North Brunswick dentist
Did you know that tooth decay and gum disease are caused by plaque. This sticky film gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring bacteria that feed off of the sugars in your diet. As the bacteria digest the sugars, they produce acids that eat away at tooth enamel, forming cavities and irritate the tissues supporting the teeth, causing gum disease. While brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods helps to protect your teeth and gums against the effects of plaque buildup, it’s also important to visit our North Brunswick dentist
for a biannual teeth cleaning and exam, to complement your daily oral hygiene regimen. As part of our comprehensive program of preventive care we thoroughly remove any residual plaque buildup, tartar and food debris from difficult to reach areas you may have missed while brushing, and offer techniques to help you better clean and care for your teeth and gums at home. As an added level of protection against tooth decay for our pediatric patients, we recommend dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Preventive care for patients of all ages also includes a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums and the surrounding tissues, assisted by advanced digital radiography, as needed. With the help of KaVo DIAGNOdent® technology, we can detect even the smallest cavities, which traditional diagnostic instruments might miss.
At Hidden Lakes Dental Associates, we utilize leading-edge approaches to halt the onset and progress of conditions that may adversely affect your oral health. Every checkup with our North Brunswick dentist
is a comfortable, engaging, and educational experience. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
