Dr. Robert H. Watson recommends that you schedule a teeth cleaning in Charlotte, North Carolina, at least once every six months. This appointment includes a professional teeth cleaning, fluoride, a dental exam, and dental X-rays.
Our hygienist will remove all of the plaque and tartar from your teeth using a small, metal tool. Then our hygienist will floss and polish your teeth. Fluoride, which is a mineral that helps prevent decay, is then applied to your teeth. Our dentist will then perform the dental exam. All of your teeth and gums are examined for signs of decay, gingivitis, and other dental issues. Sometimes, our dentist will decide to take dental X-rays so they can get a more thorough, complete look at your smile. If any dental issues were found, our dentist will explain them to you and recommend one or more of our general and family dental treatments to repair the problems. Our dental team will make sure that you understand your treatment options so that you can take an active role in your dental care and that of your family.
We encourage you to contact our dental office today to learn more about teeth cleanings and to schedule a visit with our dentist.
