Preventive dental care is the key to having healthy teeth and gums. At our dental practice, Dr. Peter Blauzvern, DDS, PC, we provide excellent preventive dental care in the form of dental exams by our Muttontown dentist
, dental cleanings, and preventive dental therapies.
If you want to make sure that your teeth and gums remain healthy, you will want to make sure that all dental plaque and tartar is removed from teeth. It is important to have an effective at-home teeth cleaning regimen of tooth brushing and flossing. However, it is also important to come into our dental practice every six months to have a professional dental cleaning. During this cleaning, all dental plaque and tartar will be removed from teeth, and from just below the gum line. This will keep dental cavities at bay, and will also help keep you from developing gum disease. Our Muttontown dentist
will provide you with a dental exam which will examine all aspects of your oral health. Your mouth will be thoroughly screened for any signs of oral cancer. And, your teeth will be checked to make sure there are no problems developing with cavities or existing fillings. Your gums will be assessed to make sure they are remaining healthy. If it is found that your gums are inflamed, our dentist will most likely recommend that you have several dental cleanings over the coming months to get your gums return to good health. This inflammation is most likely caused by dental plaque. Dental cleanings will remove dental plaque from your teeth which can also lead to dental cavities. At our dental practice, we also offer several different types of preventive dental treatments including fluoride treatments and dental sealants. Fluoride treatments help to strengthen tooth enamel, and thus help prevent cavities. Dental sealants are used to protect the flat chewing surfaces of a child’s premolars and molars.
