Our office is state-of-the-art and our patients receive the very best dental care available. One of the most important things people can do to make sure that their teeth and gums stay healthy is to have periodic teeth cleanings at our office. When you are seen by our dentist in South Ozone Park for a dental exam, or come in for a teeth cleaning, the health of your gums will be evaluated. If it is determined that you are developing gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, it will most likely be recommended by our dentist that you have several periodic teeth cleanings over the coming months to make sure that your gums once again get back into great health.
Many patients are very careful about brushing their teeth every day as well as carefully flossing. However, this alone will not keep your teeth clean and your gums healthy. Even with the best at-home teeth cleaning regimen, some plaque and bacteria will remain on teeth. When plaque is allowed to stay on teeth for even a short period of time, tartar will form. Tartar is a hard, mineralized substance which clings to teeth. It can only be removed with professional dental cleaning instruments. If tartar is allowed to stay on teeth it will encourage the development of deep pockets between the teeth and gums, and gum disease will develop. When you come in to our office for teeth cleaning, all tartar, plaque, and bacteria will be removed – greatly reducing your chances of developing any type of gum problem. Gum disease can reach down to the jawbone and cause teeth to loosen and fall out. It can even spread to other parts of the body causing serious medical problems, including high blood pressure.
