Proper dental hygiene is much more than a matter of cleanliness and fresh breath, it is vital to the health and longevity of your natural smile. Patients in adulthood should be brushing and flossing twice a day as directed, but effective dental prophylaxis does not stop there. In order to prevent the destructive and dangerous disease of the mouth, adults needs to be receiving comprehensive dental cleanings and examinations twice a year from their local West New York dentist at the offices of Michael B. Schwarz, DMD. Only a licensed professional can give you the dental care you need for a beautiful smile that will last for a lifetime.
No matter what you may see in commercial on your television set, your at-home spin brush simply cannot deliver the same level of cleanliness and personalized care of a fully licensed dental hygienist at your local West New York dentist. Only a trained professional can utilize the unique set of tools which our dental hygienists use to properly clean your teeth. A comprehensive dental cleaning removes hardened plaque and tartar that can form after only 48 hours of not cleaning your teeth. These stubborn layers of buildup simply will not come off with a spin brush alone; they require a dental hygienist to remove. The advanced technology utilized by the offices of Michael Schwarz, DMD can also work to remove dangerous levels of bacteria which can breed infection and tooth decay if not properly treated by a professional and comprehensive cleaning.
Gingivitis is a common dental disease which many of us deal with on a daily basis. If you experience bloody gums, or notice yourself spitting blood after you brush your teeth, you are most likely experiencing symptoms of gingivitis. On its own, this initial stage of gum disease is not harmful, but if left untreated gingivitis can develop into a destructive case of periodontitis. This stage of gum disease will eat away at your gum line in time, and in advanced stages can be responsible for gum, tooth, and even bone loss of your jaw. The best way to treat periodontitis is to prevent it happening entirely with regular dental cleanings from your local West New York dentist.
At the offices of Michael B. Schwarz, DMD our dental cleanings are always accompanied by a thorough dental examination to assess the health of your smile. These examinations can catch gingivitis and periodontitis in its earliest stages and prevent gum disease from causing harm to your beautiful smile. Our local West New York dentist office is conveniently located for your ease, making it that much simpler for you to come in for regular dental cleanings and examinations. At Michael B. Schwarz, DMD our welcoming and knowledgeable staff will work with you to treat periodontitis and preserve your smile.
