Helping patients maintain optimal oral health is our highest priority, and our preventative dentistry services do just that. A daily routine of brushing at least twice a day and flossing daily is essential, and so are these regular services by a trusted 07417 dentist:
Our experienced dental hygienists carefully, thoroughly, and gently clean patients’ teeth, removing plaque, tartar, and stains. They also educate patients on best practices for oral hygiene, how to take care of the teeth and gums on a daily basis, and how to prevent periodontal disease and tooth decay. As a general dentist for patients of all ages (from infant to adult), we recommend a first visit at age one and monthly cleanings every six months.
Regular fluoride treatments help prevent tooth decay by strengthening the teeth and making them more resistant to acid that forms in the mouth from sugars, food, and plaque. Recommended every 6 months for children 14 and under.
Dental Exam and Digital Imaging
During patients’ dental exams, our dentists in Bergen County, NJ use digital x-rays, along with a digital panoramic x-ray machine, to detect any problems with the teeth, such as cavities and early signs of gum disease or other oral diseases. This state-of-the-art methodology allows full diagnostic imaging of the entire mouth, allowing us to take x-rays on patients who have traditionally had a difficult time with conventional x-rays.
