Dr. Michael B. Wilhite recommends that you come in for a routine checkup every six months. This checkup includes a cleaning and exam. Our dentist and hygienist can clean your teeth more thoroughly than brushing and flossing can. Having regular cleanings and exams can prevent dental problems or catch them before they become serious. If it has been more than six months since your last visit, we encourage you to schedule your next dental checkup and teeth cleaning in Davidson, North Carolina, today.

During your appointment, our dental hygienist will clean your teeth using a small metal tool. Then our hygienist will floss and polish your teeth. Fluoride is then applied to your teeth; this controls bacteria and helps prevent tooth decay. Our experienced dentist will perform the exam portion of the appointment. Dr. Michael B. Wilhite will examine all of your teeth and gums for signs of decay, gingivitis, and other dental problems. Occasionally, he will take X-rays to get a more extensive look. Your dental cleanings and exams promote preventive dental health. These appointments can prevent problems from occurring or catch them while they are still minor.

We encourage you to contact us if you experience any dental pain or dental emergency. Please contact our office if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Red, tender, or swollen gums
  • Gums that bleed easily when you brush and floss
  • Tooth loss
  • Loose teeth
  • A cracked, chipped, or broken tooth
  • Toothache
  • Tooth sensitivity to hot or cold
