Routine Dental Cleanings in North Carolina
Book Your Next Dental Cleaning with CarolinasDentist
It may surprise you to learn that it only takes 24 hours for plaque that has not been removed from your teeth to turn into calculus (tartar). Although that is not what anyone wants to hear, those daily home cleanings do help control plaque and tartar formation, but those hard-to-reach areas will always need special attention. At CarolinasDentist, our well-trained team is here to help you keep that bright beautiful smile!
Once your initial periodontal treatment is complete, your dentist and hygienist will recommend regular maintenance cleanings (periodontal cleanings), usually four times a year. During these cleaning visits, the pocket depths will be carefully checked to ensure that they are healthy. Plaque and calculus that are difficult for you to remove daily will be removed from above and below the gum line.
The Benefits of Routine Cleaning
We’ll meet with you to craft your best, personalized preventive oral health program. This step saves you time, stress and money by utilizing preventive maintenance care to keep problems from occurring or to stop them in their tracks altogether. Our variety of oral hygiene services will keep your teeth and gums healthy and limit your risk of future problems.
Our Best Dental Exams & Cleanings
It’s said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This is truly the case when it comes to your oral health. Even if you don’t have any pressing dental concerns, you should still visit our dental team for a professional teeth cleaning and exam every six months so we can make sure everything is in tip-top shape. That way we can deal with problems (like cavities and gum disease) while they’re still small.
During these dental clinic visits, we evaluate your overall oral health; take X-rays to detect issues; remove stains, plaque, and tartar; polish your teeth; and provide an oral cancer screening. We use an ultrasonic scaler that sprays away debris from teeth, which is a big improvement upon the uncomfortable scraping of traditional tools. We are also happy to give you pointers for at-home oral care.
Our Fluoride Treatment Works for You
Fluoride is the most effective agent in preventing tooth decay. It is a natural mineral that strengthens teeth against acid and decay, and you’re probably most familiar with it via toothpaste. But it’s also present in most cities’ water supplies. Some people at a high-risk for cavities, or who have a fluoride deficiency, may require a bit more to help maintain a healthy smile. If your teeth need a boost in protection, we can topically apply fluoride to them in a simple, quick procedure.
Don’t Overlook Tooth Decay Prevention
Tooth decay is something many people don’t realize they have until their dentist breaks the bad news or a painful infection occurs. When decay is left untreated, it can result in a toothache, gum swelling, bad breath, and even tooth discoloration.
To better fight tooth decay, you should keep up with your regular dental office visits and practice good oral hygiene at home. At CarolinasDentist, we use the state-of-the-art CariFree device to detect cavities as early as possible. If you’re diagnosed with tooth decay, we can determine the best treatment for you. Otherwise, our dentists can discuss best practices for tooth decay prevention.
