At the office of Dr. Chad Merrell, we focus on preventive care, to help you and your loved ones maintain a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles. Our team of professionals utilizes leading-edge approaches to halt the onset and progress of adverse oral health conditions. We recommend visiting our office twice a year for a comprehensive examination and professional teeth cleaning in Greensboro.
Preventive care begins at home, with your daily commitment to brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages. These steps help protect your teeth against plaque buildup, which is the primary cause of tooth decay and gum disease. Plaque can hide out in crevices of your mouth that can only be reached with a professional teeth cleaning. During a teeth cleaning in Greensboro, a dental healthcare professional thoroughly removes any plaque, tartar and debris you may have missed while brushing, and will guide you on better techniques for maintaining optimal oral hygiene. We believe education is an important preventive tool, especially for our pediatric patients, and strive to impart healthy habits that will last a lifetime. We also provide our youngest patients with dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which are shown to reduce the risk of tooth decay in children. As part of your or your child’s visit, we also perform a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure. We strive to diagnose oral health problems early on, which allows for the most straightforward and effective course of treatment. Throughout your course of preventive care, our team of professionals keeps you informed and helps you feel at ease.
Periodic examinations and teeth cleanings in Greensboro are vital to your oral and overall health. At the office of Dr. Chad Merrell we provide the personalized, compassionate care you deserve to make checkups easier for you and your family.
