If you are looking for an excellent dental practice where you will receive the very best care, you should visit us at our office, Steven Rubin. Our Bensonhurst dentist, Dr. Steven Rubin, can provide you with many different dental services, including comprehensive dental exams, to make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy and not being affected by dental plaque.
When you receive a dental exam from our Bensonhurst dentist, our dentist will make sure that you have excellent oral health. Not only will your teeth be checked for signs of cavities or unusual wear, but your gums will also be checked for signs of gum disease; your mouth will also be thoroughly screened for any signs of oral cancer, and your jaw will be examined to make sure you are not developing any problems from TMJ or teeth grinding. Dental plaque is a clear and colorless film which is constantly being created in your mouth. It is extremely sticky and will easily stick to your teeth and mouth. When dental plaque sticks to your teeth it will also gather along and underneath the gum; this can cause your gums to become inflamed and you will have gingivitis. If our dentist sees that you are developing gingivitis, he will probably recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to help your gums return to good health. When plaque stays on teeth for a certain amount of time it will turn into tartar. Tartar will adhere to your teeth, and can cause the development of deep pockets to form between the teeth and gums. If this occurs, tartar, plaque, bacteria and food debris will all gather in the deep pockets and infection will form. If our dentist sees that you have developed mild-to-moderate gum disease, he will most likely recommend that you have a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment at our office. This is like a deep cleaning for the gums which should help your gums to become healthy again.
