Oral Cancer Screenings
As part of your regular dental check-up, our caring dentist will use today’s technology to screen for oral cancer. This preventive exam allows us to identify any early signs of cancer that could lead to more serious concerns. Early diagnosis is the key to beating oral cancer!
Dr. Minnoch and Dr. Ip will explain what to look out for and any symptoms relating to oral cancer, e.g. unexplained bleeding, swelling, numbness, etc. We’ll keep you informed!
Gone are the days of dark, metal fillings that could be damaging to your health. Our modern day composite fillings match the color of your teeth while being strong, durable, and completely safe. They are now the preferred method for repairing damaged or diseased teeth.
At Bellevue Dental Care and Implant Center, we can replace your metal amalgam fillings with brand new, natural-looking composite fillings. We want all our patients to benefit from a natural-looking, metal-free smile.
As part of our commitment to patient convenience, we strive to offer all the treatments you need in one place. With this in mind, Dr. Minnoch is proud to offer root canal therapy or endodontics at our Bellevue office.
Root canal therapy treats the inside of your tooth (or pulp) when it becomes infected. Our fully trained dentists painlessly remove the infected pulp, clean the area, and strengthen your natural tooth with a crown. This conservative procedure will restore your tooth back to health.
If you have lost a tooth or multiple teeth, a dental bridge is a fast, effective method for restoring your smile. Bridges give you natural-looking and fully functional teeth, improving your bite, chewing ability, and speech.
Bridges consist of an artificial tooth or teeth supported by the two neighboring teeth. The anchor teeth are topped with crowns and then the bridge is anchored in place. This treatment fully restores your smile and oral health.
When playing sports, it is vital to protect your teeth using a custom-made mouthguard. In fact, the American Dental Association recommends using mouthguards for ALL sports. These guards protect your teeth, jaw, lips, tongue, and face from damaging impact.
Using jaw-positioning technology, Dr. Minnoch can offer mouthguards that improve performance by maximizing air intake and improving reaction time. This then reduces energy-sapping lactic acid, increasing endurance. So you can be stronger, faster, and better while maintaining your winning smile.
‘‘I love this group. They appreciate the fact that we have busy lives and they strive to accommodate one appointment for my whole family. We have back-to-back appointments and they NEVER keep us waiting. They are friendly and happy to explain everything that is going on. ’’
