General Dentistry

Dr. Robert Schmidt: Your Statesville General Dentist

If you need dental cleanings, cavity fillings, dental implants, or another general dentist service in Statesville, stop by our office. Our dentist, Dr. Schmidt, is dedicated to helping you achieve a strong, health smile for life. We use state-of-the-art dental technology to identify and treat problems early, before they can progress into more serious dental issues. Below are a few of the general dentist services we offer.

Dental Cleanings

Twice-yearly dental cleanings can prevent cavities from forming and permanently destroying your enamel. Our professional dental hygienists can clean your teeth deeply and thoroughly, accessing areas which can’t be reached with a standard toothbrush. We will complete the cleaning with a gentle yet powerful polishing toothpaste, which will remove stains that have formed during the past 6 months.

Dental Exams

After your dental cleaning, Dr. Schmidt will conduct a thorough dental exam, using dental equipment to examine your teeth, gums, and bones for signs of periodontal disease. He will also perform a brief oral cancer screening by gently examining the face, neck, throat, and jaw. Lastly, he will examine your existing restorations, such as fillings, crowns, and dental implants, to make sure they are stable and in good working order.

Dental X-Rays  

Dental X-Rays are a safe, medically-approved tool that give dentists an unprecedented understanding of our patients’ teeth. Thanks to dental X-Rays, we can see underlying dental issues that are invisible to the naked eye, such as cracks, tooth decay, and even beginning signs of oral tumors. Our office offers digital X-Rays, which emit far less radiation and are far safer than traditional film X-Rays.
