Fall is a wonderful time of year, isn’t it? The season offers all kinds of festivals and get-togethers, along with football and the changing color of the leaves. For many people, this is their favorite season of all.
Fall is also a great time to schedule your next dental checkup. Staying on a rotation of a spring and a fall checkup helps many people remember to schedule their routine dental cleanings and exams.
Plus, planning your dental visit now will get it out of the way in plenty of time to avoid the holiday rush that is just around the corner. Before you know it, it will be time to start shopping for presents and preparing for holiday parties and events. Taking care of your smile now is the smart thing to do!

We Do More Than Just Check Your Teeth
When you partner with us to keep your smile healthy and bright, your regular checkups are anything but routine. We’ll never rush you in and out as if you were just a number or a set of teeth that need fixing. At Charlotte Dentistry, we value each patient, and our team works hard to provide the level of care that we would want to be treated with.
That’s why we’ll take our time with your dental cleaning and exam. Your hygienist will carefully examine your teeth and gums, looking for any problems or suspicious areas that may require further attention. Your exam will include using an electronic cavity detector to look for small signs of decay that are invisible to the naked eye. We may also take a set of X-rays for a detailed look at your teeth roots, bone, and nerves.
Get Ready For That “Fresh-Mouth” Feeling
After your hygienist examines your mouth, they will thoroughly clean and polish each of your teeth. Your cleaning will remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria that can cause damage to your tooth enamel. They will pay special attention to all the nooks and crannies of your mouth that you might miss at home with your regular brushing and flossing.
When your cleaning is finished, your teeth will sparkle and feel almost like brand-new teeth! There’s just something about leaving the dentist with a fresh mouth that’s hard to beat. You’ll know that your teeth look and feel their best, and you’ll have the confidence that goes along with it.
Your Dentist Will Also Examine You
After your teeth get clean and shiny, your dentist will come in and perform their exam. They will look carefully at your teeth, especially any problem areas noted by your hygienist. We’ll be looking for cavities, gum disease, signs of oral cancer, bite issues, and other problems. Rest assured, if you have any dental problems, we’ll find them.
If you do need additional dental services, we’ll let you know. Depending on your needs, we may recommend fluoride treatment, tooth sealants, or some type of restorative dentistry to repair your smile. However, we’ll never recommend any treatments that you don’t truly need. We take a conservative approach and will only recommend those services that will repair or enhance your smile.
