A sticky film called plaque, which continuously accumulates in the mouth harbors bacteria that cause both tooth decay and gum disease. While the harmful bacteria in accumulations of plaque eat away at tooth enamel and cause cavities, they also inflame and infect the tissues supporting the teeth to promote the development of periodontal disease. To protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque, it is important to brush and floss daily, limit your intake of sugar and visit our office for periodic checkups and professional teeth cleanings. During a professional teeth cleaning, we thoroughly remove any plaque buildup from the most difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums, and guide you on techniques for brushing and flossing more effectively at home. For our pediatric patients, our goal is to establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of excellent oral health. To help keep your child’s teeth cavity-free from the start, we offer dental sealants and periodic fluoride treatments. For patients of all ages, our 11729 dentist provides a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums and their surrounding anatomy, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic examinations allow us to diagnose tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health problems from their outset, when they are typically the easiest to treat.
