We all know it is easier to prevent problems rather than having to correct them — and it is certainly no different with your teeth. Preventive dentistry is the foundation of every healthy mouth. That is why at Sunrise Dental Service we emphasize regular checkups and cleanings. Has it been a while since you and your loved ones last visited the dentist? If so, please contact our dental office to schedule your next appointment with Dr. Makadia for preventive dentistry in Bohemia, NY!
A six–month checkup and cleaning visit is crucial for maintaining your oral health. When you stay on top of your preventive care, you are giving us the chance to remove harmful plaque and tartar buildup. That is the stuff that causes major problems, like gum disease and tooth decay. If that is not reason enough to visit the dentist regularly, you surely will love that smooth, fresh mouth feeling you get after a dental cleaning!
Patients who grind their teeth at night often do not realize it is causing their teeth to look worn or their head to ache throughout the day. Fortunately, Dr. Makadia can diagnose and treat bruxism, or nighttime teeth grinding, with a custom removable nightguard. This device resembles an athletic mouthguard and protects the teeth from themselves, making sure your smile stays healthy and whole while you rest.
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.
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! Our wide variety of available services offers something for everyone. Whether your young children need gentle checkups, or your grandparents are ready for tooth replacement solutions, Dr. Makadia and the rest of our team are here to help.

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 sports guard) from Sunrise Dental Service can help. Unlike the one–size–fits–all appliances you will find at any athletics store, our customized models are designed to fit your unique smile, providing a strong shield while allowing you to speak and move your jaw freely.
