If you want to make sure that your teeth stay cavity-free, and that your gums stay free of gum disease, you should make sure that you visit our dental practice for periodic dental exams, and also have teeth cleanings every six months. At our dental practice, Alan S. Kuznick DMD, our expert dentist can provide you with a thorough dental exam to make sure that you are in excellent oral health. At our Lake Success dental office, we offer a wide variety of dental treatments in the areas of general, cosmetic, and implant dentistry.
In order to keep your gums healthy, you will want to keep your teeth free of all plaque and tartar. The best way to do this is with a great at-home dental cleaning regimen of proper tooth brushing and flossing. You will also want to visit our Lake Success dental office every six months so that you can have your teeth examined and so that you can have regular dental cleanings. If you do all of these things, you stand a great chance of keeping healthy gums as well as keeping your teeth cavity-free. During our dental checkup, our dentist will assess the health of your gums. If it is determined that you have gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, it will most likely be recommended that you have several dental cleanings over the coming months to help your gums return to excellent health. If our dentist sees that you have developed deep pockets between your teeth and gums, he probably will recommend that you have a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment so that your gums can become healthy again. It is very important to keep your gums healthy because gum disease is very serious; it can not only go on to cause tooth loss, but infection from gum disease can also travel to other parts of your body and cause serious health problems including heart issues.
