Cohen’s Gentle Dental Recommends Bi-Annual Dental Exams in Fordham Heights, Bronx NY, and Washington Heights
At Cohen’s Gentle Dental serving patients in Fordham Heights, Bronx NY, and Washington Heights, our dentist Dr. Ofer Cohen provides both adult and child patients with the bi-annual dental examinations and cleanings recommended by the American Dental Association. Routine dental examinations are important for both children and adults in order to maintain good dental hygiene and oral health.
We Recommended Check Ups Even with Impeccable Oral Hygiene
Designed to supplement your daily brushing, flossing, and rinsing routine, bi-annual cleanings remove tartar and plaque buildup, which can create pockets between the teeth and gums where dangerous bacteria like to grow. This bacterial growth, if left untreated, can lead to painful gum disease, formally called gingivitis. During a routine cleaning, our dentist and his professional staff will gently remove excess plaque and tartar buildup, preventing bacterial growth between the gums and teeth.
In addition to cleaning and polishing teeth, routine checkups also allow our dentist to inspect your mouth, head, neck, jaw, throat, and glands for signs of other disease or potential health problems such as cavities, temporomandibular jaw disorder (TMJ), or potential signs of cancer. If cavities are found or other signs of concern, further consultation or tests might be recommended. Like most health issues, early detection and diagnosis is key to effective treatment. Regular dental examinations will ensure any developing health concerns you might have been discovered in early stages.
