We know our own mouths pretty well. That’s why when you notice a new bump, or a sore spot, it’s hard to leave it alone. Unless you are a bit of an acrobat, however, it can be hard to get a good view of exactly what’s going on. Some things are fairly simple. You may have a temporary canker sore, or if you have a history of fever blisters, you might know what to do. However, our dental team in Austin, MN wants to know about changes in any family member’s mouth.
We Have Technology To Check Things Out
When you come in for an examination, whether it is a scheduled checkup, or an appointment to address a particular issue, we can put our dental technology to work. For older teens and young adults, we keep an eye on wisdom teeth. If they are coming in at an awkward position, or if they are impacted behind other teeth, then a scheduled extraction can solve the problem, and restore comfort and symmetry to your smile.
We Have a Better View
Not only do our trusted practice dentists Dr. Mitchell and Dr. Potach have a bird’s eye view, with ample light and a good sight angle to examine your mouth, we can also employ intraoral cameras, special mirrors and other aids to assess the situation. It maybe that a filling has partially dislodged, or a tooth has chipped and needs to be repaired. Depending on the cause and the treatment, we can take digital photos or X-rays to share with insurance companies, if that is needed.
We have Experience in Diagnosing Oral Situations
Any growth can be scary, and we want to see that you are quickly diagnosed, to alleviate anxiety and so that you can get any treatment that is needed. A growth may be a harmless, slow-growing tori that has only recent drawn your attention, or it can be an early sign of oral cancer, which needs immediate further attention.
