Preventative Dentistry Many people fear the dentist. Some people simply forget to fit dental visits into their schedule. But no matter your reasons for skipping out on dental visits, it’s important to understand why preventative dental care is so critical to your overall health and well-being.

What is Preventative Dentistry?

When it comes to dental care, prevention can simply mean seeing your Pomona, Stony Point NY dentist Michael Bleyzer, DDS every six months for regular cleanings. In addition to cleanings, your dentist can check your teeth to look for signs of trouble before they escalate into a problem that requires treatment. For example, you may be showing signs of teeth grinding, or a misaligned bite. Catching these problems early can mean less expensive, less invasive treatment options.

Why Regular Cleanings?

Brushing and flossing every day is very important for maintaining your dental health. But brushing and flossing alone cannot prevent plaque and tartar buildup. Your dentist has specially designed tools to remove plaque and tartar in order to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. You should see your Pomona, Stony Point dentist every six months to maintain a healthy, white smile.

What Else Does a Dentist Check For?

Sometimes, no matter how diligent we are about taking care of our teeth, decay may develop. In some cases, tooth pain tells us we have a cavity. In other cases, decay will develop without any pain. Your Pomona, Stony Point dentist Dr. Bleyzer will thoroughly evaluate the health of your teeth to look for signs of decay. If treated early, teeth can be restored easily and inexpensively.

If decay spreads to the root of the tooth, a root canal or even extraction may become necessary. In these cases, tooth restoration or replacement can become quite expensive and time-consuming. Preventative dentistry is the first step in keeping your teeth healthy and beautiful.

If you haven’t seen a dentist lately, make preventative dentistry a priority. Dr. Bleyzer of Pomona, Stony Point NY welcomes new patients for cleanings, exams, and treatment. Schedule your appointment today to protect your oral health.
