Where can I find a Greensboro dental office?
At the practice of Chad Merrell DMD, we believe that visiting your dentist for biannual checkups is the best way to prevent against tooth decay and gum disease. We use the most advanced methods in preventive care, and recommend coming in twice a year for a dental examination and teeth cleaning at your Greensboro dental office. By managing the accumulation of dental plaque and catching oral health conditions in their earliest stages, when they are easiest to treat, we help you and your family achieve a lifetime of optimal oral health.
Preventive dental care begins at home, with your commitment to brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods. Regular brushing and flossing help to manage the accumulation of plaque, a sticky film that gathers continuously in the mouth, harboring bacteria that feed on sugar. In addition to your at-home care routine, it is important to visit your Greensboro dental office twice a year for routine checkups. During a teeth cleaning, your dentist removes plaque and tartar from difficult to reach spots in your mouth that your toothbrush may have missed. Children are particularly susceptible to cavities, although they can occur at any age. For our pediatric patients, we recommend dental sealants and fluoride treatment, which are proven to reduce the risk of cavities in children. We also strive to provide our patients with the education and tools they need to achieve a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. As part of your or your child’s checkup, your dentist will perform a clinical examination and use diagnostic films, as needed, to detect any oral health conditions that may be present. Early intervention allows your dentist to apply the most straightforward, effective course of treatment.
