Staying on top of regular trips to your dentist’s office helps you maintain your healthy smile. By adopting a preventive attitude towards oral care, you reduce your need for more involved treatments by stopping decay and gum disease before they even start. Your biannual visits also provide the opportunity to detect existing issues before they increase in size, allowing you to treat them before they get out of hand. If it has been a while since your last visit, you should take time to schedule an appointment today!

At Sunny Smiles Family Dentistry, we pride ourselves on helping you preserve your beautiful smile! By bringing each member of your family to our practice, we can provide routine dental care to remove plaque and detect oral threats in their early stages. For your children, we also provide the additional benefit of teaching proper hygiene habits that can set them up for a lifetime of healthy smiles!

How Often Should You Receive A Cleaning?

By coming into our office at least twice per year, we can examine and clean your smile to prevent decay and infection. While the healthy habits you perform each day by brushing and flossing form the basis of your hygiene routine, these regular meetings allow us to inspect your at-home efforts. We can determine if you are reaching the entire surface of your teeth and let you know problem areas that require a bit more concentration. We will also take images of your smile to create a dental record and detect any developments that require further attention. Your timely visits can help ensure detecting issues such as decay when they are in an early stage. Conversely, waiting for a symptom to visit can lead to an emergency, so please do not put off your regular trips!

Additional Services For Your Oral Health

If we uncover an oral threat beyond plaque and tartar during your routine examination, we will notify you and plan additional care to restore your healthy smile. If your gums become infected, we could place you on a periodontal maintenance schedule to keep your infection under control and protect the stability of your teeth. Because this condition is reversible in its early stage, your regular attendance can help detect it before it becomes permanent. When it reaches this stage, you require ongoing therapy to prevent losing your teeth.
