Routine preventive care, a part of general dentistry services, is the key to keeping your smile healthy for life. Thanks to advancements in modern dentistry and the education available to our patients, it’s now possible to retain your teeth for decades. At O2 Dental Group of Raleigh, we recommend a checkup every six months to ensure that your smile stays as healthy as possible.
Checkups and Teeth Cleanings
During your exam, we will thoroughly screen for signs of disease, tooth decay, and oral cancer. Early diagnosis makes it possible to treat conditions more effectively. Our hygienists will also clean your teeth and discuss tips and tricks for keeping things healthy.
From digital x-rays to 3D conebeam CT scans, our high definition imaging equipment allows us to closely assess things such as the integrity of existing restorations, bone quality, cysts, infections, and tooth decay.
Teeth Extractions and Wisdom Tooth Removal
Severely decayed teeth or impacted wisdom teeth are often removed before they have a chance to impact the health of the teeth adjacent to them. We frequently use cone beam imaging for a 3D assessment of the area to determine the appropriate method of treatment.
It isn’t just for kids. Adults can benefit from general dentistry preventive fluoride use, especially if they have a history of frequent tooth decay or sensitivity. How long has it been since your last checkup? Call O2 Dental Group to schedule yours today. The entire family is welcome - kids included. We’ll make every effort to schedule both yours and your child’s visits at the same time. We’re open early, late, and even on Saturdays! Check out all of our dental services to see how we can help you.
