Maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile involves periodic checkups with our highly trained team at the office of Dr. Lindi Henell. Our comprehensive preventive program includes a Sunnyvale teeth cleaning, dental exam, VELscope® oral cancer screening and preemptive treatments to protect your smile. We provide personalized care at every checkup, helping patients of all ages feel comfortable and relaxed throughout their visit.
Tooth decay and periodontal disease are widespread oral health problems. Tooth decay affects 90% of adults, and 78% of children by the time they’re 17 years old. Periodontal disease affects more than half of the adult population in the United States and is the leading cause of tooth loss. Although these conditions are prevalent, they are also preventable, with a rigorous home care routine and periodic preventive checkups. As part of your checkup, we’ll perform a Sunnyvale teeth cleaning, removing plaque buildup, tartar and food debris from difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums. We’ll also take the time to teach you how to brush, floss and make the right nutritional choices for maintaining healthy teeth between visits. For our youngest patients, we aim to establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of excellent oral health. To further reduce your child’s risk of developing cavities, we offer fluoride treatments and dental sealants. Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens tooth enamel, and dental sealant are coatings that protect the molars from gathering plaque. For every member of your family, our dentist will perform a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums and their surrounding tissues, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic exams allow for the earliest possible diagnosis and intervention of conditions that may adversely affect your oral health.
At the office of Dr. Lindi Henell, we make your Sunnyvale teeth cleaning and dental exam a positive, stress-free experience. Your family’s oral health is our number one priority. To learn more or to schedule a checkup, call today.
