Gum disease afflicts thousands of Americans each year, which is why an important part of daily oral care is maintaining a healthy mouth and performing a good cleaning and brushing each day. At Hanover Park Dental Clinic, our Roselle dentist provides a clean and safe environment for all your family’s dental needs while teaching them about the importance of preventive dental care.
A preventive care exam includes a periodontal evaluation to check gum health, an oral cancer screening, a bite occlusion analysis, as well as a check of the supporting structures of the teeth and the individual’s’ oral anatomy. Proper oral hygiene and regular cleanings are designed to stop bacteria from forming on the teeth that regular brushing alone cannot remove. A teeth cleaning is the best way to help dislodge debris and other food particles that can get trapped in between teeth and gums, creating bacteria that can cause cavities and gingivitis.

Maintaining healthy gums starts with proper brushing and flossing. Brushing at least twice a day, flossing and having annual cleanings is a great start to the right kind of preventive care. If periodontal disease is present, our Roselle dentist first treats it and then give patients oral hygiene instructions to take home. Bacteria causes plaque and buildup on the teeth. The bacteria eats away at tooth enamel, which can create cavities and gum disease. We also provide state of the art dental exams and equipment along with implants, crowns and porcelain veneers as well as the best in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. We believe in the continuing education of our patients and teaching them good oral health is one of the best ways to help them have healthy, clean teeth for many years.
