All dentists will agree that having regularly scheduled dental checkups and cleanings are of prime importance in making sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy. It is very important to keep a great at home dental cleaning regimen, but regular brushing and flossing alone unfortunately cannot guarantee excellent dental health. If it has been a while since you had a professional teeth cleaning, you will help ensure your good dental health by having a professional teeth cleaning in Stamford at Middlesex Dental Group.
At Middlesex Dental Group we have three top dentists on our staff. Our general dentists are Dr. Paul Gallo and Dr. Joseph Miceli. Dr. Charles Silk is our prosthodontist who specializes in cosmetic dentistry, implants, crowns and dentures. Whether you need professional teeth cleaning in Stamford, or need to replace missing teeth, you will do well to visit us at Middlesex Dental Group. Even with the most rigorous at home dental cleaning plans, you will not be able to remove all plaque and bacteria from teeth. And in a very short time, dental plaque that is not removed will harden into tartar. Tartar is a mineralized substance that causes gum disease. Tartar cannot be removed by regular brushing; removal calls for the use of professional dental cleaning instruments.
In order to prevent gum disease, you will need to practice excellent dental hygiene – and this includes regular professional teeth cleaning in Stamford. During a dental checkup our dentist will be able to let you know if you are having any problems with gingivitis or gum disease. If so, he will give you advice as to what should be done next. If you have gingivitis, you may well only need professional teeth cleanings performed several times over the next couple of months to restore your gums to good health. If deep pockets have begun to form in your mouth between your teeth and gums, more advanced periodontal treatments may be needed. With today’s modern technology dental procedures are very comfortably performed in our office, so there is no need for concern regarding your comfort during treatment. What is important though, is that proper treatment does occur; advanced gum disease can cause teeth to loosen and fall out. However, tooth loss can almost always be prevented. For an appointment for a dental checkup or cleaning, we hope you will contact us today at Middlesex Dental Group.
