If you want to make sure that your teeth and gums remain healthy, you should come to our dental practice, Laurence K. Levy, DMD, to see our 06457 dentist for a comprehensive dental exam; dental exams and dental cleanings are extremely important to ensure excellent oral health.
During a dental exam, our 06457 dentist does a lot more than simply check for dental cavities. Of course, making sure that your teeth are healthy is an important part of any dental exam. X-rays will be taken to make sure your teeth do not have any cavities developing between the teeth, and that there are no problems beneath the gum line. Our dentist will also examine your teeth to make sure that they do not show any signs of chipping, loose fillings, broken fillings, broken dental restorations, or other problems. Dental exams cannot only keep small problems from becoming larger, but they can also be cost-effective as well. This is because it is much less expensive to treat a small dental problem than to wait until it turns into a bigger one. During our dental exams, our dentist will also check your mouth for any signs of oral cancer. Your gums will also be thoroughly evaluated to make sure they are remaining healthy. If our dentist, Dr. Laurence K. Levy, finds that you have gingivitis, an inflammation of the gums and a common precursor to gum disease, he will probably recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months in order to have your gums return to good health. If our dentist fees that deep pockets have developed between the teeth and their gums, it means that gum disease has developed. At this point you will need to have a scaling and root planing treatment, which is often referred to as a deep cleaning of the gums.
