Taking good care of your teeth is one of the best things you can do for yourself. That means a daily dental health regimen of brushing and flossing, and seeing The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte twice a year for a cleaning and dental checkup.
Dental checkups are all about preventive care – that is, seeing us before any problems occur. Ideally, we’ll see you every six months; that way we can track your dental health, and your teeth will stay cleaner and last longer.
Checkups typically begin with a cleaning from one of our hygienists. We use specialized equipment that does a much more thorough job cleaning your teeth than you can do at home. We can scrape any plaque and tartar from below the gum line, polish and floss your teeth, and look closely for any signs of tooth decay and gum disease.
We also track your dental health with regular dental X-rays. These allow us to see problems that are not visible to the naked eye, such as developing cavities, impacted teeth, and damage to the jaw bone.
If your teeth are in good shape, we’ll thank you for coming in and schedule your next appointment. If we’ve discovered a cavity or are recommending another procedure, such as a wisdom tooth extraction, we’ll discuss and schedule that.
At The Steele Creek Dentist, your dental health is our primary concern, and regular cleanings and checkups are how we stay on top of it. We also offer general and cosmetic dentistry, and pediatric dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
