Gum disease afflicts thousands of Americans each year, which is why an important part of daily oral care is maintaining a healthy mouth as well as a proper teeth cleaning and brushing. At the offices of Ella Kerzhner DMD, our Westampton family dentist provides a clean and safe environment for all your family’s dental needs and a thorough and comprehensive oral exam as needed.
Each individual exam includes a periodontal evaluation to check gum health, an oral cancer screening, a bite occlusion analysis, as well as a check of the supporting structures of the teeth and oral anatomy. Proper oral hygiene and regular cleanings can stop bacteria from forming on the teeth that regular brushing alone cannot remove. A teeth cleaning procedure will help dislodge debris and other food particles that can get trapped in between teeth and gums, creating bacteria that can cause cavities and gingivitis. Our Westampton family dentist also educates all our patients about dental hygiene and in preventing new cavities to help prevent any future oral health problems. If periodontal disease is present, we first treat it and then give patients oral hygiene instructions to take home.
Maintaining healthy gums starts with proper brushing and flossing. Brushing at least twice a day, flossing and having annual cleanings is the best way to remove food that can cause bacteria. Bacteria causes plaque and buildup on the teeth. The bacteria eats away at tooth enamel, which can create cavities and gum disease. We also provide state of the art dental exams and equipment along with cosmetic and restorative dentistry, implants, crowns and porcelain veneers. We also provide our patients the best in professional teeth whitening. We believe in educating our patients about oral health is one of the best ways to help them have healthy, clean teeth for many years to come.
