Oral Cancer Screening
Our office is not only dedicated to your smile, we’re also dedicated to your overall wellness. We take a holistic approach to your dental care, which includes an oral cancer screening as a part of your regular exam.
Detecting oral cancer in its early stages can dramatically increase your chances for successful treatment. During each dental examination, you will receive a thorough oral cancer screening aimed at identifying areas of concern. Using modern technology, our team can recognize even slight changes in soft tissue cells that indicate the presence of precancerous lesions.
mouthguards/ sports guards
How great it is when kids become interested in playing sports? They get to meet new friends as well as improve their interpersonal and motor skills. However, when your child wears braces or participates in any kind of full-contact sports such as basketball, football, and even martial arts, it is recommended for them to use mouth guards. This way,we can protect their orthodontic treatment and prevent any tooth injury that may be caused by an untoward incident. Cliche as it may be, but prevention is better than cure. So, feel free to consult your Victoria dentist at Moss Dental for your child’s mouthguard options.
Grinding or clenching your teeth is a common problem during sleep. Fortunately, night guards can offer protection against damaging the teeth from consistent grinding. Although night guards won’t prevent the actual clenching or grinding of the teeth, they can go a long way in reducing the wear and tear that can result from it.
For patients who play sports or take part in other physical activities, our dentist in Victoria recommends wearing a mouth guard to prevent injury in the form of tooth trauma. We offer custom-made mouth guards to be worn during these events to help protect the teeth from trauma.
