Dental Cleanings 101 Fort Mill, SC

No matter how diligent people are at caring for their teeth at home, nothing can replace a professional dental cleaning performed by a dentist. Harmful bacteria grow in the mouth that leave behind plaque buildup that can only be removed by a dental professional. Plaque must be removed because it is the cause of gum disease and other illnesses. By keeping regular dental cleanings as a priority in their schedule, people are able to maintain optimal oral health.

There is no reason why a visit to the dentist needs to be scary. At Gold Hill Dentistry, we take great pride in providing all of our patients with a relaxing, caring, and professional environment. We do understand that some patients will still feel anxious during a dental cleaning and we will take the necessary measures to help those relax during a procedure.

During a dental cleaning, the teeth will be thoroughly cleaned using an ultrasonic scaler to disrupt and remove live and calcified bacteria from the teeth. Next, a curette will be used to remove small bacterial deposits and to smooth the surface of the teeth. The teeth will then be flossed and polished with a rotary toothbrush so that the enamel of the teeth is shiny and clean. Throughout the dental cleaning procedure patients’ mouths are checked for any signs of change since their last appointments and an oral cancer screening will be done. By visiting the dentist on a regular basis, we are able to keep our eyes open for any irregularities in the mouth. When anything out of the ordinary is noticed, the sooner it is addressed the better chance for full healing.

Dental cleanings are an important part of a person’s overall health. As will all diseases and infections, their effects can spread throughout the rest of the body – oral issues are no different. If you are in need of a dental cleaning or would like to make Gold Hill Dentistry your family’s dental practice, call today to schedule an appointment.

4.4 / 5.0

Based on 97 reviews


"When I moved I tried another dental practice. Mistake. Now I drive an hour to still use Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone from the administrative staff to the dentist are professional, kind, and good at what they do."


"This was my first appointment with Gold Hill Dentistry so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. However prior to my visit I did google their reviews which were exceptional. That being said, my first visit certainly align with their online reviews! Gold Hill Dentistry’s staff were warm, professional but personable, and they made me feel very comfortable from the moment I entered their office and throughout the entire time services were performed. My cleaning results were great and my teeth and gums felt wonderful! I look forward to a long relationship with Gold Hill Dentistry!"


"As soon as you walk in you are greeted like family. Very clean, homie feeling office. Staff and Dr. Setty super friendly, kind and professional."


"Gold Hill Dentistry is the absolute best! From the front desk, to the hygienists, to the doctor, they were all great. They bent over backwards to accommodate my special health situation and urgent scheduling needs. And the drilling/filling they did was the quickest and most painless I've ever had. Don't think twice about making them your new go-to for dental work."


"Office Staff, dental hygienists, and the dentists are all wonderful. Always friendly, helpful, professional and excellent. With so many "doc in the box" dental centers popping up, Gold Hill is a welcome exception where personal service and attention matter. (I should mention too, that the service does not come at premium cost - they take insurance and their rates are competitive and reasonable). Highly recommend Gold Hill Dentistry."


"I really like Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone is very very friendly and helpful. They are really concerned about your care."
