Dental Hygiene visits are when patients come to the dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings. These should be done about every 6-months for optimal oral health. During your visit you’ll meet with Dr. Krusich’s dental hygienists, either Tricia or Erin. They’ll review your medical & dental history, clean your teeth, and look for any abnormalities.
Oral cancer can form on the tongue, floor or roof of the mouth, along the gums, soft palate, throat, or on the inside of the cheeks. It may appear as a small lesion, a small bump, or an ulcer. An oral cancer screening involves a visual and tactile inspection and may require a biopsy being sent to a lab for confirmation.
Dental Sealants are a tooth colored material that fills in the uneven surfaces of a tooth and helps prevents cavities. Because a tooth’s surface naturally contains grooves and small pits, it can be difficult for brushing alone to remove food, bacteria, and plaque. This build-up can lead to cavities. Sealants provide a smoother, shallower surface so brushing is more effective and they provide a barrier between the cavity causing agents and the tooth.
A dental emergency is any condition that you, our patients, are concerned about. While these generally involve chipped or damaged teeth, they can also involve unusual pain or an abscess. All of these are serious medical conditions and Dr. Krusich would like you to call our Overland Park office immediately at 913-383-2600 for your dental emergency.
