A quality dental hygiene routine that includes daily at-home care and at least twice-yearly dental check-ups is key to maintaining good oral health.

The Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, dentists at the Carolina Center for Advanced Dentistry offer thorough dental exams to assess your dental health and detect potential problems before they become serious issues, as well as professional teeth cleanings to help keep your smile bright and healthy. We also emphasize preventive dental care, and we believe in providing you and your family members with the information you need to establish a healthy dental hygiene routine for your overall general dental health.

At-Home Dental Hygiene

The foundation for good oral health is a daily dental hygiene routine that includes brushing your teeth at least twice with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Brushing should be followed by flossing at least once every day in order to clean the hard-to-reach spaces between your teeth.

After brushing and flossing, we recommend using a Waterpik to remove the remaining biofilm and plaque that are missed by your toothbrush and floss.

Professional Dental Care

Regardless of how well you care for your teeth on a daily basis, plaque will continue to accumulate. Professional teeth cleanings that are part of your regular dental exams help minimize the plaque and tartar that naturally build up even with good at-home care.

During your twice-yearly dental exams, our accomplished Myrtle Beach dentists also conduct a thorough evaluation of your teeth and gums. These check-ups allow us to detect and treat potential dental problems early, and they are also an opportunity to discuss any questions you have about your oral health.
