While tooth decay and gum disease are the most prevalent oral health problems, they are also the most preventable. By establishing an effective regimen of oral hygiene at home and making biannual visits to our office for checkups and cleanings, we can help you prevent the onset and progress of these conditions. Our office focuses on protecting against the development of dental disease as well as early detection and intervention. During a checkup visit, we’ll thoroughly examine your teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, utilizing advanced digital radiography, as needed. Our goal is to diagnose cavities, periodontal disease and other potentially harmful issues from their outset, when they are typically the easiest to treat. Stopping tooth decay and gum disease before they start involves protecting your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque. Plaque is a sticky film, which gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugar. Although brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods are important steps you can take each day at home, to keep your mouth healthy you need to complement your daily oral hygiene regimen with a periodic checkup and a teeth cleaning in Basking Ridge. During a teeth cleaning, we thoroughly remove plaque buildup from the most difficult to reach areas of your mouth and offer guidance on techniques you can use at home to better clean and care for your teeth.
Maintaining excellent oral health is as easy as visiting our office twice a year for an examination and teeth cleaning in Basking Ridge. At Basking Ridge Dental, we make every checkup an informative, engaging experience. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
