The temporomandibular joint, commonly referred to as TMJ, is one of the body’s most complex joints. Here, our Brantford dentists explain three main types of TMJ disorders, symptoms and how they are treated.
A Preventive Approach
Oral cancer screenings are an important tool for early oral cancer diagnosis. At Cornerstone Dentistry, we provide oral cancer screening for patients during all new patient exams and dental check up appointments.
What happens at an Oral Cancer Screening?
This oral cancer scan will involve a thorough examination of your mouth. Your dental hygienist will also check your head and neck for any other abnormalities.
Inside your mouth, your hygienist will check for anything unusual including swelling, ulcers, changes in textures and colours, swollen glands and indentations.
