Support and Protect Your Oral Health
Daily brushing and flossing are great ways to protect your oral health and keep your teeth looking their best. However, at-home oral hygiene habits alone may not be enough to safeguard your smile from certain oral health issues. When it comes to your dental health, trust in a professional like Dr. Steven Yang to ensure your teeth and gums are free of underlying conditions.
At Capstone Dental, we encourage patients to visit our general dentist in Charlotte, NC for biannual dental cleanings and exams. Routine appointments are crucial in preserving your oral health and giving you peace of mind when it comes to potentially serious complications. Read on to learn more about these visits and when it’s time to schedule an appointment.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
At your regular dentist appointment, Dr. Yang will conduct a thorough dental examination, where he’ll use both dental tools and advanced dental technology to evaluate your teeth, gums, and jaw for any underlying conditions. Using intraoral cameras and digital and panographic x-rays, we can screen for periodontal disease, orthodontic concerns, cavities, and tooth damage.
If our dentist detects any health concerns, he’ll discuss his findings with you and work to formulate a personalized treatment plan to get your oral health back on track.
Professional Dental Cleanings
Daily brushing may not always be enough to remove harmful bacteria from your teeth and gums. Our expert dental hygienists can thoroughly clean your mouth and prevent the development of cavities or tooth decay. Depending on your individual needs, we can provide general teeth cleaning or a deep teeth cleaning.
Using either the Cavitron magnetostrictive scalers or the Piezo ultrasonic scaler, our hygienists will ensure your teeth cleanings are both effective and comfortable.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer is a serious condition that affects nearly 54,000 Americans per year. Early detection can help save lives, which is why our dentist conducts both tactile and visual oral cancer screenings at regular dental appointments. Thanks to our advanced VELscope and Oral CDX technologies, we can swiftly and effectively test patients for oral cancer.
