Importance of Routine Dental Care
Maintain Oral Health with Charlotte Dentist, Dr. Van Gurp
Regular brushing and flossing are essential elements in maintaining your oral health. Good dental hygiene also requires visits to the dentist for professional teeth cleanings and oral exams.
Richard Van Gurp, DDS is a Charlotte dentist with more than 20 years experience. Our office is conveniently located in the Belle Grove Office Park at the Arboretum in Charlotte, NC. We mostly treat adult patients, though Dr. Van Gurp does welcome children to his office.
Semi-Annual Dental Check Up
Most patients will benefit from a bi-annual visit to the dentist. If you have health concerns such as periodontal disease, Dr. Van Gurp may recommend more frequent visits. Each visit will includes a review of your medical history and dental concerns. Because your comfort is important to us, you will receive gentle and personalized dental care from every member of our staff.
Dr. Van Gurp takes a comprehensive approach to dentistry. First, one of our hygienists will examine your teeth and gums, checking for any changes in your dental condition. Digital x-rays are taken when necessary, and the hygienist may also use the Diagnodent laser scanner to check the deep groves of your teeth for early signs of cavities. Your dental therapy continues as your teeth are cleaned and polished.
Proactive Dentistry Prevents More Complex Problems
Attentive to the needs of his patients, Dr. Van Gurp listens to your concerns and reviews any problems identified by the hygienist. By taking a proactive approach to your dental health, he is able to prevent future or more complex dental problems from occurring. His recommendations for your treatment address both your immediate dental issues as well as those problems that he has detected early – which offers the benefit of treatment that is much more conservative.
Vizilite Oral Cancer Screening
As part of his focus on your oral health, Dr. Van Gurp will check your gums and the soft tissues of your mouth. Assisting in the detection of oral abnormalities is the Vizilite Oral Cancer Screening. Throughout every step of your hygiene visit you can be confident that you are receiving the highest level of oral preventative care.
