If you are looking for a dental practice that encourages preventive dental care, then you will want to become familiar with our dental practice, Peak Dental. Our top-notch Irmo dentist, Dr. Gretchen Pawloski Yarborough, is a dedicated dentist who wants to make sure that her patients’ teeth and mouths remain as healthy as possible.

The two most important items to preventive dental care, after following a great at home brushing and flossing regimen, is to come into our dental practice for periodic dental exams and teeth cleanings. Our Irmo dentist will let you know how often you should have these services performed based on your current oral health, any dental problems you may have, gum health, and any medical conditions you may have, as well. Our dental exams are very thorough and will make sure that your teeth, gums, and entire mouth are healthy. X-rays will be taken to make sure that there are no problems developing between teeth or below the gum line. Your gums will be measured at each dental exam to make sure that any signs of inflammation are found, so they can be treated. If our dentist finds that your gums are inflamed, and you have gingivitis – a common precursor of gum disease – our dentist will probably recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over coming months to get your gums back to good health. During our dental exams, your Mouthful also be thoroughly evaluated for any signs of oral cancer. If you suffer with TMJ or teeth grinding, our dentist can provide you with a night guard that will keep teeth from cracking or becoming otherwise damaged while you sleep. We also provide fluoride treatments to keep your teeth resistant to dental decay.
