Captained by a father-daughter duo of experienced dentists, the tooth-care team at Carter Sledge Family Dentistry aims to make smiles bright and healthy. During the teeth cleaning, hygienists oust built-up plaque, tartar, and kelp to help prevent the advent of cavities, gingivitis, and bacteria. Panoramic and bitewing x-rays allow the dentist to check and inspect the inner workings of the chompers from various angles. An exam gives experts on pearly whites the chance to peer into the mouth’s cavernous oral depths, and a cosmetic consultation provides clients with recommendations for treatments that will help whiten, brighten, and straighten a smile. Finally, a technician performs a quick oral-cancer screening for precautionary purposes.
