"The Best Dental Office in Horry County! This past Monday I had 4 teeth extracted. I was sedated for the procedure, and did not feel anything. After waking up, I was pain free. Having a phobia and panic attacks at previous dental offices. This place was a lifesaver. From the front desk staff, the hygienist and Dr.Mills himself ( so happened we have the same last name, I'm not related in anyway and was the first time we had met- lol) today is Wednesday and I am back to work pain free. Not many dental offices do sedation dentistry in horry county. Thank you again. ☆☆☆☆☆"- G.M. / Google / Feb 13, 2020

Best Candidates for Dental Cleaning
The ADA (American Dental Association) recommends patients have a professional cleaning two times per year. Children should have a visit to the dentist before they turn one and following that, we can help you decide when your child is old enough for their next appointment. A cleaning may help you avoid cavities because the built-up plaque, the main reason for tooth decay, is removed. A dental cleaning will also remove stains and tartar from your teeth. If you want to freshen your breath, brighten your smile, improve your overall health, and avoid spending money on more expensive treatments, make an appointment for a dental cleaning at Market Common Dentistry.
What To Expect with Dental Cleaning
Your cleaning will begin by addressing the tartar and plaque buildup from your enamel, which is challenging to remove at home with just daily brushing and flossing. Professional equipment is used to scale buildup without affecting the enamel. To begin, a device with ultrasonic technology breaks up large areas of plaque and tartar with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Next, handheld tools, such as a scaler or curette, will remove any remaining buildup. Every tooth will be treated individually to get all the plaque and tartar. After your teeth have been scaled, your enamel will be carefully polished to remove stains. If requested or needed, a professional fluoride treatment will be completed following your cleaning.
Dental Cleaning Follow-Up
Dr. James E, Mills & Associates may recommend cleanings more often if you have other oral health concerns, such as periodontal disease. Throughout your appointment, the doctor or an assistant on his team will help you design a routine for good oral health at home by recommending dental products and demonstrating techniques that can focus on your concerns. These are advantageous for your teeth, wallet, and overall health so be sure to attend your dental appointments at Market Common Dentistry.
