At 23rd Street Dental Associates, we use the most advanced technology and methods of care to prevent, detect and treat adverse oral health conditions. We recommend scheduling periodic visits to our 10010 dental office, so that we can keep your teeth and gums healthy from the start. Our preventive program includes teeth cleanings, comprehensive examinations and oral cancer screenings, all geared towards helping you and your family members maintain a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles.
Since the most common oral health issues result from plaque buildup, good oral hygiene practices play a critical role in the prevention of dental disease. Dental plaque is the sticky film which accumulates over the teeth, home to colonies of harmful bacteria that feed on sugars in our diet. In order to protect your teeth from plaque, daily brushing and flossing is key, as well as limiting your intake of sugary foods and scheduling routine checkups at our 10010 dental office every six months. When you visit us for your checkup, our dentist will carefully examine the health of your teeth, gums, and jaws. This enables us to monitor your oral health throughout the year, so that any issues can be detected and addressed early on, when treatment is easiest. It also gives us the chance to assess your oral care regimen at home. We provide encouraging instruction in the proper methods for brushing and flossing, and take care to provide specialized instructions if you have had extensive dental work done. To further complement your oral care regimen at home, we perform a professional teeth cleaning as part of your checkup to expertly remove plaque from hard to reach areas of the mouth.
When it comes to your oral health, our 10010 dental office aims to prevent the onset of dental conditions altogether. For the gentle and skilled preventive dental care you and your loved ones deserve, plan on scheduling your next checkup with us, at 23rd Street Dental Associates today!
