At the Lawrenceville, GA general dentistry office of Dr. Carter, we want our patients to enjoy healthy teeth and gums that will last a lifetime. To maintain a healthy mouth and prevent 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. 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 tooth in your mouth to assess problems like tooth decay or cracks as well as previous dental work. Sometimes old dental work wears and needs to be replaced. We will be happy to replace metal fillings, inlays, onlays, and crowns with tooth-colored alternatives.
By examining your mouth every six months Dr. Carter can often reduce your potential for large dental problems. For instance, 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 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 then these issues can be controlled.
Our general dentistry team at our office will customize your hygiene appointments specifically for your individual needs and based on the level of health or disease diagnosed at the initial exam. At every visit, we check for potential issues such as tooth decay and gum disease. Periodontal disease has been linked to an increased risk of stroke and heart attack, which means 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, which is 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 for you to 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 then 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:
