Serving Greenville, Simpsonville, Landrum & nearby areas of South Carolina and North Carolina

The best thing you can do for the health of your teeth is to be proactive in preventing dental problems before they arise. You can maintain your beautiful smile with regular dental checkups and cleanings, along with good daily hygiene habits.

Prevent Oral Health Issues

At Wood Creek Dental, we can help you protect the health of your teeth by detecting potential problems before they become larger issues that damage your teeth and gums. By keeping your regularly scheduled checkups, you can increase the chance of early detection for issues such as:

  • Tooth decay and cavities
  • Gum inflammation (gingivitis)
  • Gum disease (periodontitis)
  • Enamel loss
  • Tooth abscess
  • Oral cancer

Tooth decay and gum disease are the two main causes of tooth loss. Preventing them or identifying them in the early stages is the best way to keep your natural teeth healthy for life.

Our highly trained dental hygienists provide our patients with thorough teeth cleanings to remove tartar and plaque buildup on your teeth. We can show you the best ways to care for your teeth at home and recommend the best oral care products for your daily hygiene needs. 

“My daughter and I had an excellent experience at Wood Creek. The hygienist was patient and walked my daughter through each step of the way. The dentists were helpful and answered my many questions eagerly. We both left with sparkling smiles and a positive experience. Thanks!” – Emily L.

Preventive Care for the Whole Family

Children, adults, and seniors all benefit from preventive dental treatment. We can help protect your child’s teeth from decay with dental sealants and topical fluoride treatments. 

Adults can benefit from regular cleanings and restorative treatments with cosmetic fillings and crowns and bridges.

Senior patients can also maintain their healthy smile through the changes that age brings by staying current with their preventive dental care and by understanding how various medications can affect their oral health.

Our top-notch dental hygienists are here to assist you in designing a personalized oral care program made specifically for you!
