How Often Should I Visit The Dentist?
For most patients, dental cleanings and examinations are recommended at least every six months. However, if you have problems with your teeth or gums, you may need to come more often.
Preventative Dental Care
Daily brushing and flossing are important for healthy teeth and gums, but good oral hygiene alone is not enough to maintain your oral health. Regular dental visits are important for early detection of oral health problems, avoiding tooth loss, and preventing gum disease. Research has shown a link between dental health and general health, so regular dental care is important for maintaining your overall health.
During dental exams, we will check for:
- Plaque and tartar buildup
- Signs of gum disease
- Oral cancer
- Other dental health problems
Professional dental cleanings are effective for removing any plaque and tartar buildup on the teeth and below the gum line. During your cleaning, our team will clean your teeth and remove any plaque or tartar, which can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease.
Digital X-Rays for Accurate Diagnosis
Digital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide you with the best possible care. Digital radiography has made the process of taking dental X-rays faster, more comfortable, and more convenient than ever before. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, which results in significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays and no chemicals are needed to develop the images.
Our team uses digital radiography to diagnose dental problems, such as:
- Decay between the teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Improper positioning of the tooth root
- Cysts and abscesses
- Fractures in existing fillings
- Infection in the tooth nerves
- Bone loss
Our dentist can instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide you with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care. Based on what we see on the x-ray images, we can plan treatment, including oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, orthodontics, and other treatments.
If it is time for your dental checkup, please call (718) 550-6326 to plan your visit.
