In the 21st century, dentistry has evolved into a science that maintains function, form, health, and a beautiful smile for a lifetime. But sometimes all you need is dentistry in its most fundamental form to maintain your oral hygiene. For example, by attending comprehensive dental exams at Tiba Dental, our Bay Ridge dentist can help catch problems concerning your teeth and gums earlier than ever, potentially saving you time and money.
We know that many people may feel anxious about coming to the dentist, so it is our goal to make your visit with us as pain and anxiety free as possible. Our dental hygiene program is designed to help prevent new cavities, preserve teeth that have been restored, and manage periodontal (gum) disease. However, we will do much more than merely clean your teeth and gums during your teeth cleaning. Our Bay Ridge dentists will perform a complete oral examination which includes an oral cancer screening, periodontal evaluation, and an analysis of your occlusion (bite). This ensures a thorough examination of your teeth, their supporting structures, and of the oral anatomy. Furthermore, routine teeth cleanings are an incredibly effective method in preventing future dental problems, such as gum disease. There are many different varieties of periodontal disease, and many ways in which these variations manifest themselves. Gingivitis is among the most common. However, all forms of gum disease require immediate treatment to halt the progression and save the gum tissue and bone. Natural teeth, teeth with restorations, and the gum tissue that surrounds these teeth survive best in an oral environment that is clean and where proper oral hygiene is maintained.
