Regular Dental Checkups
We offer comprehensive cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry services for children and adults. We enjoy serving patients who live in the Grand Island area and beyond! Your dental wellbeing is very important, and to keep your teeth and gums healthy you should make appointment with Dr. Steven Stec at least twice a year. Not only will our friendly professionals check your mouth for common dental problems, but we also screen for oral cancer and TMJ disorders.
Gum disease affects more than 80% of the American population, so we’re always very careful to check your gums for signs of infection. If we do notice that pockets are forming around your teeth or see that your gums look swollen and discolored, we’ll recommend gum disease therapy. Treating gum disease is important not only important to your continued good oral health, it also contributes to your overall health, too. Gum disease has been linked to heart attacks, strokes, and rheumatoid arthritis. We will usually schedule you for a teeth cleaning at a separate appointment with our dental hygienists.
Oral Cancer Screening
At the Grand Island dental practice of Dr. Steven Stec, we perform oral cancer screenings as a part of your six-month regular exam. Nearly 40,000 Americans are diagnosed with oral or pharyngeal cancer this year. Sadly, more than half of those patients die within five years. The high number of fatalities is due to the late discovery of oral cancer—when it’s much more difficult to treat. The most common signs of oral cancer are:
- Red or white spots
- Sores that do not heal
- Lumps or rough spots
- Pain or numbness in the mouth or on the lips
- Difficulty swallowing or speaking
- Problems moving the jaw or tongue
