Dr. Donnell-Randall applies her knowledge of the oral-systemic link to treat the whole patient—not just your mouth. By learning more about your health history, lifestyle, and potential risk factors, we’re able to develop effective treatment plans instead of assigning a generic fix based solely on the physical symptoms. If we dig a little deeper, trust that it’s because we deeply care about your health! Preventing oral infections and disease can strengthen your prevention of the following (abridged) list of conditions that have been linked directly to your oral health:
About 50,000 Americans are impacted by oral cancer each year. Most common in those between 41-60 years old, oral cancer affects more men than women. Early signs resemble cold sore or gum disease symptoms, so keeping hygiene appointments with Dr. Donnell-Randall twice a year is key. Oral cancer screening is an important component of every regular checkup at The Dental Loft. Think you don’t need to worry? Keep in mind that over 25% of oral cancer cases occur in people who never smoked!
No one wants to have a tooth pulled—and believe us when we say Dr. Donnell-Randall would like to help you prevent the causes that require it. Unfortunately, there are times when extraction just can’t be avoided. Maybe space left by an absent tooth would reduce overcrowding, or maybe there is no room for wisdom teeth to settle in with the rest of the molars. Whatever the reason, The Dental Loft can take care of your tooth extraction needs!
A custom mouthguard is the most effective way to protect your smile, or the smiles of your loved ones when they play contact sports. Non-prescription mouthguards are not durable and tend to be uncomfortable, so the likelihood of consistent wear is low. People playing sports are 60 times more likely to suffer oral injury than those who are not. Millions of teeth per year are knocked out during athletics. If you think a mouthguard is costly, remember tooth replacement is far more expensive!
