Preventative dentistry starts with good oral hygiene habits at home and a nutritious, balanced diet. We also provide steps to prevent dental problems at our practice, including dental exams and cleaning. The team at Modern Dental Studio in East Brunswick, New Jersey, is pleased to offer professional dental cleanings and thorough, comprehensive examinations of the smile to ensure clean, healthy, and beautiful smiles for our patients!
What can I expect from a routine dental cleaning?
Professional dental cleanings are more effective than having patients brush and floss at home. It includes tartar and plaque removal to reduce the risk of periodontal disease and tooth decay. Our team of dental professionals will also check for any changes in the smile, such as new cavities or signs of gum disease.
What is a comprehensive dental exam?
A typical comprehensive dental examination is a thorough evaluation of the mouth and smile. It includes an assessment of the teeth, gums, oral tissues, and jaw. We will also take dental x-rays to check for any problems that cannot be seen with the naked eye. That allows us to provide early diagnosis and treatment of dental problems.
Why are professional dental cleanings and exams important?
Professional dental cleanings and exams are important because they allow us to prevent or treat dental problems in their early stages. We can save our patients the expense and damage of common dental issues, including gum disease and typical tooth decay, by catching these problems early. These cleanings and examinations should be performed every six months, as recommended by the ADA (American Dental Association). Dr. Shetty also suggests patients with conditions such as periodontal disease come in more often to help control the infection and get the smile back to health.
