Did you know that tooth decay and gum disease are caused by a sticky film called plaque, that harbors bacteria that are harmful to your smile? As the bacteria metabolize the sugars in your diet, they produce by-products that eat away at tooth enamel, causing cavities to form. Furthermore, when plaque is allowed to gather below the gums, it infects and inflames the tissues supporting the teeth, leading to periodontal disease. While brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugar, are important steps that you can take each day to combat the detrimental effects of plaque, it’s also important to visit our Rocky Hill dentist office twice a year for an examination and teeth cleaning. In this way, we can diagnose oral health problems from their outset, when they’re typically the easiest to treat, and eliminate any residual buildup of plaque. During your teeth cleaning, we’ll thoroughly remove any plaque buildup, tartar and debris from difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums, and we’ll review your home care routine to help you improve your brushing and flossing. For pediatric patients, we recommend dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which offer an added layer of protection against cavities. For patients of all ages, our dentist will perform an examination of the teeth, gums and their surrounding anatomy, which allows for the earliest possible detection and intervention of conditions that may adversely affect your oral health.
Keeping up with preventive checkups is easy when you can depend on the personalized, state-of-the-art care of our Rocky Hill dental office. At Rocky Hill Dental, our goal is to help you family maintain excellent oral health throughout your lives. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
