Healthy, Happy Smiles
Preventive Dentistry in Simpsonville
Proper preventive care is the best way to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Routine cleanings help prevent cavities and gum disease, and regular visits give us the opportunity to recognize signs of potential health issues like oral cancer. Brushing and flossing are critical for dental care at home, but must be supplemented by professional care. Whether it has been six months or six years since your last dental appointment, call us today to schedule a preventive visit with an expert dentist in Simpsonville!
Six-Month Dental Cleanings
Cleanings and oral exams are the cornerstone of any preventive dentistry routine. Visiting Dr. Cash every six months will ensure that any small oral health issues are caught early. During routine cleanings, we’ll remove plaque and tartar from your mouth, which will reduce your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other common problems. If you’re overdue for a routine cleaning with a dentist in Simpsonville, contact us today to book your next appointment.
If we find that your enamel has been weakened by high levels of oral bacteria and acid, fluoride treatments are a great way to restore your teeth and prevent cavities. This non-invasive, painless treatment encourages minerals like fluoride and phosphate to bond to the surface of your enamel and strengthen the outer layers of your teeth.
The process of fluoride treatment takes only a few minutes, and simply involves the application of a highly-fluoridate gel or paste directly to your teeth. After treatment, your enamel will absorb the minerals, which strengthen teeth and can reverse the early stages of decay.
Sealants are a great way to fight back against cavities. Dental sealants consist of a special type of dental resin that is applied directly to your teeth (usually your rear molars, since these teeth are most susceptible to cavities). After it is applied, the dental resin hardens into a clear, plastic barrier which prevents oral bacteria, acid, and food particles from directly contacting your teeth. In turn, this prevents the formation of cavities.

Oral Cancer Screenings
At every routine oral exam, Dr. Cash will thoroughly examine your mouth for signs of oral cancer, such as lesions, discoloration, bumps, and irregular patches of tissue. Oral cancer is often very hard to recognize until it progresses, but regular screenings at Pearl Dental Studio will ensure that this oral issue is caught as early as possible.
