Gentle Yet Comprehensive Exams

As mentioned before, prevention is key. One of Cary Family Dental’s best preventive measures is a comprehensive exam. This exam allows our team to get an accurate, current picture of the state of your oral health.

Sometimes supplemented with imaging and impressions, you will have a highly-trained team member evaluating the health of your teeth, gums, and the soft tissues surrounding them. This time is uninterrupted, supporting our commitment to personalized, attentive levels of care unmatched by other offices.

Beyond Good Oral Hygiene

The Cary Family Dental hygiene team takes clean one step further using highly advanced laser and Piezo ultrasonic scaling technology. This is a more gentle, relaxing way to have your teeth cleaned, with greater efficiency and effectiveness. You’re going to love the way your teeth feel.

As well as effective cleanings, our knowledgeable hygienists can help answer questions and provide you with solid homecare routines to maintain the health and comfort of your mouth.

Gum Disease Therapy

Periodontal or gum disease therapy is just as important for your oral health as taking care of your teeth.

Your gums hold your teeth in place but are also susceptible to disease like everything else.

We can fight gum disease with various treatments, including our LANAP® laser technology or deep scaling and root planing.

All of the hygienists are amazing with my 2 boys and me, so detailed, thorough, and patient! Dr. Niraj is simply the best, it’s why I drive an hour for his expertise! We recently moved and I recommend him to all the friends who ask me for a great dentist!


Protect Your Smile

Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral that’s also proven to help keep your teeth strong so they can combat tooth decay.

We have a special fluoride treatment that we recommend for both kids and adults at your regular office visits.

Treatment is safe, effective, and easy.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer is no different than any other form of the disease in that we need to catch it early. Once identified, our team will present your treatment options to remove the impacted tissues and get you back to health.

Dr. Niraj Patel has special training and will conduct a visual/manual cancer screening every time you’re in the office.

Cary Family Dental also utilizes VELScope technology that highlights abnormalities through the usage of a special light. This allows for a more accurate evaluation and the potential to catch issues early on.

High-Tech Digital X-Rays

Forget about the old dental x-rays of the past. Cary Family Dental is fully-equipped with innovative, all-digital x-rays that are much safer and require less exposure compared to previous dental imaging tools.

You’ll get to see what Dr. Niraj Patel sees with high-tech digital and panoramic x-rays of your teeth.
