One of the best ways to maintain a healthy smile is with preventive dental care. The cornerstone of preventive care is keeping up with routine cleanings and checkups. Our dental team at Carrington Square Dental offers teeth cleanings and checkups for kids, teens and adults to maintain a beautiful smile and prevent serious oral health problems at our dental center in Waxhaw, NC.
Cleaning your teeth is crucial for good oral health. Daily brushing and flossing are needed for excellent oral hygiene, but you still need professional teeth cleanings for optimum oral health. There are areas of your mouth that may accumulate plaque and tartar that can impact your teeth and gums. Our dental hygienist can thoroughly clean your teeth to improve your oral health and also check for any signs of periodontal disease. Most patients should have at least two cleanings a year to maintain a healthy smile, prevent gum disease and hold off other oral health issues.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
Detecting dental issues and oral health problems early can reduce damage to your smile and minimize the dental treatments needed. Comprehensive dental exams once or twice a year can identify any spots of decay or damage to teeth in the early stages to protect your oral health. Our dentists use digital x-rays and imaging along with a physical exam to carefully check your oral cavity for any health concerns. If treatments are needed, our dentist will explain and show you the areas of concern, and answer any questions you have about the recommended treatment. If dental issues are caught early, treatments can often be completed the same day as your checkup.
Both cleanings and checkups can improve your oral health and reduce your overall dental costs by preventing oral health problems. Most dental insurance plans cover cleanings and checkups 100%, making these valuable appointments affordable and beneficial. If it has been over six months since your last dental visit, contact us at Carrington Square Dental to book your next cleaning or checkup appointment. We welcome new patients and accept most dental plans at our office in Waxhaw, NC, near Weddington and Wesley Chapel.
