Advanced Dental Hygiene
Healthy gums are essential to enjoying a comfortable and beautiful smile.
Since your oral health can change throughout your lifetime, we evaluate every patient with the utmost attention to your current gum health and medical history, and we also provide radiographic evaluation.
Using this information, we devise a plan that fits your lifestyle and needs in order to maintain the best oral health possible.
Routine Dental Cleanings and Exams
Maintaining a routine dental care habit is one of the best ways to support healthy teeth and gums as well as your overall health!
When you schedule a dental exam and cleaning in our Ringwood, NJ dental office every six months, we have the opportunity to examine your teeth and gums, identifying any potential conditions so that we can treat them before they worsen.
A dental cleaning every six months is one of the best actions you can take to maintain a healthy smile. Even if you brush and floss regularly, your toothbrush cannot reach every area – especially those areas just beneath your gums, where bacteria often collect.
Our dental hygienists are gentle, yet thorough, and remove all tartar (also known as calculus) that collects between dental cleanings.
Pediatric Dental Cleanings
Your child’s smile is precious!
At Ringwood Family Dental, we take great care to ensure that your child enjoys excellent oral health as well as a positive experience in our dental office. We treat children of all ages! Our dental team is skilled at working with kids to educate them on how to take care of their teeth at home. If they need dental treatment, we make it a painless, educational experience that will keep them smiling.
Deep Periodontal Dental Cleanings
If you have had some changes to your medical history, take certain medications, or if it has been awhile since you visited the dentist for routine care, you probably have some catching up to do.
We can help! Periodontal disease puts your systemic health at risk, increasing your chance of heart disease and stroke, so addressing it as soon as possible is important.
Periodontal disease symptoms often start with tenderness and bleeding when you brush and floss your teeth. As it progresses, you may have bad breath, tooth mobility, and inflamed gum tissue. When left untreated, gum disease often leads to tooth loss and bone loss.
Our hygienists expertly remove tartar and infection-causing bacteria so your gums can heal. In some cases, we may apply a localized antibiotic treatment to assist with healing and prevent reinfection. Our hygienists provide gentle deep cleanings and educate our patients on how to help improve their home care.
Patients who suffer from periodontal disease are more susceptible to it in the future. We will create a hygiene schedule that allows you to stay on track. For some patients, this may mean dental cleanings 3 to 4 times per year. At each appointment, we will evaluate your gums and provide a customized dental cleaning so you can enjoy healthy gums and a beautiful smile!
