To keep your smile healthy, we recommend a dental cleaning and exam at our Santa Rosa office every six months. Throughout your visits, we’ll provide a variety of therapies and services including:
Preventative Dental Care
Prevention is the foundation of everything we do. Through regular hygiene visits and professional cleanings with our dentist in Santa Rosa, you can enjoy both brighter, healthier teeth and a longer-lasting smile. With the right preventive care routine, you can preserve your teeth for decades to come.
We’ll establish a baseline reading of your oral health during your initial appointment. From there, Dr. Sutton consistently monitors your teeth, gums, restorations, and surrounding oral anatomy for changes. Early intervention allows us to treat common issues like decay or gum disease while they’re easily manageable and before they spread into adjacent teeth.
3D Dental X-Rays
Digital X-rays allow us to safely screen for common dental ailments, such as tooth decay, gum disease, bone loss, and others. While traditional imaging uses two-dimensional technology, our Santa Rosa dental practice is equipped with cutting-edge 3D equipment that allows us to view your smile from every angle. 3D X-rays expedite the treatment planning process, provide higher accuracy of care, and widen the qualifications for therapies like dental implants.
Professionally applied fluoride minimizes decay risks, reverses enamel demineralization, and helps manage tooth sensitivity. We recommend a fluoride treatment after each cleaning. However, if you’re especially prone to recurrent decay, Dr. Sutton may choose to prescribe a concentrated gel to use at home each night.
Oral Cancer Screening
Early oral cancer screenings are the most effective way to combat this deadly disease. Since cancerous tissues are often difficult to pinpoint in the mouth, a professional evaluation can diagnose them in the earliest stages (before cancer spreads.) Risk factors like tobacco use, sun exposure, and even certain viruses — such as HPV — can affect a person’s chances of developing oral cancer.
Sedation Options Available
Do routine dental visits make you feel a little nervous? Dr. Sutton is a Fellow of the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, providing in-house sedation options for our patients in search of the most relaxing experience available. Yes, you can request sedation during your cleaning and checkup appointment!
