Brushing and flossing is vital for healthy teeth and gums. However, even patients who practice impeccable oral hygiene habits require routine professional dental care. At National Dental Sunnyside, our team provides general dentistry in Queens, utilizing advanced techniques in preventative and restorative care for a healthy smile that can last a lifetime.
Did you know that oral bacteria repopulate every few months? While brushing and flossing can keep these microbes at bay for a time, it is not enough to maintain healthy teeth and gums long-term. Therefore, professional dental cleanings are necessary to remove plaque, tartar, and other irritants so that you can enjoy optimal oral health for years to come. >> Learn more about professional dental cleanings
Routine Dental Examinations
Typically performed during the same visit as your cleaning, a dental examination allows your doctor to monitor the health of your teeth, jaw joints, gums, and other oral soft tissues. These assessments are crucial, as early detection typically means less invasive, more cost-effective treatment. Without routine check-ups, minor issues can worsen and compromise your oral health. >> Learn more about professional dental exams
X-rays are periodically necessary so that the health of the teeth roots and supporting bone can be evaluated. Our advanced digital x-ray system allows the doctor to diagnose with precision, manipulating the image as necessary to obtain accurate views. Additionally, digital radiographs are much safer than traditional units, as they emit much less radiation. >> Learn more about digital X-Rays

If plaque deposits, tartar, food, or debris are not removed from the teeth routinely, these irritants can cause the gums to become red, inflamed, and tender. Periodontal disease begins with gingivitis. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress into periodontitis, which erodes the bone around the roots. Eventually, this condition can lead to mobility or even tooth loss. At our Sunnyside practice, our periodontists offer a wide array of gum treatments to eradicate infection and keep your smile healthy. >> Learn more about periodontal care
Oral Cancer Screenings
When it comes to oral cancer, early detection is key. In fact, according to The Oral Cancer Foundation, just over half of patients diagnosed with the condition this year will still be alive in five years. However, it is important to understand that in most cases, oral cancer is treatable if diagnosed in the early stages. That is why our doctors will perform an oral cancer screening during every dental examination. This simple and straightforward assessment usually takes less than five minutes, yet it can quite literally save your life. >> Learn more about oral cancer screenings
