When Was Your Last Teeth Cleaning?

Has it been more than a year since your last dental checkup? If so, we suggest giving us a call to receive a standard cleaning and examination. While the oral hygiene habits you practice at home form the basis for your smile care, we have the tools and expertise necessary to help fight more significant oral health issues. Timely examinations can detect minor problems in your smile before they grow into larger threats that cause pain. This means that waiting for a symptom to appear can mean a cavity or gum infection has been progressing for much longer than need be. By attending to a regular checkup schedule, you may be able to preserve your smile with less of a dent in the pocketbook otherwise.

At Sunny Smiles Family Dentistry, we encourage a preventive attitude toward your oral health. This means combining daily hygienic practices with at least two cleanings per year. Repeat visits allow us to keep track of your smile’s health by creating a dental record. This can alert us easily when changes in your teeth appear. We can also let you know if certain areas require a little more attention in your day-to-day practices.

Prioritize Your Smile Care

The actions you take to protect your smile help prevent the need for more involved oral health procedures down the road. For instance, daily brushing and flossing removes plaque and bacteria that may otherwise cause cavities. This same behavior prevents deposits from infecting your gums and causing issues with inflammation, bleeding, and chronic bad breath. If you notice any of these symptoms in between dental checkups, make sure to let us know right away. The sooner we can treat a gum infection, the more likely it is that we can reverse it.

Receiving Emergency Dental Treatment

In addition to general checkups, we are happy to meet you for any issue that requires our immediate attention. Sporting accidents and other physical traumas can result in painful dental harm that we can help you get under control. If you chip, break, or knock out one of your teeth, call us right away to repair your smile.

We also schedule meetings for patients with toothaches. This symptom can indicate a dangerous infection that should be treated right away. We could perform root canal therapy to remove foreign material and prevent bacteria from reaccessing your tooth’s pulp chamber later on.
