Why suffer through pain and other symptoms, along with treatments that may consume your time and money, when they can be avoided with focused, timely preventive care? Here at the practice of Eyal Waldman, DMD, we can assure you that with simple everyday oral hygiene at home and two visits per year to our Brookhaven dental office, you will have the best chance to maintain strong, healthy teeth and gums now and in the future.
Both tooth decay and gum disease are caused by dental plaque. It’s a filmy bacteria that erodes your enamel, and reddens and irritates gum tissue. To keep it from doing that, you should limit your consumption of sugars and starches, both of which are catalysts for plaque formation. Brush your teeth when you wake up, and again at bedtime, with a thorough flossing at night, as well. But you need to be aware that any dental plaque that manages to stay out of reach of your toothbrush and dental floss will harden. That form is called tartar, and the only way to remove it is at our Brookhaven dental office with a professional teeth cleaning. Your tartar will be eliminated, and any signs of early stage gum disease will be reversed in the process. During the same visit, you’ll also have a complete oral examination, including x-rays as necessary, with the goal being to detect cavities and fill them promptly. Overall, the preventive benefits are less possibility for large cavities, toothaches, and the inflammation and infection of both teeth and gums; along with the treatments requires to address them, such as root canal, tooth extractions, and deep gum therapy.
