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.

The staff at Gold Hill Dentistry is wonderful. They are polite, professional and helpful I have a history of working as both a dental assistant and hygienist in another state. I’m extremely particular when it comes to my dental care. My daughter recommended Gold Hill. I am very pleased with my dental care. I highly recommend the practice.

I highly recommend this dental practice. The staff are gracious, helpful, courteous and accommodating. Dr. Sagunarthy is a wonderful dentist. This is from someone who has always suffered with dental and gum issues. He is current on dental information, kind, gentle and professional! I am so happy to have found this practice!

Richard DeCristo

Dr. Sagunarthy is one of if not the best dentist I ever went to. He recently replaced a crown that was botched by another dentist and the procedure was done perfectly and painlessly. I first went to Gold Hill Dentistry for a second opinion on four crowns and maybe a root canal I needed asap from another dentist in Fort Mill. As it turned out I needed the crown replacement and only one other at a later date. That’s about $6000.00 I saved leaving this OTHER FORT MILL DENTIST. In addition to this wonderful dentist, the total staff is outstanding.

Midge Zimmerman

I have dental anxiety. I dreaded locating a dentist after recently moving to the area. I had gone to another dentist in the area but quickly changed to Gold Hill Denistry. Dr. Sagarnathy and staff are always kind, gentle and concerned with my well being. They also do a really good dental work. Other than routine work, I have had an implant, and chipped tooth repaired, all are doing well.
