Doctor Steven Garrett on dental cleanings and exams Read Transcript
At Carolina Bright Smiles, we have a fantastic group of hygienists, and they are thorough and gentle, and they have just a great patient touch, and that's why patients love to keep coming back and see them. And really, in dentistry, the best dentistry is no dentistry. From a patient's perspective, the best dentistry is no dentistry. Now, from my standpoint, there's always going to be people that need things done. I'm not worried about telling people that the best dentistry is no dentistry, because things happen, and we do need to restore some teeth. But the best dentistry is no dentistry, and that means great preventive care, so both at home, what the patient does, as well as coming for regular checkups and cleanings. And if something should ever start to happen, we can hopefully catch it early before it becomes a bigger problem. It is much easier to fix if you catch it early, and it's also a lot less expensive for the patient if you catch it early. So, people love coming and getting their teeth cleaned and feeling sparkly clean afterward at Carolina Bright Smiles.

Teeth Cleanings Remove Harmful Plaque & Tartar
Receiving a professional teeth cleaning every six months is standard for the health of your teeth. It’s not uncommon to miss one of your twice-daily brushings or to forget to floss here or there, but doing so can lead to plaque buildup on your teeth. Once plaque becomes tartar, it can be removed only by a dental professional.
One of our skilled dental hygienists will:
- Clean away any tartar buildup on your teeth to help prevent tooth decay and gum disease
- Polish your teeth for that deep-clean feeling you can only get by visiting a dentist
Dental Exams Help You Prevent Big Smile Problems
After your dental hygienist completes your teeth cleaning, your exam by one of our dentists begins. Your visit might include:
- A visual evaluation
- Digital X-rays and imaging
- An oral cancer screening
Often, a full dental exam is one of the few opportunities you have for your dentist to catch an oral health issue. A thorough exam can reveal if your wisdom teeth might cause problems when they erupt or alert your dentist to the early signs of gum disease.
Committing to regular dental cleanings and exams in Hillsborough could help you avoid more serious treatment in the future.
