Preventative Dental Care
Preventative care is essential for good oral health. Regular dental care gives your dentist a chance to examine and evaluate your mouth and teeth in a proactive way that helps to prevent future problems.
Our goal is to keep patients as healthy as possible. In addition to keeping appointments for routine dental care, the best way to achieve optimal oral health is to practice good hygiene at home.
During a dental cleaning, you can expect your dentist or hygienist to perform the following tasks:
- Root Planning
- Tooth Polishing
Throughout the procedure, plaque and tarter that collects in areas that are usually inaccessible when brushing your own teeth will be thoroughly cleaned. Your gums will be cleaned in crevices that your home toothbrush cannot easily access, and your teeth will be professionally polished.
Dental x-rays are also an important aspect of a dental exam because they can detect damage affecting your teeth and gums that may not be visible during routine dental treatment. In order to evaluate your overall dental health, Dr. Marcantonio will look for abnormalities and assess the condition of any previous dental work and restorations that may have been done.
Dr. Marcantonio will also go over brushing and flossing techniques to address problem areas. You'll be able to incorporate these habits into your daily routine.
