Preventive Care

In order to maintain healthy teeth, it is vital to remove plaque and tarter on a regular basis. During your visit, Dr. Buchwald and his team will perform an oral cancer screening exam, check your teeth for cavities, review oral hygiene instructions, and monitor your periodontal (gum) condition. Fluoride treatments are provided only in extremely circumstances or at the patient's request. Good oral hygiene and in-between cleanings by a dental hygienist are essential to prevent cavities, tartar build-up, and gum disease. We'll periodically take X-Rays of your teeth to help provide an accurate diagnosis of your dental needs.

Regular teeth cleaning (Prophylaxis) by a dental hygienist is recommended to remove tartar that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult for a patient to reach on his own at home. Professional cleaning includes tooth scaling and tooth polishing, and debridement if too much tartar has accumulated. This involves the use of various instruments or devices to loosen and remove deposits from the teeth.
