Routine Preventative Dental Visits are the Most Effective Ways to Avoid Future Dental Treatments

While a myriad of dental procedures exist to solve any number of issues. Most problems can have been remedied by preventative measures.

Before: Plaque, calculus and tartar present

The most effective strategy to fight cavities and gum disease is to see your dentist or dental hygienist for a routine check-up and a dental cleaning. This easy step that takes no more than 2 hours out of the year can save thousands of dollars and save hours spent in a dental chair.

The most effective at home measures are flossing and brushing teeth twice a day. When gums are subject to food particles for long periods of time they get inflamed. This gum inflammation is called gingivitis. Flossing removes plaque from your gums to keep them healthy. Brushing also removes food particles from teeth and gums to prevent cavities.

Using a Fluoride mouthwash nightly, such as ACT, helps to keep cavities from forming. Fluoride can actually reverse cavities while they’re still very small. That’s the reason NYC tap water is fluoridated.

ACT Mouthwash

To encourage patients to get their routine cleanings, Smile Arts of NY is offering Professional LED teeth whitening for just one dollar with your next routine exam and dental cleaning.
