If you want to make sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy, and you get to enjoy all the benefits of excellent dental health, then you will want to make sure that you have dental exams and regular dental cleanings on a periodic basis as part of your Marlton dental care.
At our Koplin Dental office, our expert and highly trained dentist is Dr. Michael W. Koplin. Dr. Koplin has been providing exemplary dental care to patients in our community for many years. At our dental practice we emphasize the importance of periodic dental exams and teeth cleanings. These are perhaps the most important things you can do to keep your good dental health. During a dental exam, our dentist will review your entire oral situation. Dental x-rays may be taken. Then your teeth will be thoroughly examined to make sure you are not developing any cavities or problems with teeth grinding or TMJ. Our dentist will then make sure that your gums are healthy and that you do not have any signs of oral cancer. Our dentist will also check to make sure that your bite is not experiencing any problems, nor is your jaw exhibiting any signs of stress or of developing a misaligned bite. Having a periodic dental exam is an important part of your Marlton dental care.
Is also important that you have dental cleanings at our practice every six months to make sure that your gums stay in excellent health. Teeth cleanings will not only keep your teeth clean and make it less likely that any cavities will develop, but teeth cleaning will also keep your teeth free of plaque and tartar which can cause deep pockets to form between the teeth and gums. When these deep pockets form, tarter, plaque, and bacteria will all gather in the deep pockets and infection will form. At this point you will have mild to moderate gum disease. When you have developed gum disease you will need to be treated by a periodontal treatment of scaling and root planing. If your gums cannot be brought back to good health with this dental procedure, you may even need to have gum surgery. However, it is good to know that this can almost always be prevented by coming into our dental practice for periodic dental cleanings and dental exams.
