A good dentist needs to be able to do more than just clean your teeth and fill your cavities. This is why Overlake Dental’s Bellevue dentist is prepared to serve you with a selection of other services designed to assure our patients the best possible oral health.
VELscope Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer, though a relatively uncommon form of cancer, has an unfortunately high death rate. Fortunately, if it is discovered in its early stages, the patient’s chances of survival are very good. This is why Dr. Yu offers VELscope Oral Cancer Screening at his practice to perform a much more thorough assessment of your mouth and oral health as part of your regular dental visit.
The VELscope exam helps us identify normal and abnormal tissues by visualizing any abnormalities in the mucosal tissues of the lips, mouth, and upper throat within a few minutes. Call us at 425-453-9999 to learn more about the VELscope Oral Cancer Screening process.
Taking good care of your gums is essential for your oral health, possibly even more important that maintaining clean, strong teeth. After all, it is much easier for us to rebuild teeth than it is to repair gum tissues lost to gingivitis. With this in mind, many patients can benefit from the powerful cleaning effects of our Perio Protect treatment. This solution works by applying strong anti-bacterial materials to the pockets of your gums with a specially-fitted tray.
Most patients only need to wear their tray for a few minutes each day and find the process to be relatively comfortable. The end result is much stronger and healthier gums that are more resilient to tooth decay and other oral health problems. Think you might be a good candidate for Perio Protect?
