When it comes to keeping your teeth plaque-free and avoiding dental decay, routine at-home oral care and biannual checkups and cleanings from your West Orange dentist are both of supreme importance. Dental decay and gum disease are the two most common conditions affecting dental health; but when you take the right steps and have a trusted dentist to rely on, they’re also the most preventable. Here at the office of Eden B. Vincent, DMD we place an emphasis on detecting and treating oral health problems early on, preventing small problems from turning into big ones.
Combating plaque is the single most effective way to prevent cavities from forming. Dental plaque harbors colonies of enamel-eroding bacteria; when that plaque is not adequately removed on a consistent basis, cavities will begin to develop. When you visit Dr. Vincent for a checkup, our dental team can employ the most advanced dental technology and techniques to prevent and detect tooth decay in its earliest stages, giving you the best chance to avoid more time in the dentist’s chair. At every checkup with your West Orange dentist, our team will carefully evaluate your teeth, gums, and jaw for any sign of dental disease or developing problems. Every exam is accompanied by a thorough, professional teeth cleaning to remove any accumulated dental plaque or tartar, and to reach the crevices between your teeth that brushing and flossing alone can’t reach. Even if you do develop a cavity, your tooth can be restored to full function. We offer the finest quality restorations for repairing injured, damaged, or decayed teeth.
