Preventive Dental Care Can Ensure Healthy and Long-Lasting Smiles

Preventive dental care at our Staten Island, NY, practice can provide lasting, healthy smiles, and help prevent issues that may require costly restorative dental care. While daily brushing and flossing are at the heart of preventive dentistry, a good oral hygiene regimen that includes visiting your dentist for a dental checkup and professional cleaning every six months is also extremely important. This not only prevents tooth decay and gum disease, but can also reduce your risk of developing other serious health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. Dr. Joseph T. Mormino can provide comprehensive dental treatment using advanced tools and techniques during your routine exam.

Why Preventive Dental Care is Important

A toothbrush, floss, and mouthwashEvidence suggests a direct correlation between the health of your mouth and your body exists. When you properly care for your teeth and gums, you are not only helping to prevent cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease, but you are reducing your risk of developing other serious health conditions. If dental decay and gum disease are left untreated, they can lead to diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and cancer. Practicing healthy oral hygiene and visiting your dentist biannually can also help you avoid costly restorative dental procedures, such as dental crowns, extractions, and dental implants.

Practicing healthy oral hygiene and visiting your dentist biannually can help you avoid costly restorative dental procedures.

Preventive dental care is also vitally important for children. Children who practice good oral hygiene habits are much more likely to continue healthy habits as an adult, increasing their chances of preserving their natural teeth much longer. Familiarity with the dentist at a young age can also help prevent dental anxiety and phobia from developing.

What to Expect During a Routine Checkup

During your routine checkup, one of our hygienists will take x-rays of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. Our advanced digital x-rays and intraoral camera technology can detect any cavities, fractures, or other abnormalities. Once the images have been captured, the hygienist will use a dental instrument to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums.

Once completed, the hygienist will perform a professional cleaning to remove minor dental stains. Depending on your unique needs, fluoride treatment and dental sealants may be recommended to help prevent plaque buildup and cavities. Because improper hygiene can cause significant damage, your hygienist may also provide a demonstration on the proper way to brush and floss your teeth.

After your cleaning, Dr. Mormino will perform a detailed examination of your teeth and gums and review the x-rays and images for any signs of decay or disease. If a cavity or periodontal disease is identified, Dr. Mormino can provide a tooth-colored filling or periodontal care to help you maintain your oral health. He will also take the time to address any questions or concerns you may have about the exam.
