Preventative Dentistry

Preventative care is the best way to maintain the health of your teeth, and ensures a beautiful smile. A routine schedule of good oral hygiene at home is the basis for a happy and healthy mouth. Dr. Lowery and the team at Nice Smile Family Dental aid in maintaining your healthy smile through regular exams, evaluations and cleanings. It is vital for both your smile and your overall health to visit us regularly for exams and cleanings.

Preventative Dentistry in Greenville, NCExams & X-Rays

Dr. Lowery and her team will examine your overall oral health through both exams and x-rays. X-Rays can show the internal detail of your teeth, and are a necessary step to maintaining that perfect and healthy smile. We’ll look for signs of tooth decay, bone loss and proper tooth and root positions.

Soft Tissue Evaluation

We want to make sure you stay as healthy as possible, and part of your visit will include a soft tissue evaluation. We’ll check for any signs of periodontal disease by evaluating your gums and the bone surrounding your teeth.

Comprehensive Examinations

Detailed dental examinations include checking all the surfaces of each tooth for decay and checking for issues with existing fillings, crowns or other restorative dental work. Our staff will make sure you’re comfortable and that you leave knowing your oral health is being properly cared for.

Teeth Cleaning

Dental cleanings are typically recommended twice a year, although more frequent visits may be recommended for some patients. During the cleaning, your hygienist will remove the tartar (calculus) and plaque from your teeth. A combination of excellent at-home care (brushing and flossing) and regular cleanings are the best path to a Nice Smile.

Fluoride Treatment

Sugars and plaque bacteria produce acid that can decay your teeth. Fluoride is a solution that makes your teeth more resistant to the acid, and ultimately decay. Be sure to ask your hygienist or the dentist about additional Fluoride Treatment options including special toothpaste.
