At Charleston Family Dentistry, the true heart and soul of our practice can be found in our preventive care offerings. Our doctors work hard to ensure that when you visit us, your smile gets a fighting chance against tooth decay or other dental problems. No matter your age or condition, our skilled hygiene team is here to ensure that you stay healthy - even in between appointments!
We offer the following preventive care services at our Charleston, SC dental office:
Professional Teeth Cleanings
Our professional teeth cleanings are designed to make you and your teeth feel great! Our doctors follow guidelines developed by the American Dental Association and recommend that most patients come in for professional teeth cleaning twice-yearly.
Please note, if you have periodontal disease or another dental issue, we may recommend more frequent cleanings and examinations.
Gum Disease Treatment
Did you know that gum disease can destroy not only your oral health but your total body health as well? In fact, untreated gum disease could put you at a higher risk for diabetes, heart disease, stroke, premature births, and more. Fortunately, our doctors use the latest dental technologies for comfortable deep cleanings that efficiently target tooth decay.
Our team uses digital x-rays as part of our comprehensive dental examinations. Digital x-rays quickly and painlessly produce enhanced computer images of the teeth, gums, and other oral structures.
Even better, digital x-rays emit less radiation than traditional dental x-rays.
Athletic Mouth Guards
Do you or your child play sports? If so, it may be time to invest in a custom athletic mouthguard. Mouthguards not only protect the teeth from potential injuries, they also reduce the risk of you developing a concussion!
