Gentle Professional Cleaning

People over the age of four or five should visit their dentist for a professional teeth cleaning at least twice a year. To maintain oral health, it's very important that you stay current on the condition of your teeth so that if problems are detected, they can be treated early to avoid developing more serious issues. At Sunridge Dental Care, we provide comfortable, gentle teeth cleanings, specifically to detect, deter and prevent gum disease. If we find a cause for concern, we may recommend a deep gum cleaning to remove tartar below the gum line, smooth out surfaces where plaque builds up and eliminate bacterial infection.

When found at the early stages of development, oral cancers have an 80-90% survival rate. Early detection is imperative!
