Preventive Care in Westampton
Preventive care is the foundation of outstanding oral health, because it just so happens that stopping gum disease and tooth decay is more efficient than having to treat it once you are experiencing the consequences of them. At the dental practice of Ella Kerzhner DMD, we use every measure at our disposal to get out ahead of problems before they develop.
Our Westampton teeth cleaning
is a treatment you should get every six months. Some people wonder if that frequency is really necessary. Well the response to that is the fact that tartar buildup erodes your tooth enamel, and irritates, inflames, and infects your gums just as much as its more film-like version, dental plaque. And while regular brushing and flossing succeeds in removing most, if not all, of the plaque on your teeth and between your gums and teeth, tartar cannot be affected by home oral hygiene. Our Westampton teeth cleaning
eradicates tartar, which means you are less prone to future bouts of tooth decay the cavities that result from them. And when it comes to gum disease, the first stage of it is called gingivitis. Irritation and redness are common. With a professional cleaning, those signs are reversed. Sometimes, in more stubborn cases, you may require a second round of cleaning. But the bottom line is that the progression of gum disease stops. That is important, because the later stage brings with it inflammation and even infection. The symptoms include bleeding gums when you brush your teeth, receding gums that expose the roots of your teeth and leave them more susceptible, and consistently bad breath. Eventually, your gum and bone tissue may erode, with the result being loose teeth.
