Preventive Dentistry and Hygiene
Regular dental visits are essential to make sure oral health problems, from tooth decay to oral cancer, are detected and treated in a timely manner. From thorough exams, cleanings, periodontal treatments and sealants, all of your hygiene needs can be met right here.
At the initial visit, Dr. Feldstein will do a thorough exam, which includes necessary X-rays and photographs. We have the latest digital technology which allows us to take 3-D as well as 2-D X-rays. This improves quality and minimizes radiation.
After this initial exam, a periodic exam is done along with the hygiene visit every six to twelve months.
Routine dental cleanings are important to maintaining good oral health. Professional cleaning by a hygienist, can remove mineralized plaque that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. It is recommended you go in for a cleaning every three to six months.
For those patients diagnosed with periodontal disease, additional services are available. These will be customized by the doctor and hygienist, to meet the individual needs of the patient. In more advanced cases, we have the option to work in conjunction with a periodontist.
