Make Complete Oral Health Your Goal for a Beautiful Smile

You want your teeth to look great, but general dentistry is also about keeping your entire mouth healthy. Regular professional care reduces your odds of serious dental health problems. Our checkups include:

  • Professional Cleaning – This is the foundation of great oral health. Our team will remove plaque and tartar from your teeth to keep them feeling and looking clean.
  • Complete Exam – We will check for any signs of decay, gum infection, and oral cancer. We use the DIAGNOdent system to find cavities in the earliest stages. With early detection, we can often treat small cavities with comfortable air abrasion.
  • Digital X-rays – These use less radiation (which is good for you and your family) and let Dr. Miller see the images in a matter of minutes.

The right technology makes oral care easier and more comfortable. This is welcome news if you or someone you love has dental anxiety. The Wand® gives us a better way to deliver local anesthetic without the sting of a syringe. Sedation options can keep you calm and pain-free as well, whether you are getting preventive care or one of our restorative services.

When it’s time for your family’s next dental cleanings and exams in Murrells Inlet, SC, visit The Smile Center. Call 843-491-5353 today for an appointment. You can also schedule online.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How long does a dental cleaning and exam take?

At The Smile Center, we never rush you through an exam or cleaning! We take time to address all your questions and concerns. We also use techniques and technologies to deliver these services in the most efficient way possible. Most exams and cleanings can be completed in about an hour. It may take a bit longer if you haven’t been to the dentist in a while.

How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

In general, most patients should plan to schedule a dental cleaning and exam twice a year. Doing so allows us to keep a close eye on your oral health and monitor any developing problems. If we discover a situation that needs attention, we can treat it early before it worsens and has the chance to damage your smile.

What happens during a dental cleaning and exam?

At our office, both your dentist and dental hygienist will examine your mouth. Your hygienist will floss between your teeth and use a scaler to remove plaque and tartar buildup. To finish, we will polish your teeth so your smile can look its best. While you are here, we want you to be comfortable and pain-free. We’ll be happy to provide you with a cozy blanket, soft pillow, and dental sedation, if you’d like.
