Perhaps the most important aspect of your dental exam is the inspection of each tooth for both existing and potential issues. These may include minor chips or cracks that you may not even be aware of but nonetheless have the potential to cause pain. Dr. Harrell also uses laser cavity detection to analyze the health of your enamel and determine if any of your teeth are at risk for developing cavities. By identifying cavities early, the teeth can be repaired before they start experiencing pain. In so doing, we can keep much more of the teeth’s original structure intact.
At Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne, we believe that our dental exams are the first line of defense in keeping patients healthy and pain-free. In dentistry, it is imperative to detect problems early in order to maintain superior oral health. Even if your dental exam reveals the need for treatment, Dr. Harrell can provide a safe and effective treatment without sacrificing the natural appearance of your smile. Call or email Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne today to schedule a dental exam. If you are considering cosmetic work, contact us about a free, no-obligation smile consultation with Dr. Harrell.
