Teeth Cleaning & Oral Exams in Charlotte, NC

Teeth Cleanings

Professional teeth cleaning, or dental prophylaxis, goes beyond regular brushing and flossing. It involves removing plaque, tartar, and stains that everyday oral hygiene can’t eliminate. Specialized tools are used to clean all tooth surfaces, even hard-to-reach areas. This preventive treatment helps prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath while maintaining healthy gums. It is recommended to have at least two in-office cleanings per year, along with regular brushing and flossing at home, for optimal oral health.

Oral Examinations

Oral examinations, performed by dentists or dental hygienists, are comprehensive evaluations of oral health. These assessments include visual inspections, checking for tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. X-rays may be taken to examine teeth and bones. These exams detect issues early, prevent dental problems, and maintain oral health. Recommended every six months, frequency can vary based on individual needs.
