It doesn’t make sense to wait until problems arise and then come in for treatment. Yes, sometimes issues come up without any warning, but far more often all it takes is a commitment to preventive care to keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy. Here at Morris Plains Center for Dentistry, we Randolph dentist urge you to come in every six months for a visit to have a complete examination and teeth cleaning. When combined with your daily oral hygiene regimen and a nutritious diet limited in sugar, you can feel confident that you are doing everything possible for your teeth and gums.
Dental plaque is bacterial in nature. It’s invisible, but hazardous; eroding tooth enamel and irritating and reddening gums. And that’s just for starters. Any plaque that is not removed as part of your brushing and flossing will harden and become tartar. You cannot remove tartar with at-home methods. Instead, you need to see our Randolph dentist. Tartar buildup is eradicated with a professional teeth cleaning. In addition, if are showing any effects of early stage gum disease, gingivitis, our teeth cleaning will reverse them, and set your gums back on the right track, toward optimal well-being. If gingivitis is allowed to progress, the result is the latter stage of gum disease, periodontitis. That means inflammation, infection, persistent bad breath, receding gums, bleeding when you brush, loss of gum and bone tissue, and loose teeth are all very possible. And you would then require a more invasive type of cleaning known as scaling and root planing. Our Randolph dentist wants you to be able to avoid that. Furthermore, our examination and x-rays ensures that any cavities are treated promptly, preventing potential toothaches, infections, root canal, and extractions later.
