Hi, I’m cosmetic dentist Dr. Frederick Hecht of Staten Island Dental Care. If you are one of my existing patients, welcome back. If this is your first visit, I appreciate you stopping by.
My comfortable team and I love taking care of our Staten Island area patients.
Today’s article is for Staten Island area people who are overdue for a general dentistry cleaning and exam.
During dental deep cleanings, our hygienists thoroughly remove the plaque and tartar above and below the gumline. By scaling and planing, they remove areas where bacteria can easily multiply. If you are due for a cleaning, call us today at 718-761-5757 to schedule.
After your teeth have been cleaned, I perform a thorough examination. I check for overall tooth and gum health, the presence of cavities, gum pocket depth, bite issues, and signs of oral cancer.
Some Staten Island people mistakenly believe that they can skip family dentistry visits if they don’t notice anything out of the ordinary. This attitude is risky. Many dental problems advance silently. When the patient experiences pain, much damage has been done. Periodontal disease, especially, often progresses unnoticed.
If you don’t have dental insurance, ask us about dental financing options. It costs far less to prevent problems than to treat them after they have become severe.
If you perform regular auto maintenance, you understand the wisdom of prevention. Don’t you value your smile far more than your car? Call Staten Island Dental Care today to schedule preventative maintenance for your irreplaceable smile.
