Bloomingdale Family Dental Cleanings and Examinations
We advise that all kids and adults throughout Bloomingdale IL have teeth cleanings twice a year. Regardless of how old you are, good oral health is essential. As we age, the risk of an oral infection increases. Factors that contribute to this is due to aging teeth and wearing away of the protective enamel. Both of these reasons can make it easier for cavities to form. The best way to fight this is by caring for your teeth daily, brushing and flossing in addition to visiting the dentist regularly. We make it easier than ever to get your teeth cleanings. We offer flexible appointment times so you can schedule around your family or work schedule.

An Oral Cancer Screening is included in every dental examination. This form of cancer is deadly and strangely silent in our society. According to the Oral Cancer Foundation,
“Close to 49,750 Americans will be diagnosed with [oral cancer] this year…[causing] over 9,750 deaths, killing roughly 1 person per hour.”
The five-year mortality rate of Oral Cancer is high than, cervical cancer and prostate cancer, and kills one person every hour of every day.
Oral Cancer frequently has no symptoms; however, when symptoms do occur, the most common include:
