Popular General Dentistry Procedures

Cavity Detection and Treatment

Early cavity detection is the key to maintaining a healthy smile. At Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney, we use the advanced DIAGNOdent® laser detection system. This advanced dental tool can identify below-the-surface decay earlier than traditional methods can, allowing our dentists to treat cavities at their earliest stages, saving you time and money.

Deep Cleaning

More than half of adults in the United States suffer from some form of gum disease. Common symptoms of gum disease include sensitive gums, bleeding gums, and persistent bad breath. Deep cleaning is one of the most effective methods for eliminating the bacteria responsible for periodontal disease and can help you restore your periodontal health.

Root Canal Therapy

Left untreated, tooth decay can spread to the inner portion of a tooth causing a painful infection. In such cases, a virtually painless root canal can help save your tooth from needing extraction. Following treatment, our dentists can place a lifelike dental crown to protect the remaining tooth structure. Relieve the pain of an infected tooth with root canal therapy.

Tooth Extraction

A tooth compromised by physical trauma or decay may require extraction to improve your oral health. In such cases, our dentists can perform a tooth extraction to help save your smile. Following an extraction, our dentists can fill the gap in your smile with a traditional dental bridge or a dental implant-supported restoration.

Can I Afford Treatment? Flexible Financing Available

To keep treatment as affordable as possible, our Charlotte dentistry practice accepts most major dental insurance plans. General dentistry treatments such as annual checkups and exams are usually covered by most insurance plans. Our friendly staff will gladly fill out all the necessary paperwork with your provider to ensure you take full advantage of your benefits.

For patients without insurance or who are considering a cosmetic dentistry procedure not covered by insurance, we accept financing through CareCredit®, Citi® Health, and Wells Fargo. These financing options provide patients that qualify with flexible payment plans ranging from six to 60 months to help minimize out-of-pocket expenses.

We can answer any questions you have about financing options during your next visit to our dental office.
