Teeth Cleaning in Paterson

If you want to make sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy, you will need to have a great at-home teeth cleaning regimen, and come into our dental office every six months for a dental exam and for a teeth cleaning in Paterson.

At our dental practice, Anna J. Huh, D.M.D., you will be seen by our expert dentist, Dr. Anna J. Huh. She will be able to provide you with a dental exam every six months. During this time, the health of your teeth, gums, and entire mouth will be thoroughly assessed. When your gums are examined, she will determine whether or not you have gingivitis, or any gum disease. If it is found that you have gingivitis, our dentist will recommend that you have a teeth cleaning in Paterson several times over the coming months in order for your gums to heal. When teeth and gums are found to be healthy, it is generally recommended that you have a teeth cleaning in Paterson every six months. During this type of teeth cleaning, all plaque, tartar, and food debris is removed from the surface of your teeth, from between the teeth, and from just below the gum line. This teeth cleaning will not only help to prevent dental cavities, but it will also help to prevent gingivitis. A patient has gingivitis when their gums are swollen and inflamed, it is a common precursor to gum disease. Gingivitis is usually caused by poor oral hygiene, but can also be caused by certain medical conditions or by certain medications you are taking. If our dentist finds that deep pockets have developed between the teeth and gums, you will need to have a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment to get your gums to return to good health, or dental surgery may even be needed. When it comes to dental and gum health, an ounce of prevention is certainly worth a pound of cure.
