Having a dental checkup administered twice a year by a dentist like Dr. K. Cheyn Gunnerson is essential for maintaining a healthy mouth. This simple outpatient appointment will clean your teeth while also monitor your mouth for any sign of gum disease, cavities and oral cancers.

If Dr. K. Cheyn Gunnerson finds an area of concern he will help you understand your treatment options. This might also include administering a preventive treatment such as a fluoride treatment or applying dental sealants.

If you notice something abnormal with one of your teeth in between your dental checkups, you shouldn’t wait to have it examined. Something as seemingly minor as tooth sensitivity or a change in the surface texture of a tooth could be an early sign of tooth decay.

With timely diagnosis Dr. K. Cheyn Gunnerson might be able to treat the affected tooth by removing the decayed tooth enamel and applying a dental filling. If the cavity is large or it affects the structural integrity of the tooth he might recommend replacing the tooth’s enamel layer with a dental crown.

If you live in the area surrounding Payson, Utah, and you are concerned that a cavity has started to develop on one of your teeth, you should call 801-658-0102 to have it examined and treated at Gunnerson Dental.
