Preventative Dentistry

Preventative Dentistry in Columbia, SC

Preventative dentistry is the bedrock of maintaining a healthy smile. At Premier Smile Center, this concept goes beyond the typical dental routines; it is a holistic approach to maintaining oral health. Dr. Glenn Smith, with his extensive experience, understands that every smile is unique and needs personalized attention. His approach to preventive dental services is more about treating dental issues than preventing them. This involves regular check-ups, dental cleanings, patient education, and early detection of dental problems. Patients are equipped with all the knowledge and tools needed to maintain their oral health, thus ensuring a lifetime of healthy smiles.

Custom Mouthguards and Nightguards

A significant part of preventive care at Premier Smile Center involves protecting teeth from potential harm. Dr. Smith specializes in creating custom mouthguards and nightguards tailored to fit perfectly and provide optimal protection. Whether it’s for sports, where accidental impacts can occur, or to combat the effects of nighttime teeth grinding (bruxism), these custom devices are essential tools in preventive dental care. They protect the teeth and help maintain the alignment and overall health of your jaw.

Importance of Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer screenings are a key component of the preventive care offered at Premier Smile Center. Early detection is critical for successfully treating oral cancers, and Dr. Smith is committed to conducting thorough screenings as part of regular dental check-ups. Using advanced diagnostic tools, these screenings are conducted with utmost precision and care, ensuring any signs of mouth cancer are detected at the earliest possible stage.

Benefits of Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride treatment is another cornerstone of preventive care at Premier Smile Center. Fluoride is known for its effectiveness in strengthening tooth enamel and preventing tooth decay. Dr. Smith recommends fluoride treatments as a proactive measure, especially for patients prone to cavities. These quick and painless treatments can be a significant factor in maintaining long-term dental health, particularly for children and adolescents whose teeth are still developing.
