If you are interested in keeping your teeth and gums healthy you probably are sure to brush and floss your teeth twice a day. However, there is more that you need to do to make sure that you continue with great oral health. It is very important to have periodic oral exams to make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy and do not have any developing dental problems. If you are looking for an expert Jamaica NY dentist who will provide you with excellent dental care, you will be very happy with the service and care that you get at our practice, Albee Dental Care.
At Albee Dental Care our Director of Dental Services is Dr. Douglas Garczynski. Dr. Garczynski has put together a team of outstanding dental professionals and staff to provide excellent care to patients of all ages. At our dental practice our Jamaica NY dentist provides a wide array of services in the areas of preventive, implant, cosmetic, restorative and pediatric dentistry. One of the most important and basic services that we provide are oral exams. Our dentist will be able to tell you how often it is recommended that you come and see us for oral exams; it will depend on your age, your current dental situation, and possibly will even be affected by your current medical situation. Oral exams are not only important to make sure that you do not have any developing oral health problems; they can also save you money. For example, it is much less costly to take care of a filling in the earliest of stages rather than to need a root canal treatment to save an infected tooth.
Our Jamaica NY dentist will check for many different things during an oral exam. To begin with, x-rays will be taken to determine if there are any hidden cavities or dental problems that cannot be see with the naked eye. Then our dentist will fully examine your teeth to be sure that there are no visible dental problems occurring. Your gums will also be closely examined to make sure that you are not developing gum disease. If your gums are showing signs of gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, our dentist may recommend a few dental cleanings over the coming months. If it is determined that you have gum disease, our dentist may recommend a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment to deep clean your gums. During the oral exam your mouth will also be checked for signs of oral cancer. Your bite will also be checked to make sure that it is well-aligned.
