How Often Should You See the Dentist?
Most adults should see Dr. Sohn or Dr. Lee once or twice a year for teeth cleaning and check-ups. However, if you have severe tooth decay or other oral health issues, visits may be more frequent.
What Does a Check-Up Include?
Most dental check-ups include an exam, X-rays, and teeth cleaning. Our doctors will discuss any oral health issues with you and recommend treatments or necessary changes.
When Should Your Child Visit the Dentist for the First Time?
Bring your child in for their first visit with Dr. Sohn or Dr. Lee when their first tooth erupts or when they turn one, whichever comes first. It's important to have this first dental appointment on time, as it's an opportunity for you to learn about your child's oral health.
Our doctors recommend that children visit Sunrise Dental twice a year. If your child has emerging dental issues, that schedule may change.
What is a Check-Up for Children Like?
A dental check-up for children usually includes both a full examination and teeth cleaning. Dr. Sohn or Dr. Lee may also apply fluoride to the teeth if it's needed. When your child's molars erupt, our doctors may recommend a dental sealant. Sealants protect the hard-to-reach molars from decay until your child learns thorough brushing habits.
As your child grows up, Dr. Sohn or Dr. Lee may also include basic lessons on proper brushing technique, pointers on oral health, and advice when needed.
