Dental Health and Wellness in Asheboro With Exceptional, Compassionate Care

Part of the reward of modern dentistry is that we know how important healthy teeth and gums are to your overall health. Gum disease is linked to serious conditions like diabetes, heart attacks and strokes, even low birth weight babies. When we perform comprehensive exams and regular checkups, we’re helping you maintain your overall wellness, not just the health of your teeth and gums.

Asheboro Dental Comprehensive Exam

One of the most valuable services you can receive is an understanding of the present condition of your mouth. At Williams Dentistry, we strive to provide the most thorough evaluation of your dental health that you have ever received. Together, you and Dr. Williams will discuss your past dental experiences and your wants and desires for your health.

A comprehensive exam includes:

  • oral cancer screening
  • periodontal examination of the gums and bone that surround your teeth
  • assessing the health of each individual tooth and the condition of existing fillings, crowns, implants, etc.
  • a functional exam of how your jaw joints, chewing muscles and your teeth and bite all work together.
  • diagnostic digital photos of your mouth
  • appropriate x-rays, which may include images of your teeth, the entire jaw system, and any areas of concern
  • if needed, impressions for models of your teeth, and bite records to assemble the models on a jaw simulator.

Asheboro Dental Hygienist and Teeth Cleaning Services

We customize your dental cleanings based on what your periodontal exam reveals your individualized needs are. Dental cleanings are more than just a “cleaning,” and we make an accurate diagnosis before recommending any treatment. During your visit, you will enjoy a thorough, caring and highly personal experience. Your gum health and bone levels will be evaluated, and your teeth will be carefully cleaned and polished. We will conduct an exam of your teeth, as well as screen for oral cancer. When necessary, we will take appropriate x-rays.

Asheboro Gum Disease Treatment

With regular checkups, we can spot and treat gum disease in its early stages and prevent the damage that advanced gum disease can cause. If your gums become diseased, you can lose the bone support around your teeth. This can cause loosening of the teeth, and eventually tooth loss. If periodontal disease (gum disease) is detected, our treatments will be customized to your individual symptoms and discussed with you prior to beginning any therapy.
