Preventative Dental Care Forest Hills, NY

Make sure the weekends remain great by preventing dental infection with the proper care.

Preventative Dental Care

When it comes to preventative dental care, it is crucial to schedule regular dental checkups at least twice per year. With regular dental checkups, we can help you maintain your oral health. Brushing twice a day and flossing once a day will help prevent plaque from forming but won't help reach every area of the mouth.

During an examination and cleaning of your teeth in our dental office, we will check each tooth for any signs of plaque buildup or decay. If we find any early signs of possible conditions or issues, we will eliminate them or schedule another appointment for treatment.

Even though you may not notice any warning signs or issues in your mouth, many conditions will gradually build over time and remain almost undetected in the early stages. With a professional examination, we can identify these signs and treat them before symptoms occur.

If you notice any pain or sensitivity in your teeth, call us right away. Even if you have received a dental checkup in the last six months, issues can still occur. Our team is here to help, so don't hesitate to seek treatment.

Preventative dental care is all about a proactive approach to oral health. While we can provide treatment when you seek it, you still need to keep your teeth healthy at home. Along with brushing and flossing, mouthwash rinse can also kill germs and provide a fresh feeling in the mouth. We can recommend a mouthwash that will work for your needs during an appointment.
