Preventive care is an important part of everyone’s dental regimen and involves good dental hygiene. At the office of Elliott Gutman, DMD our Hudson Heights dental office specializes in preventive care, including annual cleanings and caring for adult and children’s teeth. Preventive dental care is an important part any dental hygiene regimen. Patients seeking preventive dental care should come in each year for a dental cleaning and exam and to have teeth and gums checked for problems or to track dental health.
Preventive care is the best way to keep teeth from getting cavities and tooth decay. Plaque and tartar build up daily on teeth and can be hard to scrape off with brushing alone. Flossing and regular cleanings can prevent this buildup on teeth. Regular brushing and flossing alone cannot get as deeply into the crevices where food and bacteria hide, causing plaque and tartar to form on the teeth. Plaque is a hard buildup that forms a film over teeth. This film can damage teeth and eventually cause tooth decay, which can cause cavities and gum disease. Patients should have a dental cleaning each year because our Hudson Heights dental office dentist can get deep into the pockets between the teeth and gums to rid the teeth of excess food, debris and bacteria that can hide in pockets.
Our Hudson Heights dental office is experienced in all aspects of dentistry as well as in educating patients on the importance of preventive dental care. Prevention of gum disease is key to having healthy teeth. We can also detect oral cancer with our exams and help save money on future dental issues. Along with annual cleanings, regular oral care, brushing and flossing can help keep teeth clean and healthy. Call today and experience the difference in dentistry at our offices!
