Your initial visit to Sunshine Dental will include a complete dental history update where we will screen for a number of dental care issues.
Health History Update
Blood Pressure Screening
Soft Tissue / Oral Cancer screening
Examination for signs of disease or decay
Digital x-rays (80% less radiation required!)
Hygiene assisted evaluation of periodontal (gum) health
After we have the diagnostic materials we need, the hygienist will determine if you need a ‘healthy’ cleaning or if you need to be scheduled for a longer, more involved procedure.
At Sunshine Dental, continuing-care (check-up and cleaning) visits are just as important as your other dental treatments. Your continuing-care visit includes many procedures that are extremely important for your long-term oral health. Typically a checkup every six months is ideal for most patients, however Dr. Alto, Dr. Manouchehri and/or your hygienist will recommend the best overall checkup interval for your dental needs.
Routine flossing can help your arteries and immune system stay younger and healthier while helping prevent periodontal disease! Amazing!
