General Dentistry by Charles Porter Can Maintain Your Smile


Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer screenings are just one of the general dentistry services available at our Charlotte practice. Fortunately, oral cancer is one of the easiest forms of cancer to detect at an early stage. Dr. Charles Porter provides regular cancer screenings to each of our patients. These typically include visual exams for any unusual white spots or sores. He will also conduct a manual check for lumps or any other irregularities in and around the mouth.

Sealants

Dental sealants are plastic coatings that are typically placed on the chewing surface of molars to prevent decay. Though sealants are usually recommended for children, more and more adults are benefiting from the treatment. To place a sealant, Dr. Porter will apply a two-coat method, or a sealant that is hardened using a curing light. He also offers fluoride treatments, which can help protect teeth against acid and bacteria.

Dental Lasers

Honoring a commitment to using the best technology for the benefit of his patients, Dr. Porter provides laser dentistry options for periodontal treatment. Gum disease affects a large number of our patients and is the result of tartar and plaque building up on the teeth. Bacteria can create pockets in the gums, even causing the tissue to pull away from the teeth. Using lasers, which cauterize blood vessels and minimize sensitivity, Dr. Porter can clean bacteria from the gums and teeth, setting the stage for restored oral health.
