Preventive dental care is an important part of anyone’s healthcare regimen. At the offices of Paul Roberts, DDS, we provide preventive care and general and restorative dentistry at our Larchmont dental office for patients who are looking for wonderful and affordable dental care. Preventive care encompasses a wide range of dental service and care, from regular cleanings to treatment for gum disease.
Our experience with treating gum disease allows us to properly diagnose and treat this common condition. Mild gum conditions like gingivitis can affect teeth and become worse over time, inflaming the pockets of the teeth and gum around it. Symptoms include swelling, bleeding and soreness. Good brushing and flossing habits can help rid the mouth of gum diseases like gingivitis. Annual dental cleanings at our Larchmont dental office allow us to get into the spaces as well where regular brushing and flossing alone cannot, using certain tools that get inside the pockets to remove the dental plaque. With proper treatment, gum disease can be reversed to a healthier state. Besides gum disease we also treat patients for abscesses, cavities and perform root canals. Removing teeth and performing root canals are also common for preventive care and to prevent the mouth from being more prone to problems that can create future expensive dental bills.
Preventive care is an important part of everyone’s dental regimen and involves good dental hygiene also. Our Larchmont dental office can educate you on how to keep your teeth clean with annual cleanings and by using the right preventive care methods so that your teeth and mouth stay clean and healthy. Dental health is a lifelong practice that patients should get into the habit of so that they can enjoy long lasting teeth and to be free of cavities and gum disease.
