Gramercy Park Dental Exams
At the office of Dr. Harvey Katz DDS, we're focused on prevention as the most effective method of promoting good dental health. Our Gramercy Park dental exams
are a big part of an overall strategy for keeping tooth decay and gum disease from causing damage. Of course, it all starts with you. The diet you eat, the amount of sugar you consume in the form of foods and beverages, and your commitment to regular brushing and flossing set the stage for keeping your teeth and gums healthy and strong.
Dental checkups every six months ensure that if tooth decay results in any cavities forming, no matter how small, they will be found and filled promptly before they can progress and grow larger. The bigger a cavity is, the more likely it is to lead to a root canal infection or a tooth that has decayed to the point where it is not savable, resulting in its removal. Gum disease that is caught early can usually be reversed with a dental cleaning (more on that later), but if ignored can move to an advanced stage and require more severe treatments. It can also cause the loss of gum tissue, bone tissue, and even teeth. With a visual and physical inspection of your teeth along with x-rays, our Gramercy Park dental exams
can detect even the smallest of cavities and address gum disease before it can cause more challenging issues.
With a professional dental cleaning, your teeth and gums will be relieved of the plaque and it's hardened version, tartar, that are at the foundation of oral problems such as cavities and gum disease. You see, no matter how diligent you are with your at-home dental hygiene regimen, there are some things that your brush and floss simply cannot reach. This includes food particles. But our Gramercy Park dental exams
will let you leave feeling refreshed and rightly so. Getting a dental cleaning is like hitting the reset button on your dental well-being.
Everyone should have a dental checkup every six months. If yours is due- or overdue, why not call us right now and schedule yours? Our Gramercy Park dental exams
help keep your teeth looking good and feeling good.
