Whatever type of dental care you need, you can receive it from experts at Cosmetic Dental Associates. However, the best way to minimize your need for dental care is to visit our dentist in 08901 for periodic dental exams, and to have teeth cleanings at our office every six months.
When you come to our dental practice for your dental exam, you will be seen by our general dentist in 08901. Just one of our general dentists is Dr. Zaki Sadiq. Our dentist will assess the health of your mouth and make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy. In order to keep your teeth and gums healthy and cavity-free, we recommend that you also have a teeth cleaning at our office every six months. Many of our patients like to schedule their teeth cleanings on the same day as their dental exam for their convenience. During a teeth cleaning, all plaque, tartar, and harmful materials will be removed from the surface of your teeth, from between your teeth, and from just below the gum line. This will help to keep your teeth cavity-free as cavities are caused by tooth acids which are formed when dental plaque mixes with other materials in your mouth. When plaque stays on your teeth, it will turn into tartar. Tartar is a hard, mineralized substance which tightly adheres to teeth, and can only be removed with dental cleaning instruments. When tartar stays on your teeth, it will encourage deep pockets to develop between your teeth and gums. This is the beginning of gum disease. Tartar, plaque, food debris and other materials will gather in these deep pockets and infection will form. The gums will become infected and irritated, and this irritation and infection will travel down to your jawbone if it is left untreated. When this happens, teeth will begin to loosen and can even fall out. The best way to keep your teeth and gums healthy is by maintaining excellent oral health.
