Do you usually wake up and start your morning with your regular dental regimen? Brushing, flossing, even swishing and gargling some minty mouthwash—but noticed how sensitive your gums were afterward? Even a little bleeding when you flossed between each tooth. How long has it been since you’ve visited your dentist in Westchester County? Practicing excellent dental hygiene at home is a great start to maintaining good dental health, but regular dental visits are just as important. Pelham Family Dental Arts offers a wide variety of preventive dental services to not only help our patients achieve their optimal level of oral health but maintain it for years to come.
Visiting Your Dentist is Important!
Did you know that advanced gum disease is the primary cause of tooth loss for American adults? Oral cancer causes more than 7,500 deaths each year! If you visited your dentist every six months (at least) these diseases could have been noticed and treated early. Both diseases have high retention rates when addressed early on, but in most cases people avoid or cancel their dental appointments. By keeping an eye out for trouble semiannually, either Dr. Vaiman or Dr. Kessler can often reduce your potential for large dental problems.
Dental Checkups and Cleanings
Pelham Dental Arts works individually with patients to develop customized dental plans that will help patients reach their best oral health within their budgets. A major part of our dental treatment plans includes meeting with your Westchester dentist at least semiannually. This is the recommended standard of care that was set by the American Dental Association. Even from the growth of your child’s first tooth, patients should start visiting our dental practice two times a year. When you visit our comprehensive office you can expect:
A Thorough Examination
Our dentists examine every detail about each patient’s mouth looking for signs of oral health issues. We spot health issues like decay, gum disease, TMJ dysfunction, teeth grinding, and oral cancer in its early stages and start the best treatment to get your oral health back on track. We also use advanced dental technology like digital x-rays to give both us and our patients a more in-depth look at their oral health.
A Professional Cleaning
Our hygienists and dentists will systematically remove plaque and bacteria from hard to reach spots in your mouth. Even with an immaculate oral health routine at home, it is important to have your dentist professionally clean the areas that are hard to reach and remove any hardened plaque to avoid gum disease.
A Custom Treatment Plan
Our dentists will take the time to discuss the results of their dental checkup with them. Dr. Vaiman or Dr. Kessler can answer any questions you may have and develop a plan for further treatment if needed. We work hand in hand with patients to help them choose the treatments that work for best for them and their lifestyles.
