Did you know that tooth decay and gum disease are caused by plaque? This sticky film accumulates continuously inside your mouth and harbors the harmful bacteria responsible for tooth decay and gum disease. By brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages you can reduce the amount of plaque around your teeth and gums to protect yourself against dental decay and periodontal disease. While a good oral hygiene routine at home is essential for keeping your smile clean, it is not enough to eliminate plaque buildup from the tough to reach areas between your teeth and gums. To maintain optimal oral health, it’s also important to visit our office for a checkup and Norfolk teeth cleaning twice a year. In addition to thoroughly removing plaque, tartar and debris, we’ll also review your oral hygiene routine and offer guidance and suggestions for improvement. For pediatric patients, these visits help establish the foundation for a lifetime of healthy habits. We can also provide your child with dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which offer an added layer of protection against cavities. For patients of all ages, we examine the teeth, gums and their surrounding anatomy, using advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic examinations allow for the earliest possible detection and intervention of cavities, gum disease and other oral health problems.
When you bring your family in for Norfolk teeth cleaning and examinations, you can expect personalized care from our friendly professional team. At Konikoff Family Dentistry, your family’s oral health is our top priority. To learn more or to schedule a checkup, call today.
