General dentistry has really come a long way. We're able to detect things that we really weren't able to see before. We've learned the connection between the mouth and the rest of the body. We know if the mouth is not healthy, the heart, the arteries, the veins, folks with diabetes or inflammatory problems, it's all connected. So we're really able to work with your doctors, work with you to find what's happening, and really bring you to a place of health.
It's not just about one tooth anymore. We're able to see things like sleep apnea by looking at your teeth. We're able to even help you manage your diabetes. If you have your periodontal disease treated here with our hygienist, it can help maintain your blood glucose at the right levels. So it's really interesting how everything's come together now, and we're working as a team to treat a whole person.
- Keep your mouth healthy and increase your confidence when smiling
- Catch oral problems when they’re small and easily treatable

Restore Your Gums With Non-Surgical Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease is all too common among adults. The bacteria in your mouth can become plaque and tartar that irritate your gums and eventually cause them to pull away from your teeth. The resulting pockets around your teeth roots give bacteria a home to thrive in.
As part of our general dental services, Carolina Bright Smiles can treat your gum disease with Perio Protect®. Perio Protect is as easy to use as a teeth whitening tray! A special tray will be filled with bacteria-fighting medicine, then you’ll wear it over your gums and teeth so the medicine can get deep down where it’s needed most.
We also offer traditional scaling and root planing. This deep cleaning process gently removes plaque and tartar beneath the gumline and smooths out your teeth roots to prevent bacteria from recollecting there.
General dentistry gives your teeth and gums the care they need now to help you avoid more serious treatment and procedures later. Call us today at 919-296-0409 to make an appointment. You can also use our online form.
