Fairview Dental Care
I had great hopes for fairview. Very slick and modern set up. But they charged premium prices and did poor work. They charged me 3 times what my former dentist charged for my crown. And the crown fell off. For a cleaning, I sat in the chair though no less than four workers (they tend to breeze thorough so fast I couldn't keep track) asking the same quest ions, before they got around to the cleaning. I know that they give you your own television to watch but it only added to the confusion with a dozen tvs in the background, by the time I got out I was mentally exhausted. I would have preferred a more personal touch for the price and less flash.

H. Elaine Cheong DDS
Just moved to Columbia and I could not recommend this dentist more. Staff was amazingly friendly all around. I had no problems at all! None. Not any with my paperwork or my insurance. I have never had a dentist that went through all of my X-rays with me and made me feel so good about my dental hygeine. The dental hygienist was so friendly, I was sad when she said that she was finished and Dr. Cheong was going to be with me - until I met Dr. Cheong. She was just as pleasant as the hygienist. 5/5 star service.

I had them redo my ceilings (retextured) and do some painting for me. They were fast, friendly, and knowledgeable; had VERY reasonable rates (as compared to other contractors) for home remodeling / painting services. I would highly recommend them!

Dr. Hamilton does not believe in undue pain for his patients. He also participates in clinic work with the same philosophy, professionalism, and excellent bedside manner.

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
