Oral ID - Oral Cancer Screening
Healthy Smilz and their caring team understand the importance of detecting oral cancer early. If caught early enough, this form of cancer is one of the most curable.
An annual Oral ID exam, in combination with a regular visual examination, provides a comprehensive oral screening procedure for patients at increased risk for oral cancer. The Oral ID exam is painless and fast, and could help save your life.
Oral ID uses technology that has proven successful in identifying soft tissue abnormalities in other areas of the body. Click here to learn more about this new life saving technology or contact us for more information.
Healthy Smilz knows that a picture is worth a thousand words – especially in dentistry! Healthy Smilz uses small cameras right inside your mouth to take highly magnified digital photos of your teeth. These photos can be displayed on a computer screen for both patient and doctor, and are invaluable in diagnosing and recording dental problems. Intra-oral photos also enables patients to view what the dentist sees when their teeth are being evaluated by the dentist.
South Carolina Dental Center uses the latest in advance technologies including CEREC! CEREC technology is revolutionary to dentistry because it creates a beautiful, esthetic, strong and durable ceramic restoration that is precisely bonded to the tooth. It is accomplished using a digital scan of the prepared tooth and creating the restoration's design using powerful 3D software that allows the dentist to customize the result. The design is wirelessly transmitted to a special milling device that will create your restoration using a dental ceramic. Click here to read more about CEREC.

Healthy Smilz understands the importance of evaluating and treating periodontal disease. This is why they use the Florida Probe, a computerized automatic probing and charting system, which is the equivalent of the oral camera in order to convince patients about the existence of periodontal disease. The Florida Probe has proven more reliable and more accurate than standard hand probing methods.
Healthy Smilz is a fully digital and paperless office and is one of the most modern practices in South Carolina.
