At the Lawrenceville, GA general dentistry office of Dr. Bruce Carter, we want our patients to enjoy healthy teeth and gums that will last a lifetime. To maintain a strong mouth and prevent potential dental problems, you need comprehensive exams, professional cleanings, and education about proper homecare.
The American Dental Association recommends twice-a-year general dentistry checkups. We invite you to see Dr. Bruce E. Carter at his Lawrenceville dental office every six months for your checkup. At your general dentistry visit, we will inspect your soft tissues for oral cancer, periodontal disease, and other problems. Dr. Carter will also look at each individual tooth in your mouth to assess problems like tooth decay or cracks, as well as old dental work. Sometimes old dental work wears out and needs to be replaced. We will be happy to replace metal fillings, inlays, onlays, and crowns with tooth-colored alternatives.
By looking for trouble every six months, Dr. Carter can often reduce your potential for large dental problems. For example, if left untreated, a small cavity can grow to destroy an entire tooth and spread decay to surrounding teeth. A cracked tooth can cause pain or break off and create larger dental issues. Advanced gum disease is the primary cause of tooth loss for American adults, and oral cancer kills one person every hour. If caught and treated early, these issues can be controlled.
Our general dentistry team at the Lawrenceville, GA office will customize your hygiene appointments specifically to your needs, based on the level of health or disease diagnosed at the comprehensive initial exam. At every visit, we check for signs of trouble, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Periodontal disease has been linked to an increased risk of stroke and heart attack, so our team stays vigilant to safeguard your oral health. Dr. Carter has experience in children’s dentistry, and we look forward to treating the youngest members of your family as well.
Everyone over the age of four or five should visit the dentist for a professional hygiene appointment twice per year. Our gentle hygienists at our Lawrenceville general dentistry practice will inspect your gums for periodontal disease, the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults. The hygienists are specially trained to detect, deter, and treat gum disease. We prefer to help you maintain optimal oral health so that you never have to worry about gum disease. However, if you develop periodontal problems, we’re here to help you.
If we find cause for concern, we may recommend that you change your oral healthcare routine or the products you use at home. We may also suggest a deep cleaning, which involves:
