The Importance of Brushing Fort Mill, SC
toothbrush and toothpaste

It may be one of the most routine things that parents say to their children: brush your teeth. Perhaps you now say it to your own children, or perhaps you remember having your first cavity and wish you had listened to your parents. Brushing the teeth is essential to good oral health. There are many benefits of brushing the teeth including avoiding bad breath and stains on the teeth. However, there are some benefits that cannot be classified in the same category. Brushing the teeth helps to prevent tooth decay, and it also helps to prevent gum disease – which has been linked to heart attacks and strokes. A person’s general health can be dependent on his or her oral hygiene.

Foods that are eaten contain starches and sugars, and as the food is broken down in the mouth these starches and sugars linger. Plaque is a sticky substance that forms on the teeth and when it combines with the sugars and starches that are left behind in the mouth, an acid is produced that attacks the tooth enamel. When the tooth enamel becomes compromised, tooth decay begins. Plaque can also lead to gingivitis and serious gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss.

Brushing the teeth properly removes plaque from the surfaces of the teeth so that it cannot severely damage them. When combined with daily flossing, a significant portion of plaque can be removed every day to promote optimal oral health. The American Dental Association recommends that everyone brush his or her teeth at least twice a day for about two minutes each time.

At Gold Hill Dentistry, we want to partner with you for optimal oral health. We understand the relationship between your oral health and your overall health, and we will work with you to gain a beautiful and healthy smile.

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.

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.
