Patients should see their general dentist at least once every six months, and we eagerly encourage our Fayetteville and Hope Mills patients to come in regularly. Why?
Regular dental visits improve your ability to avoid oral disease, decay, and other common oral health complications. Daily brushing and flossing are crucial to your oral health, but regular dental visits are the final key to protecting your smile.
Checkups and cleanings are advantageous to patients. Benefits of regular family dentistry appointments include:
- Consistent Comfort and Wellbeing: Don’t ignore that toothache or tooth discoloration. Your smile might be trying to tell you something. When you attend regular family dentistry appointments, you can avoid or instantly eliminate tooth pain, infection, deep decay, periodontitis, and more.
- More Affordable Care: A dental checkup and teeth cleaning is always inexpensive. Basic restorative & cosmetic dentistry treatments are also affordable at the Fayetteville Dentist. Let’s treat tooth decay early so that we can keep your treatment simple and your costs low.
- Less Time in the Dental Chair: Preventive care visits are brief. Treatments to reverse the effects of advanced periodontitis or tooth decay are far more involved. The sooner we can detect and treat tooth deficiencies, the less time you’ll spend in the chair!
- Better Overall Health: Poor oral health is linked to heart disease, diabetes, and other systemic health problems. By protecting your teeth and gums with preventive dentistry, you also safeguard your overall health.
During Your Dental Checkup…
Your dentist will conduct a visual exam, often paired with x-ray imaging. We glean information about what is happening both on the surface of your mouth and on a deeper level.
Our experienced family dentistry specialists look for the following health problems during your dental checkup:
- Gum disease
- Oral cancer
- Tooth trauma
If any restorative & cosmetic dentistry services are needed, we will perform or schedule them right away.
During your Teeth Cleaning…
You can keep bacteria at bay with brushing and flossing, but plaque is more stubborn. Only your dental professionals can remove this sticky substance during your dental cleaning.
We will use specialized instruments to gently remove plaque from the teeth and gum lines. You will leave your teeth cleaning with a healthy smile and fresh breath.
We are pleased to accept most insurance plans, along with affordable fees and 0% financing. We would love to see you along with your whole family in our office soon!
