Periodontal Health


While at our Bemidji dental office, we make sure that you receive the highest level of service and ensure that our dental work is of the highest quality. To help you maintain great oral health between visits, we suggest establishing a proper personal oral hygiene routine, including proper care for your teeth and gums. If you have any questions about your current hygiene plan, please ask us.

Oral cancer screenings

Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of any visit to your local Bemidji dentist! We are now able to pinpoint the start of a potential problem much earlier in its evolution using new technology. These procedures help us identify and treat oral cancers before they become major, irreversible conditions. Our exams use devices that allow us to view issues that cannot always be detected with the naked eye.

Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on tissue health and your overall oral health. If you are a smoker or heavy drinker, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit our Bemidji dental office.

Root Planing

Plaque and tartar often accumulates below the gum line. In this situation, we will clean and smooth the affected area to ensure that the area is completely spotless. If this space is not kept clean, the entire area can become irritated by bacteria. It is very important to have a dentist check this area if you experience bleeding during brushing.
