Our Hackensack dentist is dedicated to your healthy smile and in addition to explaining all the successful preventative dentistry procedures available, will also go over the best ways for you to continue preventing cavities and gum disease at home. Our well-educated staff encourages and teaches proper oral health practices, as well as the important dental care that keeps your gums and teeth as healthy as possible. Some excellent habits to keep up with are proper brushing, flossing and even the use of rinses and mouthwashes, before and after brushing. Of course, there are certain preventative dentistry procedures that can be performed by our Hackensack dentist, but the best care starts at home with a good daily routine.
Before performing a comprehensive exam to see the state of your general oral health, our dentist will sit with you for a thorough consultation. To make sure the best dental and general health is being practiced our Hackensack dentist will do a complete oral check of your entire mouth including jaw joints, neck lymph nodes, lips, tongue, and palate. We will then have the information and results needed to properly advise you on the type of dental care you need to avoid any potential problems.
Our Hackensack dentist knows that along with healthy teeth and gums, comes better self-confidence, and a healthy mouth forms a strong basis for overall health and well-being. We offer many preventative dentistry therapies, including preventative care appointments with our well-trained dental hygienist. To make your teeth and gums feel great and look terrific, a polish and deep cleaning done. Depending on the present state of your teeth and gums, our dental hygienist will talk to you about the best cleaning methods and dental hygiene products appropriate for you. Another good example of dental care to prevent gum disease is a dental sealant. A dental sealant can easily be placed, which is a layer of protective, durable, special plastic, on your back teeth to prevent decay. Fluoride treatments are another good preventative procedure that can make your teeth much more resistant to tooth decay plus fluoride can be found in most toothpastes.
