While we may often take our smiles for granted, it’s important that we keep up with our oral health so we can keep those healthy smiles for a lifetime. However, with the ever-growing prevalence of gum disease and tooth decay, it’s now just as important to see your family dentist in Charlotte, NC for routine cleanings and exams. Dr. Susan A. Hockaday DDS, PA strives to provide preventive care to keep these common dental issues from happening to you.

Gum disease and decay are 100% preventable with the proper care. However, when dental problems arise, Dr. Hockaday offers a full range of dental treatments and surgeries for those dealing with issues such as infection, cavities, or tooth loss.

How Often Should I See My Charlotte Family Dentist?

You and your loved ones should see your family dentist every six months for routine exams to make sure your smiles remain healthy. Even if you aren’t experiencing symptoms, decay and other problems could still be lurking in your mouth that only your family dentist may be able to see through X-rays or a thorough exam. However, if you are experiencing tooth pain, bleeding gums, or an emergency situation, your Charlotte family dentist is here to handle all of your urgent and non-urgent dental needs.

Children should start seeing their family dentist regularly around their 1st birthday. Since decay can form as soon as a tooth erupts, it’s important to make dental cleanings and exams a normal part of your child’s oral routine. Furthermore, we can instill a smile-healthy diet and proper brushing habits in your child early on so that they always make their oral health a priority.
