At Kramer and Kramer, we focus on a preventive approach to dental care, to keep your teeth healthy and your smile beautiful throughout your life. With state-of-the-art technology and routine checkups, our highly skilled 10461 dentist can prevent, detect and treat tooth decay. While dental decay is a common oral health problem, with quality preventive care, our dentist can help keep your teeth cavity free from the start.
Preventing tooth decay begins at home, with a daily routine of brushing and flossing. A diligent oral hygiene regimen helps to manage the accumulation of plaque, a sticky film that continuously gathers in the mouth, harboring bacteria that feed on sugar. Plaque bacteria produce acids that erode tooth enamel, causing cavities to form. In addition to your at-home oral hygiene routine, it’s important to visit your 10461 dentist at Kramer and Kramer Dental for preventive checkups twice a year. As part of your checkup visit, we’ll clean any plaque and tartar from difficult to reach spots that your toothbrush may have missed. We’ll also perform a comprehensive examination to diagnose tooth decay and any other conditions, which may affect your oral health. Although cavities can occur at any age, due to lifestyle and dietary habits, children are especially susceptible. To prevent cavities in children, we recommend fluoride treatments and dental sealants, which provide extra protection to keep your child’s teeth healthy. If any cavities are detected, our dentist will gently and precisely remove the decayed matter from the tooth, and then place a suitable restoration. Your new dental filling will be durable enough to withstand the force of your bite, and will restore the appearance and function of the treated tooth. A tooth colored composite resin filling will blend seamlessly with natural tooth structure for the most cosmetically pleasing results.
Your compassionate 10461 dentist and professional staff keep you comfortable, informed and relaxed each time you come in for a visit. At Kramer and Kramer, we help you maintain a lifetime of optimal oral health. To learn more, call today.
