Importance of Professional Dental Cleanings
How often should I visit the dentist? That is a question we often hear from our patients. Generally, the dentist will recommend bi-annual visits to the dentist (every six months). If you have tooth decay, gum disease or other dental health concerns, the dentist may suggest more frequent visits to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums.
DIAGNOdent – Dental Cavity Detection
At our Pennington dentist office, we take a proactive approach to try and stop problems before they occur. One piece of technology that helps us prevent dental cavities is the DIAGNOdent, a pen-like device that can detect early tooth decay. With this tool, our dentists are able to intercept tooth decay before it progresses.
