General Dentistry And Your Cavity Risk

What kind of risk do you have for cavities? If you want to do something to prevent oral health problems, think about more than just your daily routine. You should also have regular oral health exams to make sure your teeth remain healthy. Sunny Smiles provides valuable services during regular appointments. At these visits, we can provide reviews as well as cleanings to help you lower your risk for future problems. When we identify issues with your well-being, we can take steps to treat them before there are complications that need to be resolved.

General Dentistry Helps You Prevent Potential Oral Health Issues

General dental care plays a valuable role in your overall commitment to avoiding dental decay and gum disease. There are several reasons for this. One important one is that your appointment includes teeth cleanings that will remove plaque as well as tartar. You also benefit from feedback about the state of your smile. If there are issues, we can tell you about them, and we can provide treatment before there are more serious problems that need to be resolved.

What To Expect At A General Appointment

General appointments provide both detailed evaluations and regular teeth cleanings. Your reviews lead to warnings about decay and gum disease, as well as possible problems with wear and tear that points to issues with bruxism, and problems with your jaw movement that suggest an issue with TMJ disorder. Your cleanings fight the buildup of plaque as well as tartar. Tartar removal is a particularly important service, as this effort is capable of clearing the buildup of bacteria you cannot address through brushing and flossing alone.

Following Routine Care With A Restorative Procedure

So what should you expect if you need to do something about an active oral health problem? When it comes to cavity treatment, the earlier you schedule care, the less likely you are to have complications that call for more involved services. You are less likely to need treatments like root canal therapy when your dentist can check for cavities that have recently developed. Dental fillings that we put in place to restore teeth affected by cavities provide valuable protection as well as cosmetic coverage.
