If you want to make sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy, you will want to visit us at Rochdale Dental Care for periodic dental exams and teeth cleanings. Our top-notch Springfield Gardens dentist, Dr. Marlene Reynolds Cox, will be able to provide you with the very best dental care around.
In order to make sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy, you should come to our practice for periodic teeth cleanings and dental exams by our Springfield Gardens dentist. During your dental exam, your entire mouth will be screened for many different oral health problems, including the health of your gums. If our dentist sees that you have developed gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, she may recommend that you have several dental cleanings over the coming months to help get your gums back to good health. Having a periodic teeth cleaning will also make sure that all excess plaque, bacteria and tartar is removed for your teeth so that you will not develop dental cavities. Plaque contains dental acid which eats through your tooth enamel and causes cavities. If tartar is allowed to remain on teeth, it can cause the development of deep pockets to form between your teeth and gums. Once this occurs, plaque, bacteria and food debris will all gather in the deep pockets and infection will form. At this point you will have gum disease which needs to be treated with a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment. The good news is that gum disease can generally be prevented if you follow a great at-home teeth cleaning regimen, and also visit our dental practice for periodic teeth cleanings and dental exams. The teeth cleanings will ensure that the deep pockets do not develop, and the dental exams will help ensure that should any problem occur, that it will be addressed very early on so that gum disease will be prevented.
