General & Family Dentistry in Sylva, NC

Regular checkups are an important part of your oral and overall health. At Dr. Patrick McGuire’s dental office, we recommend seeing us at least twice a year, because brushing and flossing alone aren’t enough to keep your teeth healthy and clean.

During checkups, we’ll clean your teeth, check for signs of oral cancer and gum disease and make sure your teeth are free of cavities and plaque. When plaque forms on teeth, it can most easily be removed with a dental cleaning. For good dental health, brush your teeth twice daily, floss once a day and come see us twice a year!

We also offer custom nightguards and bite guards, which can be helpful if you bite or grind your teeth while you sleep. Bruxism is a common but under-diagnosed condition that involves unconscious teeth grinding. Most often triggered by stress, bruxism can make you vulnerable to more serious neuromuscular conditions if left untreated.


A more complete list of our general and family dentistry services includes:

  • Regular Checkups
