disease and get you back to optimal oral health. Please contact our office as soon as possible if you notice red, swollen, or bleeding gums as these are some of the signs of gum disease.
