Get Checkups and Cleanings Now and Save Money Later
School will be starting up shortly and summer vacations will be coming to an end. A lot of people come to the Myrtle Beach area for vacation because of our beautiful shorelines and great golf courses. Summer truly is a wonderful time here. Because the summer is ending, it is time to start thinking about getting those checkups and cleanings done before they start back to school.
Getting our kids to the dentist is another story. Many of them cringe when thinking about it and some are intimidated by it. That’s why it is important to keep a regular schedule of cleanings and checkups so you can prevent the more major problems from occurring down the road. Also, this gives the doctor an opportunity to monitor their teeth as they are coming in and take notice if there could be any problems down the road.
Considering Dental Sealants
When you bring your kids into the office, one thing you may want to consider is dental sealants. Simply, sealants are a way to protect and increase the longevity of your children’s teeth. It really is a preventative measure that can save you tons of money down the road. Sealants don’t last for ever but they can certainly prolong the life of the natural teeth and save you money in the early years of their life. As the picture illustrates to the left, the sealant covers the tooth and fills in the valleys of the tooth providing a strong seal and protection against cavities.
Coming In For The First Time
Maybe you haven’t been to our office before. First; we would welcome the opportunity for you to come by and visit with us. Come and see our office and meet our staff and Dr. Holladay. We have a very personal office and was voted the best cosmetic dental office in Myrtle Beach in 2013. We were very honored to receive that award.
If you haven’t been to our office, the first thing we will want to do is just give you a good old fashioned and thorough exam complete with digital x-rays and a consultation with Dr. Holladay. The doctor will review your exam and then talk with you about any potential problems or concerns he may have and explain it thoroughly so that you will have a good understanding of your teeths current condition. He will also be looking at your overall oral health also.
If you haven’t had a cleaning in a while, you may at that point want to get your teeth cleaned. Depending on how long it has been, the doctor and his hygienist will make a recommendation as to what type of cleaning needs to be done. This takes into account the condition of your teeth, if you have gum redness or signs of gum disease, and how much build up you may have on your teeth and up next to the gums. Our deep cleaning process is second to none with many of our patients testifying of how fresh and clean their mouths feel.
Each treatment plan is designed with you in mind. We want to make you as comfortable as possible and if you bring your kids in, we want them to see that going to the dentist is not a bad thing. Advancements in treating various conditions have made dentistry more comfortable than ever.
