Everyone knows that we should visit our dentist every six months for a checkup, but how many of us know the implications of tooth decay, gum disease and poor dental hygiene has on our general health? It has, in fact, been scientifically linked to cardio-vascular disease, stroke, cancer and even internal organ and brain infections which have led to deaths. Your dentist may also be able to spot the signs of certain diseases while performing your check up, so the importance of regular visits to your dentist cannot be too highly emphasized. At Sunshine Family Dentistry in the City of Bakersfield, CA, we take our responsibilities in this regard very seriously indeed and therefore encourage you to make an appointment for everyone in your family.

A general checkup will involve the visual inspection of the mouth to see if any signs of disease are present, the taking of X-rays to check for any tooth decay which may lurk under large and/or old fillings or root problems, a physical check of every tooth to look for problem areas and an assessment of the state of your oral hygiene. As we practice as a family dentist in Bakersfield, CA, we are highly qualified to attend to every member of your family, from small children to the elderly.

Should it be necessary, we will clean your teeth thoroughly to remove any tartar buildup, clean out any pockets in your gums and advise you on how to achieve optimum oral hygiene by the correct method of brushing and flossing in order to prevent periodontal (gum) disease and decay from forming.

If any problems are found we will formulate a treatment plan for you and then make appointments for all the necessary work to be done. As a family dentist in Bakersfield CA, we are well qualified to perform periodontal treatments, extractions, fillings, root canal treatments, crowns, bridges, implants, tooth whitening and, should there be a need, have partial or full dentures made.

Being a modern and up to date dental practice, we have the most advanced technical equipment available and, for those of you who have a fear of dentists, we have the perfect solution – dentistry done under light sedation. We will prescribe a tablet for you to take shortly before your appointment and you will be completely relaxed throughout the treatment period, allowing more work to be done at each visit. We also offer discounts for new patients, so there is now no excuse for you and your family not to have your bi-annual dental checkup. We are also specialist for implant dentist in bakersfield.
