Preventive dental care is when you actively care for your teeth and gums to avoid oral health issues. The most important thing you can do is brush your teeth every day as well as floss and use mouthwash. While brushing is the most important preventive measure, visiting our dentist office, where we treat patients from East Hills, NY, should also be part of your oral health care routine.
Visiting Dr. Diana Pop every six months will help prevent dental concerns and catch them early if any develop. Catching issues such as gum disease or tooth decay as soon as possible makes treatment much easier.
Preventive Dental Care
Not properly taking care of your oral health can lead to many negative consequences. You could develop dental cavities or gum disease, both of which can lead to bone loss and tooth loss. Gum disease is a common infection that damages the soft tissues in your mouth. It starts out as gingivitis and can easily be treated at this stage to stop its progression.
Without treatment, gingivitis can develop into periodontitis, a serious infection that will cause bone loss and tooth loss. Dental cavities can also progress into larger problems without treatment.
A tooth filling is a simple procedure used to treat cavities. Without the filling, the tooth decay will get worse and the tooth may require a root canal or extraction. Preventive dental care is the only way to avoid these issues. Regular visits to our dentist office near East Hills, NY will allow us to catch your issues early when treatment is less extensive and less expensive.
Family Dentist Office
The best part about our dental practice is we treat patients of all ages. We encourage you to bring in your child as soon as their primary teeth begin to erupt, or by the age of 1. Early visits to our office will help your child get used to the dentist office atmosphere and not fear it at future visits. We offer a comfortable and relaxed office setting to help put your child at ease.
These early visits will also help prevent tooth decay. Tooth decay is a prevalent oral health concern that affects children of all ages. Dr. Pop will take the time to educate your children on proper oral health care routines. This will help your child establish lifelong healthy oral hygiene habits.
