Biannual dental visits here at the office of Nate Satler DDS are a big part of a comprehensive strategy for maintaining the health of your teeth and gums now and in the long term. Our dental exam and Midtown teeth cleaning go a long way toward preventing cavities and gum disease.
Dental wellness starts with a nutritious diet. Be sure to keep a close eye on your sugar and starch consumption, because they fuel the development of plaque. To address plaque effectively, brush twice per day: when you wake, and again before bed. Also floss thoroughly before bed. Some plaque typically hides out of reach, hardening into tartar. Brushing and flossing cannot efficiently remove it, but our Midtown teeth cleaning can and does. Your teeth will be less likely to sustain future tooth decay, and if your gums are showing any indications of gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease, the effects of it (redness and irritation) are also reversed by this simple treatment. And that’s a very good thing, because advanced gum disease is associated with more serious symptoms, like persistent bad breath, receding gums, bleeding when you brush, and even the loss of gum and bone tissue. And at that point, your gums cease to be a dependable foundation for your teeth, resulting in them becoming loose. It’s encouraging to know that a visit once every six months for our Midtown teeth cleaning can help you to avoid all that. In addition, you will also have a complete checkup, which includes an inspection of your teeth and gums, as well as the periodic taking of x-rays, assuring the prompt detection and treatment of existing cavities.
Contact our office right now, while it’s on your mind, and arrange a time to come in for an examination and Midtown teeth cleaning. Keep your teeth and gums strong and in an optimal state of wellness.
