Services in Raleigh, Cary, Durham, and Chapel Hill
I love General Dentistry because you don't limit your services, and at the same time we won't offer you a service in these general dental practices unless we have taken extra continuing education on it. For example, implants. I took quite extensive courses before I actually did that service. The cool thing about General Dentistry is once you get a relationship with a patient, if you can perform well several different things for them, then I think patients prefer that. They don't want to make and appointment, run over here and run over there and run over there for different things. It takes a lot of work and there's a lot of equipment and a lot of different procedures. It takes a lot of honing of your skills to do that. I think that's rewarding, because like I said I'm a CE junkie anyway. I love learning new things.
At Sunrise Dental, we offer a variety of general dentistry services to help you and your family get the treatment you need for basic dental problems. We can also help you prevent all kinds of dental issues — large and small. Below you can learn more about these general dentistry services and why they might interest you. Feel free to contact our team with any questions you may have.
Dental cleanings and exams are the foundation of our dental practice. When you visit our office for the first time, we will walk you through all of the examinations we offer. These exams are used to check for any dental problem or abnormality. We use specialized tools and techniques to look for things like oral cancer, gum disease, cavities, decay, infections, and other issues.
We also offer regular dental cleanings. Hygiene visits are designed to keep the mouth clean and free of damage-causing buildup. These visits are also designed to make sure you are getting the information you need to keep your mouth clean at home.
Fluoride Treatments And Varnishes
Fluoride is great for keeping your teeth healthy and strong. This substance, found in tap water in most cities and in many toothpastes, helps to maintain your enamel and prevent decay and sensitivity problems. We can treat or varnish your teeth with fluoride to give you the preventive boost you need.
