Like proactive health care, preventive dental care can help you avoid potential problems and keep a healthy smile for decades. At our office in Mooresville, preventive care involves diagnostics, cleaning, sealants, screenings and education to reinforce good dental habits.
When you come to our office as a new patient, you will receive a comprehensive dental exam. Afterwards, we’ll provide follow-up exams to maintain your oral health. In addition to evaluating the teeth, gums and existing restorations for problems and structural stability, our diagnostic exam includes:
- Diagnostic radiographs (X-rays) to detect cavities, oral disease, cysts and tumors, and evaluate bone health
- Periodontal evaluation to examine bone and gum health, evaluate home dental care practices, and assess periodontal needs to maintain optimum oral health
- Oral cancer screening to evaluate mouth tissue for signs and symptoms of oral cancer, plus offer periodic VELscope exams to detect cancer unseen by the human eye
