FAMILY & GENERAL DENTISTRY SERVICES
Our goal at New Image is to help you stabilize your oral health and prevent dental disease or decay before it starts. Preventing dental disease begins at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet and is continued with general dentistry services such as regular cleanings, dental exams, and x-rays (as needed).

Regular Exams and Teeth Cleaning
Oral exams are about more than just cleaning the teeth, although this is an important step. Your dentist will be looking at the overall health of your entire mouth, so they can catch problems that may not be easily visible, like periodontal disease or possible cancer growths.
An abscess occurs when a tooth infection extends all the way into the root of a tooth, which is known as the pulp. The abscessed root area is filled with dead white blood cells, other diseased tissues and bacteria.
We offer the most advanced oral lesion identification system available: Velscope. The unique light enables us to view cancerous and pre-cancerous tissues through the gum tissue before they are visible to the naked-eye.
