There is nothing either simpler or more effective than a visit to our office for a dental exam every six months. With the inclusion of a teeth cleaning for prevention, the minimal effort it takes to make a trip here to the dental practice of Rafael Mosery, DDS pays big dividends.
One of the key aspects of our Flatbush dental exam is to visually inspect your teeth and gums. Some potential problems are detectable by sight. Our dentist also checks to make sure that you don’t have any loose teeth, fillings, or restorations. X-rays are done periodically so that cavities are found before they can grow large enough to cause you a toothache, infection, or the risk of tooth loss. X-rays also can reveal signs of cysts or other concerns. If any cavities are present, they will be filled promptly. What about gum disease? The early stage is called gingivitis, and it is marked by redness and irritation. Fortunately, as part of our Flushing dental exam, you get a teeth cleaning done, which reverses the effects of gingivitis. That’s only one of the advantages. The other is that tartar buildup is eradicated. This hardened dental plaque cannot be removed with brushing and flossing at home, and that makes it all the more essential for it to be addressed at our office two times per year. Once you make it a habit, the cumulative effects lead to fewer cavities and less incidents of gum disease moving forward. And that more that your teeth stay intact and strong, the better the chances are that you will keep them for life. Likewise, your gums are the foundation on which your teeth rely. Keeping them pink and vibrant can only be a good thing.
