If it has been some time since you have seen a Pasadena Dentist it could be time to schedule a check up with Dr. Paul Shinto and his team of highly qualified Dentists in Pasadena.

When you make an appointment with the best Dentist in Pasadena, you can be assured of a thorough examination that includes charting, a visual examination, and periodontal probing. Your Pasadena Dentist will also give you a diagnosis and offer treatment recommendations based on your initial examination. Your Dentist in Pasadena will also take digital dental x-rays that emit about half of the radiation that conventional x-rays do. Unfortunately, some diseases of the gums and teeth can only be seen when your Pasadena Dentist takes digital dental x-rays.

Some of the issues that your Dentist in Pasadena will be looking for on the digital dental x-rays include decay underneath your fillings or decay between your teeth, infections in the bone, gingivitis, and periodontal disease, otherwise known as gum disease. Your Pasadena Dentist will also look for developmental abnormalities, cysts or abscesses and certain types of tumors that your Pasadena Dentist would not see in a dental exam without x-rays.

It is imperative that you see your Dentist in Pasadena on a regular basis, as treating dental problems during the early stages will save you time and money and of course, discomfort. If your Pasadena Dentist discovers a tumor that is hidden underneath your teeth and gums, radiographs could even help to save your life. 

Your Dentist in Pasadena uses the Trimira Idnetifi 3000 Ultra Light when screening for oral cancer. This high tech device allows your Pasadena Dentist to view changes in your mouth tissue before they are visible with the naked eye. Your Dentist in Pasadena will tell you that there is an 80 to 90 percent cure rate if oral cancer is caught early enough.
