Thorough Oral Exams

At Paradise Gentle Dentistry we know not only is your smile one of the first things people notice but it also plays an important part in maintaining a healthy body. Not only is good nutrition easier with a good set of “chompers” but the infections and bacteria in the mouth can affect our whole system.

During your exam with the dentist he will evaluate not only the condition of your teeth and restorations (fillings, crowns, etc..) but also do a

TMJ evaluation

Occlusal (bite) analysis

Evaluation and oral cancer screen of the soft tissues of the lips, gums, cheeks, roof of the mouth, floor of the mouth, under the tongue, and sides of the tongue.

Periodontal (gum) evaluation.

If we find areas needing attention utilization of digital x-rays and an intraoral camera will enable you to see what we can see.

Dr. Parrott also does a Velscope Cancer screen, which aids in the early detection of oral cancer. Dr. Parrott was the first dentist in Butte County to own a Velscope, and has saved several patient’s lives, by detecting oral cancer in the  early stages by using the Velscope.
