The beginnings of dental health are always with you. A regular strategy of brushing, flossing, and dental rinsing combined with a diet that accentuates nutritious foods and limits sugary snacks and drinks is a fantastic foundation for preventing your teeth and gums from the ravages of tooth decay and gum disease. As important as your choices and habits are to achieving positive results, some plaque and tartar along with food particles and the resulting harmful bacteria can still find their way onto and in between your teeth as well as between your teeth and gums. The only way to eliminate those enemies to dental health and restore your mouth to its optimal state is to come in twice yearly for a complete cleaning at our Ridgefield dental office.

If plaque and the other bad guys are allowed to progress without the benefit of a good dental cleaning, tooth decay and gum disease are almost certain to follow. At our Ridgefield dental office, your cleaning will ensure that all of the unwanted elements are eliminated. The benefits are undeniable. You will stop tooth decay and gum disease in their tracks, preventing cavities and maybe even the need for root canal therapy down the road.

When it comes to your children, the need for dental cleanings is no less important. Losing primary teeth too early can cause problems for your child later, so stopping tooth decay is vital. Along with fluoride treatments, which can be very helpful, pediatric dental cleanings will give your daughter or son the best chance to keep their primary teeth healthy and strong until they fall out on the schedule they naturally should. Our Ridgefield dental office provides a welcoming and friendly environment for your child. He or she will feel comfortable and will be treated with the utmost patience and dedicated care.

Dental decay is one of the most common dental issues. Our Ridgefield general dentist, Dr. Michael B. Schwartz, sees dental decay and cavities in his patients all the time. At our practice, we like to inform our patients about some of these common issues so that they can take preventative measures against them, and also be aware of any current symptoms that they might be experiencing and should seek treatment for at our office.

The two main causes of tooth decay and cavities are bacteria and food debris that are not properly removed through brushing and flossing. Certain kinds of bacteria found in the sticky substance that forms on your teeth if you do not brush them, called plaque, release an acid that eats away at your teeth’s enamel, forming the small holes of decay called cavities. Eating an especially sugary or starchy diet can increase the stickiness of the plaque, and therefore increase your risk for decay and cavities. Therefore, the best way to prevent cavities and decay is to firstly take good care of your teeth at home. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day is one of the most important parts of a good oral hygiene regimen. When you brush your teeth, our Ridgefield general dentist recommends that you use a soft-bristled toothbrush and angle your brush toward your gums. Then brush in a gentle, circular motion, and attending to each tooth carefully.

Flossing your teeth is another important part of removing bacteria buildup and food debris. Our Ridgefield general dentist may also recommend that you use an oral rinse as part of your hygiene regimen. If you do develop a cavity, certain symptoms are likely to present themselves as it begins to form. You may notice toothache in one particular tooth, tooth sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks, or even visible holes in the tooth. If you have any of these symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with Dr. Schwartz for an evaluation of your symptoms and treatment as needed.
