Some of the most widespread oral health concerns, such as tooth decay and gum disease, can be prevented with a rigorous oral hygiene regimen and biannual visits to your Charleston dentist. With a daily routine of brushing and flossing, you are taking an important step in stopping the detrimental effects of plaque. Plaque is a sticky film, which continuously accumulates in the mouth, harboring bacteria that feed on sugar. In addition to your at-home care routine, visiting us for a professional teeth cleaning helps to get rid of any plaque or tartar hiding out in difficult to reach spots. Our friendly, caring team of professionals will also guide you on better techniques for taking care of your teeth between checkups.  For our pediatric patients, we offer extra protection again cavities, with fluoride treatments and dental sealants. As part of any biannual visit to the dentist, we also provide a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure. Our goal is to detect cavities, gum disease, and other conditions as early on as possible, allowing for the most straightforward and effective course of treatment.

Our Charleston dentist and professional staff provide quality care in a friendly, relaxing office environment. At Pleasant Smiles, we make it easy for you and your family to keep up with preventive visits. To schedule a checkup and to learn more about preventive care, please give us a call today.
