Preventative dental care is the foundation for long term oral health. Routine visits to your Fuller Dental dentist provide the opportunity for us to monitor your oral health and look for the early signs of a developing dental problem. From tooth decay to systemic disease, addressing problems early on often results in the best long term result and the chance for conservative treatment to be effective.
Developing long term relationships is one of the most important aspects of our practice – we treat our patients like members of our own family. That starts with educating our patients on the importance of general dental care. When you visit our Burlington, NC dentist office, you’ll have one-on-one time with one of our dentists to discuss your dental concerns as well as your smile goals. They will perform a comprehensive examination to look for underlying problems and take time to explain the various treatment options that are available to you.
During your routine visit, you can expect:
- A thorough dental exam
- X-rays and diagnostics as needed
- A dental cleaning
- Fluoride treatment if necessary
- Screenings for cavities, gum disease, oral cancer and other early oral signs of health concerns
We will also offer personalized oral hygiene advice for keeping your smile looking good and feeling great between visits to our Burlington dentist office.
Most routine preventative visits take approximately one hour. We recommend that patients of all ages come in twice a year for routine dental care. Maintaining a healthy smile is an important part of your overall physical health and well being. Your oral health can impact your physical health in many ways and also affects your confidence in your appearance. Our team considers themselves a partner in your overall healthcare, taking the time to get to know you and understand your unique risk factors for many diseases or conditions. From gum disease and tooth decay to sleep apnea, we offer personalized care to meet your needs.
Fuller Dental is committed to comprehensive, patient-focused dental care and wants all patients to enjoy the many benefits of a healthy smile.
Dentistry for Children
Starting regular visits to the dentist early will help teach your child healthy lifetime habits. Parents are encouraged to bring their children to the dentist early so they can become familiar with our dental office. Our staff makes every effort to ensure the comfort and safety of our young patients, helping them to develop confidence in their oral hygiene habits and to feel comfortable when they visit with us for routine care.
One of the biggest challenges in children’s dentistry is preventing tooth decay. With routine visits to our dentist office, we will be able to prevent tooth decay and subsequent dental cavities. Parents can do many things to ensure the health of their children’s teeth in between visits:
- Brushing teeth twice a day
- Flossing once a day
- Limiting sugary drinks
- Following recommended guidelines for nursing, bottle and sippy cup use
