We all know it is easier to prevent problems instead of having to correct them — and it is certainly no different with your teeth. Preventive dentistry is the foundation of every healthy mouth, and that is why Sunrise Dental Service emphasizes regular checkups and cleanings combined with other important preventive steps. Has it been awhile since you and your loved ones last visited the dentist? If so, please contact our Bohemia, NY office to schedule your next appointment with Dr. Makadia! We care our patients’ smiles from Sayville, Ronkonkoma, Oakdale, Holbrook, Blue Point, and other surrounding towns.
Oral Hygiene & Teeth Cleanings
A six-month hygiene and cleaning visit is crucial for maintaining oral health. When you stay on top of your preventive care, you are giving us the chance to remove harmful plaque and tartar buildup — the stuff that causes major problems, like gum disease and tooth decay. And if that is not reason enough to visit the dentist regularly, no one can argue with that smooth, clean-mouth feeling you have after a dental cleaning!
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer is far too often caught in its later stages as a result of insufficient preventive care. Regular visits to the dentist allow us to notice the small signs that indicate this serious condition, like irregular bumps in the mouth, unusual plaque, or a changing facial shape. Oral cancer is far easier to treat in its early stages, so do not put a hold on regular visits and screenings with Dr. Makadia.
Digital X-Rays (Intra Oral and Panoramic)
Some of the most exciting advancements in dentistry these days have to do with the way we look at your mouth. Dentists who invest in digital imaging are able to offer truly state-of-the-art care, and we are proud to say that is just what you will find at Sunrise Dental Service. Digital X-rays give us a more accurate picture of your mouth, helping us restore teeth with a precision unlike ever before.
Bruxism / Nightguards
Patients who grind their teeth at night often do not realize what is causing their teeth to look worn or their head to ache throughout the day. Fortunately, Dr. Makadia can diagnose and treat bruxism, nighttime teeth grinding, with a custom removable nightguard. This device resembles an athletic mouthguard, and helps by absorbing the shock associated with nighttime grinding protecting the teeth from excessive grinding and clenching. Over time, it makes a difference for your oral health.
Having to take your loved ones to several different dentists can be a frustrating, time-consuming experience. Instead, why not bring everyone to one comprehensive oral healthcare home? At Sunrise Dental Service, we are happy to see the whole family, and our wide variety of available services offers something for everyone. Whether your young children are in need of gentle check-ups or your grandparents are ready for tooth replacement solutions, Dr. Makadia and the rest of our team are here to help.
A cavity is one of the most common dental problems patients face; in fact, over 90% of the population will experience one or more at some point in their lives. Thankfully, placing a new filling is an easy and comfortable way to correct the damage and restore your tooth’s vitality. Instead of problematic amalgam materials, Our Bohemia team offers quality composite resin for a stronger and more lifelike result that is sure to feel great.
When playing a sport that involves the possibility of contact with a hard surface, a projectile, or another person, it is possible that your vulnerable smile could fall victim to an injury. That is where a mouthguard (also known as a sportsguard) from Sunrise Dental Service comes in. Unlike the one-size-fits-all appliances you find at any athletics store, our customized models are designed to complement your unique smile providing a strong shield while allowing patients to speak and move their jaw freely.
Dental sealants are often the perfect preventive option for younger patients who are learning how to properly brush and floss, as well as older patients who are overly sensitive to tooth decay. Dr. Makadia will paint this tough material directly over the chewing surfaces of certain back sealing these areas shut so bacteria and food particles can’t gather there and wreak havoc. By preventing cavities now, we hope to help patients enjoy healthier, happier smiles well into the future.
Dr. Makadia and the rest of our team will always do what we can to help you avoid tooth extraction. However, there are some cases where it is necessary to protect overall oral health and wellbeing. This is most common with wisdom teeth (third molars), which arrive late in your permanent smile and can cause serious problems like impaction, overcrowding, and infection. Patients can rest assured knowing that we will handle your extraction procedure as smoothly and comfortably as possible and nitrous oxide sedation is an option available for even more relaxing care.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
We are finished developing most of our teeth around the age 13, but did you know so-called wisdom teeth can appear well into our thirties? When they do come in, they cause real problems like impaction, infection and crowding of the other teeth. If any of those occur as a result of your wisdom teeth, removal is necessary. Fortunately, wisdom tooth extractions performed by Dr. Makadia are quick and effective, providing you much-needed relief.
Nitrous oxide can be a lifesaver for patients who suffer from dental-related anxiety or fear. We will administer this gas (also known as “sweet air”) through a nasal mask at the beginning of your appointment; within minutes, you should begin to feel happier and more comfortable as we work on improving your smile. Better yet, the effects wear off quickly after your appointment is finished meaning you return to work, school, or home right away – no escorts or downtime required!
