Routine Visits in Hendersonville, NC
Regular appointments include:
- Cleanings: Our dental hygienists offer thorough cleaning services at routine appointments. They remove bacteria buildup from the teeth and gums to prevent problems like decay and gum disease. Using special dental tools, they can remove tartar and calculus deposits around the teeth and on the gums.
- X-rays: Our digital x-rays create detailed pictures of the teeth, gums, and jaw as well as the nerves within each tooth. Compared to traditional x-rays, digital x-rays offer safer diagnosis and treatment planning. We can also send x-rays to other offices and dental labs as needed.
- Examination: Our dentists will examine your smile after your dental cleaning. They look for signs of tooth or gum infections or oral cancer. Common symptoms of gum disease include swollen, red, or irritated gum tissue. Patients with tooth decay can have pits or holes in their enamel as well as tooth pain and discoloration. Signs of oral cancer include red and white patches in the mouth.
