A preventive attitude toward your oral health maintains your smile’s beauty by removing plaque and tartar before they cause significant harm. While the brushing and flossing you perform each day form the basis of this protection, by visiting your dentist regularly, you receive additional care beyond your at-home capabilities. If it has been more than half a year since your last cleaning, schedule a visit to inspect the results of your daily oral hygiene routine. We can help protect your teeth from decay and let you know if certain areas require additional care. These regular visits allow us to treat cavities and gum disease before they progress into more advanced forms.
At Sunny Smiles Family Dentistry, we can help you avoid the pain of oral health problems by offering regular preventive checkups to clean your smile. Each time we treat your smile, we provide an opportunity to catch the disease and provide a more conservative treatment than required at a later time. If you wait for painful symptoms to appear before visiting the dentist, it is often too late to provide a simpler form of treatment. By learning about the importance of routine checkups, you can feel confident in receiving valuable dental care!
When Should I Go To The Dentist?
The American Dental Association suggests visiting your dentist at least twice per year to receive a preventive cleaning and examination of your smile. These six-month appointments create a dental record that tracks the development of your oral health and lets us know when sudden changes appear in your grin. While you must brush and floss daily, biannual cleanings provide a more extensive removal of plaque buildup you may have difficulty treating on your own. When we discover a problem with your oral health, we will provide a diagnosis and plan a treatment right away.
Emergency Dental Visits
When you have an unexpected injury to one of your teeth, do not wait until your next appointment to have it seen. We also offer emergency visits to treat painful toothaches and physical trauma as soon as they appear. Timely treatment of chipped, cracked, infected, or even knocked-out teeth can make an important difference in maintaining the integrity of your smile!
