Biannual dental visits are important because they are an absolutely vital complement to your at-home oral hygiene in the battle against tooth decay and gum disease. One trip per six months to us at Hoeg Dental Group will significantly reduce the chances of you having cavities, red and irritable gums, and infections. And because of that, procedures such as root canal, gum surgery, and tooth extractions will also be a lot less likely.
Our teeth cleaning Wading River eliminates the plaque and tartar that are between your teeth and at the gum line. You might think that you took care of all that by brushing your teeth when you wake up, and then brushing them again along with a thorough flossing before bed. Well, you certainly make a lot of headway by doing so. The complication comes up in that some plaque often manages to hide in gum pockets, out of reach of your toothbrush and dental floss. Hardened tartar follows, and that is nearly impossible to eradicate at home. You need our teeth cleaning Wading River for that. The reason we recommend that you come in every six months is that in that time, there is far less chance for plaque and tartar to cause serious problems. Even if you show indications of gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease, when you come in, it is generally stopped and its effects reversed with a cleaning. And because later stage gum disease, periodontitis, is associated with receding gums, bleeding when you brush, and persistent bad breath, among other alarming signs, it’s a major advantage to come in now and not put off your visit.
