General Dentistry

The importance of regular checkups, cleanings and exams goes far beyond the health of your smile.
The Academy of General Dentistry suggests checkups for people of all ages twice per year. Regular dental exams help you maintain healthy teeth and gums, while also allowing the Sunridge Dental Care team to identify concerns early. Afterall, proactive solutions prevent issues and save you time and money in the long run!

During your exam, you can expect:

  • A medical history review. The dentist will assess how any new medical conditions or illnesses may affect your dental health.
  • An oral examination. Your mouth will be checked for cracked or decayed teeth.
  • An oral cancer screening. The face, lips, neck, throat, tongue, and gums will be checked for evidence of oral cancer.
  • A gum disease evaluation. The gums and bone around your teeth will be checked for any signs of periodontal disease.
  • An examination of existing restorations. Current fillings, crowns, and other restorations are checked to ensure that they remain in good order.
  • Digital X-rays when needed. Digital X-rays provide several advanced imaging options designed to save time, provide clearer dental photos, and expose patients to less radiation than with traditional X-ray technology.
Even with careful brushing and flossing it is difficult to ensure that teeth are 100% free of buildup, so we recommended a dental cleaning paired with each exam. Our staff will carefully clear your mouth of any plaque or tartar, will polish your teeth and floss thoroughly.

Save time and money, and protect your health by scheduling dental checkups and cleanings twice per year at Sunridge Dental Care!
