Preventative dental treatment options from dentist in Greensboro, NC

A beautiful smile starts with preventative care and attention. Dr. Steven Hatcher and the team at his Greensboro, NC area practice encourages patients in the community to take good care of their smile each and every day and be proactive about their oral health. This is so important for maintaining a healthy smile fro the rest of one’s life.
 
Preventative dentistry can be done with many dental treatment options available at the practice of Dr. Steven Hatcher. Patients who visit regularly for their recall appointments may have one or more of the following dental treatments completed during their biannual visit:

Teeth Cleanings

A professional teeth cleaning can make all the difference in obtaining a beautiful, healthy smile. Patients should strongly consider the benefits of the removal of plaque and tartar from the surfaces of the teeth, which can reverse gingivitis or keep conditions such as periodontal disease and tooth decay from occurring and causing irreversible damage to the smile. A teeth cleaning is a fast, easy solution to oral health care and can help remove plaque and tartar from the teeth that is not removed with regular brushing and flossing.

X-Rays

Sometimes problems lie deep within the teeth and cannot be detected with the naked eye. Although a physical examination is always done during dental recall visits with Dr. Steven Hatcher, they can’t catch everything. Dr. Steven Hatcher and his team may take routine x-rays to check the health of the teeth and jaw bone for a better picture of one’s dental health and wellness.

Periodontal Disease Treatment

When necessary, our practice also offers periodontal disease treatment. This condition is an inflammatory disease that needs to be addressed by a dental professional as soon as possible. Diagnosis can be done during a physical examination, and patients can discuss with their dentist the treatment options available which typically include a thorough cleaning and/or scaling and root planing procedures. Antibiotics may also be prescribed and administered depending on the stage at which the periodontal disease has progressed.

Home Health Care

Patients are educated on the importance of brushing and flossing after every meal to maintain their oral health each and every day between dental visits.
