A complete dental exam, which includes a physical checkup of your mouth, x-rays, and plaque buildup removal is a big part of a smart strategy for keeping your teeth strong, healthy, and free of tooth decay. At Cosmopolitan Dental, prevention is job one. It takes far less effort to stop tooth decay and gum disease in their tracks than it does to treat them once they have led to damage. Naturally, this all begins with you. Adhering to a healthful diet, keeping a close eye on how many sugary foods and drinks you indulge in, and a daily regimen of brushing and flossing are all excellent ideas and highly recommended. Combined with our Murray Hill professional plaque removal, your mouth’s biggest enemy will be left without the means to do its dirty work.
An inspection of your teeth and gums will reveal any obvious signs of problems. These include red gums, loose teeth, or loose fillings. To find cavities, even small ones, x-rays are vital. If a cavity is filled early on, it won’t be allowed to expand and make you more prone to root canal infections. Or worse still, a severely decayed tooth might not be able to be salvaged. At that point, the only alternative left is a tooth extraction. Along with that, you will now have an empty space that is a cosmetic concern. In addition, your other teeth on that jaw might shift and cause discomfort and become more challenging to floss between properly. That might lead to even greater chances for tooth decay as plaque has more hiding places. But without a doubt, when it comes to preventing future tooth decay and gum disease, our Murray Hill professional plaque removal is the best strategy.
A teeth cleaning gets out all of the plaque as well as tartar, which is the hardened form of plaque. Plus, any food remnants between your teeth or in your gum pockets will also be eradicated. You end up with a mouth that feels fresh and brand new. Most important, our Murray Hill professional plaque removal keeps your teeth and gums vibrant and ready for action.
