Moorestown Dental Hygiene

Maintaining healthy dental hygiene is critical to your overall dental and oral health. Any infections, irritations, or decay can affect your entire mouth if left untreated and can lead to cavities, tooth and bone loss, as well as other complications. This is why regular dental appointments and cleanings are so important. In addition to at home dental and oral hygiene regiments, regular dental cleanings can help prevent the buildup of plaque and checkups can help your dentist identify the presence of any serious conditions before they get too serious. If you already have signs of gum disease, it isn’t too late. Just visit us here at Koplin Dental and our dentist here at our Moorestown dental office can see to your issues right away.

Gum disease is a serious issue. It often occurs due to poor dental and oral hygiene and is caused by significant amounts of plaque that can buildup on the tooth’s enamel and along the gumline. Plaque has an acidic reaction with sugars and other carbohydrates when you eat them. It is this reaction that causes tooth decay and gum recession. Pockets can form along the gumline where more plaque will accumulate which can irritate and inflame the gums as well as eat away at the tooth roots and bone. If you exhibit signs of gum disease, Dr. Koplin here at Koplin Dental can provide you with the therapy you need here at our Moorestown dental office. Dr. Koplin will first thoroughly examine your mouth in order to establish your overall oral health as well as to assess the level of gum disease you exhibit. This will help inform Dr. Koplin about what sort of treatment options will work best for you. Any of these treatments can include scaling and root planing (otherwise a deep cleaning), antibiotic treatment which can be applied in multiple forms, and even surgery for more serious cases.

Treating gum disease is important and can help save your teeth, gums and overall oral health. Here at our Moorestown dental office, Dr. Koplin can help identify any periodontal disease and treat it accordingly. Improve your oral health today and call us to schedule an appointment with us here at Koplin Dental.

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.
