Preventative Care


Regular oral cancer screenings are the keys to early detection and treatment for a condition that can have serious, even fatal consequences. With early diagnosis and treatment of oral cancer, studies have indicated the chances of survival to be approximately 80 to 90 percent. Dr. Ringwald can perform these quick and painless oral cancer screenings as part of your regular oral exam here at our practice. It’s very important to remember that early warning signs of oral cancer may not be noticeable to you in the early stages, which makes it even more critical to have these routine screenings.


While you may brush and floss every day, your hygiene routine may not be effective enough to combat plaque and potentially dangerous bacteria. We recommend a minimum of at least two dental cleanings per year to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums. Routine cleanings are often paired with your routine oral exam in our office. Teeth cleaning can remove bacteria, plaque buildup and stains; reducing the potential for developing gum disease, cavities, and other problems.We recommend a minimum of atleast two dental cleanings per year to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums.


Dr. Ringwald offers advanced periodontal (gum care) options to treat gum disease and successfully renew the health of your gums. Gum disease affects millions of Americans, many of whom may not even be aware they have it. Untreated gum infections can lead to gum and bone recession, bleeding gums, tooth movement, tooth loss, and even risks to your overall health.
In addition to gum disease treatment, Dr. Ringwald offers periodontal procedures such as non-surgical “gummy smile” rejuvenation, which uses laser techniques to remove excess gum tissue which creates better symmetry and balance between the gums and teeth.

Digital X-Rays

X-rays are crucial when it comes to planning dental care and fully understanding a patient’s treatment needs. However, the traditional method for capturing them came with several pitfalls – the images took time to develop in a darkroom, they relied on the use of hazardous chemicals, and they forced patients to be exposed to a significant dose of radiation. Thankfully, digital technology has transformed this process, making it simpler and safer than ever before. Using the most advanced technology our team can take detailed images of your smile and transfer them to our computer in a matter of seconds – no development, chemicals, or tedious waiting required. Best of all, the amount of radiation involved is reduced by up to 90%.
