Professional Teeth Cleanings

Did you know that twice-yearly professional dental cleanings can keep your teeth healthy, beautiful, and functional well into your golden years? Whether you have a spotless smile or you have suffered from periodontal disease in the past, our Southern Pines dental office is equipped with the top dental technologies that deliver rapid, comfortable care. During your regular cleaning appointment, our team will thoroughly assess your teeth and gums for any signs of gum disease, oral cancer, and tooth decay. If we see anything concerning, we will discuss your treatment options with you so you are fully informed.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Tobacco users aren’t the only ones who should be concerned about oral cancer. Oral cancer is a serious condition that may occur even in patients who don't smoke or chew tobacco. That’s why at O2 Dental Southern Pines, we provide oral cancer screenings as part of our regular checkups, giving you the peace of mind you need to smile with confidence!

Dental Sealants

Seal off deep grooves in the molars that are vulnerable to tooth decay with this inexpensive and effective preventive treatment. Dental sealants can guard against cavities by forming a “shield” over the enamel of your teeth, keeping out bacteria and acids. Ask about pediatric dental sealants for your kids as well!

Teeth-Strengthening Mineral Application

Our mineral treatments are specially made to strengthen teeth in-between your regular dental checkups. They can be applied for both kids and adults and give your smile a fighting chance you need against tooth decay!

Desensitizing Treatments for Sensitive Teeth

If your teeth are sensitive to heat and cold, schedule an appointment at our Southern Pines dental office. If our dentists determine that the sensitivity is not coming from an underlying condition, they will prescribe a desensitizing treatment designed to last between regular appointments.

Athletic Mouth Guards

If you or your child is involved in any form of athletics, we highly recommend that a preventive mouth guard be worn. Our athletic mouth guards are custom-made to form-fit perfectly to your or your child's teeth.

Gentle Tooth Extractions

Extraction is a last resort at O2 Dental Group of Souther Pines, but sometimes it is necessary. If your smile could benefit from an extraction, our dentists will ensure that the procedure is as gentle as possible. And, if you suffer from anxiety or have special healthcare needs, we will offer a sedation dentistry service designed just for you!
