Welcome to the dental practice of Dr. Scott A. Young serving patients in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the neighboring communities. Dr. Young and our dedicated team are excited to boost your smile this summer with a professional dental cleaning and checkup.

According to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), patients who receive routine dental care every six months benefit from improved oral health. We find that routine dental cleanings and checkups are the perfect complement to your daily brushing and flossing routine when it comes to maintaining your oral health.

So, what can you expect during a professional dental cleaning? Our experienced team will clean your teeth, perform an exam, and take X-rays as needed. We will remove tartar above and below the gum line, polish your teeth and floss them. We will also check for the following:

— Signs of tooth decay

— Your gum health

— Your bite

— Signs of tooth grinding or TMJ

— Infection or oral cancer

According to the AGD, routine dental checkups may help lower the risk for certain diseases, such as heart disease and stroke. Life-threatening medical conditions, such as oral cancer, can be detected in their early stages during a dental exam. Regular dental cleanings also keep gum disease, tooth decay and bad breath away. Another benefit to routine professional checkups is that it allows us to detect and fix issues early on. This is also the stage when conditions can be most economically and least invasively treated.

Are you ready for your smile boost for summer? We invite you to give us a call at 704-541-5900 to schedule your dental cleaning and checkup with Dr. Scott A. Young in Charlotte, North Carolina, today!
