Have you been putting off getting your teeth cleaned and examined? It is not always everyone’s favorite activity, but it is necessary if you want to keep your teeth and mouth healthy, and also if you want to avoid more extensive dental work in the procedure. At our Jackson Heights dental office, The Gentle Dentist, Dr. Amit Sood and staff believe in the preventative philosophy of dentistry in which regular visits for cleanings and exams are the cornerstones.
Dental cleanings and examinations are the best way to avoid common dental issues such as tooth decay and gum disease. This is because we use special cleaning techniques to rid your mouth of the types of bacteria and food debris that can begin to eat away at your teeth’s enamel and inflame your gums. During dental prophylaxis, or simply professional dental cleanings, at our Jackson Heights dental office, Dr. Sood will use cleaning techniques such as root scaling and planing, debridement, and polishing to make sure that your teeth are sparklingly clean, and exceptionally healthy. It is your job to maintain this level of health until your next visit by carefully brushing and flossing your teeth each day, and monitoring your diet with your dental health in mind. Dr. Sood will also carefully examine your teeth during each visit in order to uncover any issues that may be developing. This can include the use of X-rays in order to get the most in-depth look at your teeth and the surrounding structures of your mouth, and also to keep detailed records of your dental health on file so that we can return to them in the future if necessary. We recommend that you visit our Jackson Heights dental office for cleanings and exams at least once a year.
