All those heart-shaped candies and boxes of chocolates that were passed around over Valentine’s Day may have been fun to enjoy. But all that added sugar will be feeding dangerous oral bacteria and increasing your risk for decay and disease. It isn’t just candy that you should be mindful of, however. You see, there’s actually a lot of sugar in foods you might consume regularly without a second thought. This includes yogurt, ketchup, salad dressing, and granola bars. To keep your mouth safe, you will need to do your part at home with brushing, flossing, rinsing, and the like. But you will also need to find a dentist in Charlotte, NC that you can trust to keep up with your ever-changing dental needs. That’s where we come in!
Today, we’d like to talk about a few of the areas in which we can help. It all adds up to a comprehensive oral health package for you and your family. So, keep reading, and then be sure to get in touch to schedule your next visit to Burley Dentistry!
Professional Teeth Cleanings And Dental Exams
Our office offers dental cleanings and exams to patients of all ages and backgrounds. We can help diagnose emerging issues, treat them, and prevent new ones from occurring by making sure you get the proper hygiene and examination you need to stay healthy.
To that end, we utilize intraoral imaging, digital X-rays, DIAGNOdent cavity detection, and other technologies to make sure we don’t miss anything. We also inspect your mouth for signs of oral cancer. If you have a problem, you can rest assured that we will find it, and then we will work hard to keep you on the good road moving forward.
Teeth Whitening Solutions
If your yellow teeth make you feel too blue to smile, you’ll be happy to know that we offer both in-office and take-home whitening treatments. We can use either the Zoom! or Venus whitening methods to produce the great results you deserve! Don’t forget to ask about our other great cosmetic dentistry solutions!
Gum Disease Treatment
Did you know that the #1 cause of tooth loss in adults is gum disease? True story. It is also linked to more general health problems. That’s why gum disease treatment has become an integral part of our general dentistry services.
When you arrive, we will talk with you about gum disease and how you can do your part at home to prevent it in the future. After that, we can provide a variety of treatments to help eliminate the infection. We offer scaling and root planing procedures, oral irrigation (cleansing of the periodontal pockets), and antibacterial rinses. In some severe cases, we may recommend some sort of periodontal surgery.
Activities such as football, soccer, wrestling, etc. can be bad for your oral health. But we can help you prevent dental injuries during sports by crafting a custom-built athletic mouthguard. These Under Armour mouthguards are specially designed to fit your mouth snugly to prevent lost or broken teeth. We can even design them in your favorite colors and team logos!
Dental Fillings & Dental Implants
Sometimes things go awry. We get that. But we’ll be here to get you back on track fast. We offer tooth-colored fillings for cavities, and life-like dental implants to replace missing or severely damaged teeth. Plus, Dr. Burley is one dentist in Charlotte who can handle a wide variety of other restorative dentistry issues.
