We offer an alternative to individual dental insurance. Our Dental Club offers 2 Dental Exams, 2 Dental Cleanings, 1 set of 4 Bitewing X-rays and 10% off all work done. Call 919-556-0444 and let us tell you about it!
In some situations, we may recommend either:
• Prescription strength fluoride toothpaste
• Custom-made fluoride trays to wear daily
Extra fluoride provides added protection against dental decay and also may help reduce tooth sensitivity.
Prescription strength fluoride toothpaste has 5X the concentration of fluoride than that of over-the-counter toothpaste. It is available in our office or may be obtained at a pharmacy with a prescription. We currently carry Clinpro 5000 (Vanilla Mint and Spearmint) and PreviDent 5000 (Spearmint).
Fluoride trays are custom fit to your teeth. A fluoride gel is placed in the trays and then worn for 5 minutes daily. This method acts to squish the fluoride into the hard-to-reach areas of the teeth that may not otherwise be accessible to clean thoroughly. We currently carry PreviDent Gel.
