You may think that regular brushing and flossing are enough to keep your teeth beautiful and functional. As much as we wish that were true, dental hygiene requires more effort. The best thing you can do for your smile, other than brushing and flossing, is visiting your dentist every six months. When you visit us regularly for your River Edge teeth cleanings and dental exams, we will clean the hard-to-reach spots and remove the tartar buildup that simple brushing and flossing can't. Additionally, Dr. Martirossian will identify dental decay proactively. In other words, when we find dental decay early, we can save you from future discomfort. During every visit, your dentist will also examine your teeth to make sure your bite is still functional and comfortable. If you’d like to schedule a routine visit with your dental team at Marlen Elite Dental Wellness, give us a call at (201) 546-8512. Our goal is to keep your smile healthy, and we’d love to see you for a dental cleaning.
We recommend seeing your dentist at least every six months to sharpen your smile. Some of our patients, however, are more prone to tooth decay and gum disease, so we may recommend more frequent visits. Depending on your specific needs, we’ll let you know when you should see us next with easy reminders.
When you visit us for a dental cleaning, we take extra care to ensure that your dental hygiene is up to par. We use only the best tools and technology to provide a thorough and comfortable experience. We understand, though, if you experience anxiety when you visit the dentist. That’s why we offer a drug-free anxiety solution called NuCalm.
Every time you visit Marlen Elite Dental Wellness for a dental cleaning, we will also perform a dental exam. During your dental exam, we will identify decay in your teeth and your gums.
To examine your teeth, we use specific tools to determine the strength of your enamel on each tooth. This allows us to understand if you have any decay. When we look at your gums, on the other hand, we look for signs of inflammation. Inflammation alerts your dental team about the possible bacterial overgrowth. In addition to exams during each visit, our team will also take x-rays at least once a year. These x-rays will give us a deeper understanding of your smile and its movement, as well as give us insight into what's going in inside your teeth. With an x-ray, we’ll see any decay we missed upon visual examination. Additionally, the x-ray will show us the alignment and functionality of your smile, in case you need to make any changes.
Unfortunately, visiting your dentist every six months isn’t enough to keep your smile healthy and beautiful. You also have to keep a good oral hygiene routine at home. This includes brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing your teeth daily.
Next, you’ll want to take extra care of your teeth when you eat any sugary or chewy foods. These types of food stick to your teeth, especially in small cracks and crevices. When sugary and glutenous foods become stuck in your smile, those areas will decay more quickly. Finally, you should make sure that you’re brushing and flossing correctly. For example, brushing for two minutes at a time kills more bacteria than a quick 30-second activity. When you floss, make sure that you’re flossing both sides of each tooth by sliding your floss up and down the sides of your teeth and pulling up from under the gum line. If you have a good oral hygiene routine yet your smile doesn’t stay perfect, we’re happy to share oral hygiene tips. When you visit us for a regular dental cleaning, ask us about keeping your smile healthy at home.
If you're ready for your dental exams and teeth cleaning River Edge hygienists and dentists at Marlen Elite Dental Wellness, can help you with this essential oral hygiene step and get you set up for your regular visits as well.
