Keeping your gums healthy and strong is just as vital to your oral health as maintaining your teeth. Koplin dental offers gum disease evaluations as an essential part of doing just that. By doing a thorough checkup of your gums, our Moorestown dentist, Dr. Michael W. Koplin, can detect any potential concerns as early as possible and treat them before they progress and lead to bigger problems.

While it is recommended to get a complete dental exam that includes x-rays and a dental cleaning twice per year, a gum disease evaluation is need once per year. However, if you detect signs of gum disease, it is a good idea to make an appointment to be examined by our Moorestown dentist right away. Among the signs of gum disease are gums that are swollen or bright red, receding gums, persistent bad breath, gums that are tender to the touch, having a bad taste in your mouth, bleeding gums, and loose teeth. However, many of these symptoms are indications of more advanced gum disease. A gum disease evaluation is designed to find and eradicate it before it reaches that point. Gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease, may not yield obvious signs to you and that is precisely why an evaluation is so beneficial.

As part of your evaluation, our Moorestown dentist will discuss your medical and dental history, heredity, and other risk factors that can play into your gum health and overall dental well being. Paying attention to your gum health is very important because weak or diseased gums can create an unreliable foundation for your teeth, which under the worst circumstances can become loose and fall out as a result of gum disease.

There is a side benefit to your gum disease evaluation, too. Gum disease can indicate problems that need to be addressed elsewhere in your body. That is because inflammation is often not confined to just one region, and the sooner it is treated the less likely it will be to spread. There has even been proven associations between gum disease and heart disease, as well as diabetes.

Here at the Mt Laurel cosmetic dentist practice of Koplin Dental, we understand that there’s more to dentistry than making sure teeth and gums are strong and healthy.

Are you wanting to give your mouth’s appearance a boost without having to go through the hassle braces or porcelain veneers? Well, we have the perfect solution for you! The technique is called cosmetic dental bonding, and if you have a spare minute, we’d like to tell you a little bit about it.

When it comes to changing how your smile looks, braces and porcelain veneers are the methods people tend to know a lot about. While both are tried and true, they both cost a lot more and take longer (braces especially) than the cosmetic dental bonding we do here at the Mt Laurel cosmetic dentist practice of Koplin Dental. How does dental bonding work exactly? There are three basic steps. First, after conducting a comprehensive dental exam, your dentist will apply their expert eye to figuring out what color of resin to use. Second, as with porcelain veneers, the surface of the tooth/teeth to be repaired will be textured a little bit to help the resin stick better. Finally, the resin will be carefully sculpted to achieve the desired results and then blasted with a ray of light for hardening. All told, it’ll around 45 minutes for each tooth that needs fixing. While this may seem like an eternity, it’s really a drop in the bucket compared to the amount of time you’ll spend in the chair getting braces or veneers.

Dental bonding is good for all sorts of dental applications from addressing structural issues in decayed teeth to, as we said above, making your smile look better.
