Dental Checkups & Cleanings

When you become our practice’s newest patient, we’ll always want to start with a comprehensive checkup and hygiene appointment. These visits are vital because they allow us to professionally support your smile and keep it confident and problem-free over the years. During your in-depth cleaning, one of our talented hygienists will remove cavity-causing plaque, tartar, and minor stains from the teeth and gums. Then, one of our dentists will perform an oral exam, during which they’ll examine every aspect of your dental health and identify potential problems at their earliest stages.

Dental Sealants

Younger patients who are still learning how to brush and floss hard-to-reach teeth may suffer from more cavities than normal in these areas over time. Thankfully, dental sealants can provide plenty of quality protection! Sealants are thin, tough plastic layers that are applied over the chewing surfaces of certain teeth (typically the molars and premolars). Once they’re hardened in place, they’ll prevent food particles and harmful bacteria from settling there.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer is a very common health problem, with tens of thousands of new cases identified on a yearly basis. What’s worse is that nearly half of these patients don’t survive more than five years past their initial diagnosis because symptoms are identified too late. Thankfully, our dentists integrate oral cancer screenings into every regular checkup here in Canton. We will closely examine your oral tissues, tongue, throat, and neck for any indications of cancerous cells and will give you further instructions for diagnosis and treatment if anything concerning is found.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a valuable mineral that actually can strengthen your tooth enamel and minimize decay over time as long as it’s ingested in water or food regularly. Unfortunately, the rise in popularity of fluoride-free bottled water has left many families’ smiles without this extra support. At Dentistry at Hickory Flat, our dentists are happy to offer professional fluoride applications to both children and adults in need. Our goal is to help every patient enjoy a happy, healthy smile for life!
