This post from The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte is for smiles that are overdue for a dental checkup and cleaning.
During dental deep cleanings, our hygienists thoroughly remove the plaque and tartar above and below the gumline. By scaling and planing, they remove areas where bacteria can easily multiply.
After your teeth have been cleaned, our dentist performs a thorough examination. They check for overall tooth and gum health, the presence of cavities, gum pocket depth, bite issues, and signs of oral cancer.
Some individuals mistakenly believe that they can skip dental visits if they don’t notice anything out of the ordinary. This attitude is risky. Many dental troubles advance silently. When the patient experiences pain, much damage has been done. Gum disease, especially, often progresses unnoticed.
The best way to keep your smile clean, cavity-free and beautiful is to see us at The Steele Creek Dentist twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. We provide a full range of general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next appointment today.
