Maintaining Your Dental Health in White Plains
During a typical dental examination, your White Plains dentist can evaluate a number of factors. Firstly, your doctor assesses your medical history for any potential health risks or previous conditions. Some conditions make you more likely to have dental problems. Next, he or she will check your teeth and gums using an intraoral camera. This technology allows you and the dentist to see clear images of the inside of your mouth and discuss any findings.
Our team may also use digital x-rays to get greater insight into the condition of your mouth and jaw. Finally, we take this opportunity to check for oral cancer and use Diagnodent technology to check for cavities.
Without a doubt, regular exams are the first line of defense for every dental problem whether it be gum disease, decay, or orthodontic issues. Please book your next check with us today!
Brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day is one of the greatest ways you can protect your smile. But did you know that even with the most thorough hygiene habits, plaque and tartar can build up? If this plaque is not removed it can lead to decay, gum disease, and more serious dental problems.
Regular hygiene appointments can be a great partner to your everyday habits. Your dental hygienist is an expert in keeping teeth clean and healthy. By attending these visits, you benefit from a professional cleaning, which involves those hard to reach areas being cleaned and thus protected from dangerous bacteria.
You’ll also work with your hygienist to assess your hygiene routine and identify any areas for improvement. She will discuss problematic areas and help you devise a plan to get these areas out of the red zone.
Hygiene visits are recommended every six months but we suggest more frequent visits if there is decay or gum disease present. Much pain and cost can be prevented with these regular cleanings and advice from a professional hygienist.
It is recommended for children to receive a dental exam every six months and for parents to be involved in their oral hygiene habits. During the exam, both parent and child can ask questions and will have each step explained.
No matter what your child needs to feel comfortable, we do our best to cater to those needs. Whether they want to watch their favorite show on Netflix or prefer to cuddle their teddy, we’ll help make their visit positive.
