Oral Cancer Screening

Did you know oral cancer is the third most common case of cancer? Oral cancer may start with a growth or sore in the mouth which does not go away. The cancer may affect the lips, tongue, cheeks, floor of the mouth, hard and soft palate, sinuses, or throat. Some risk factors for oral cancer include: smoking, tobacco usage, heavy drinking, excessive exposure to the sun, and a family history of cancer.

At Cottonwood Dental Group, oral cancer screenings for Highlands Ranch patients are imperative! A regular screening will include looking for any abnormal tissue changes in the neck, head, face, or oral cavity.

Since the naked eye may not be able to detect any serious issues or irregularities at an early stage, a VELscope test may be performed once a year. A VELscope is a powerful tool which assists in discovering any oral abnormalities. The tool’s blue-spectrum light causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce and highlight any inflammation or bacteria present in the mouth. The VELscope is safe, easy to use, and life saving. “With the VELscope, cancer can be detected before it has time to spread.” –Dr. Parsons.

Drs. DeLapp and Parsons are deeply concerned about your health. Our practice goes above and beyond to ensure your oral health is optimal with regular oral cancer screenings for our Highlands Ranch patients. Call to schedule an appointment and get screened today!

Dental Hygiene

Regular dental exams and professional cleanings aid in attaining superior oral hygiene.

During your exam we take a full set of extraoral and intraoral radiograph photos, address any areas of concern, and discuss your treatment plan. After this a Cari-Free test is used to assess future risks such as gum disease. Finally, your professional cleaning is conducted.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea occurs when the tissues of the throat obstruct your airway during sleep. This blockage prevents oxygen from getting to the brain, and can disrupt healthy sleep patterns.

Drs. DeLapp and Parsons provide comfortable and easy-to-use sleep analysis equipment to be used in the comfort of your own home. Then we will create a treatment plan using our small, customized oral appliance to help you get a sound night’s sleep.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Did you know oral cancer is the third most common case of cancer? Oral cancer may start with a growth or sore in the mouth, which does not go away.

We conduct regular screenings using a life saving, safe, and powerful tool called VELscope, which assists in discovering any oral abnormalities. The tool’s blue-spectrum light causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce and highlight any inflammation or bacteria present in the mouth. It helps us detect oral cancer before it spreads.

Put a stop to worn-down teeth, jaw soreness and headaches caused by nighttime clenching and grinding!

Our customized two appointments mouthguards based on the bite and mouth of each patient provide a personalized solution. During the first appointment, impressions of the patients’ teeth are taken. A week later, the guard is delivered, along with instructions and a storage case.

We also offer sportsguards for children who participate in sports.
