Dental Prophylaxis vs. Deep Cleaning: Understanding Periodontal Care with Dr. Mohr

476106489The health of your teeth and gums directly affects your overall wellness, making routine oral hygiene visits at the dentist a vital component of a healthy lifestyle. Keeping your gums healthy may actually reduce your risk of developing certain medical conditions, including heart disease, dementia, stroke, and cancer. At Smile Creations in Massapequa Park, NY, Dr. Allan S. Mohr helps his patients maintain exceptional oral health with a variety of preventive and periodontal care solutions, including dental prophylaxis and deep cleaning.

Comprehensive Gum Care for a Healthy Smile

Dental prophylaxis – commonly called a “prophy” – is a treatment that involves polishing the teeth to control bacteria on the teeth and just beneath the gum line. A prophy is typically performed twice per year, or every six months, to maintain healthy gums and teeth. This type of visit doesn’t take long (typically not more than an hour), and it is often completely covered by your dental insurance. Even patients who don’t have dental benefits can receive this kind of preventive care for very little out of pocket.

A deep cleaning is performed when the level of bacteria and plaque beneath the gum line is higher than normal and causing irritation of the gums. Left untreated, this inflammation and infection can lead to the loss of bone tissue and teeth over time. Fortunately, a deep cleaning can essentially halt the progression of periodontal disease before it advances to this level. During this type of visit, Dr. Mohr effectively removes the cause of the infection itself, the bacteria that accumulate on the teeth beneath the gums. Additional therapies may be used to decrease sensitivity and to promote healing, including a diode soft tissue laser and antibiotic medications. Deep cleaning visits are typically scheduled more frequently – approximately every three months – in order to maintain periodontal health.

Keep Your Family’s Smiles Safe with Preventive Dentistry this Halloween Season

160051708Autumn is upon us and Halloween is right around the corner. Families from across the country are gearing up to celebrate with costumes and the fun, familiar tradition of trick-or-treating with the kids. While you certainly can’t have Halloween without candy and other sweet treats, we do think that this is a great opportunity to emphasize the importance of preventive dentistry. At the office of Dr. Allan S. Mohr in Massapequa Park, NY, families from throughout Long Island and the surrounding areas are invited to protect their smiles from disease and decay with preventive dental solutions.

Preventive Dentistry for Long Island, NY & Beyond

While general dentistry checkups serve as the cornerstone of good oral health, there are certain times of year that warrant extra attention when it comes to little smiles. Your child’s Halloween haul presents a twofold problem: First, kids usually bring home much more candy than they can finish in just one weekend. This means that there’s a constant source of sugary, sticky treats within reach for weeks, increasing the amount of time your child’s smile is in contact with cavity-causing substances. Secondly, the most popular types of Halloween candy – including chocolate bars, Tootsie Rolls, caramels, taffy, and lollipops – tend to either stick to the teeth or remain in the mouth for extended periods of time. Both of these factors contribute to the development of cavities.

Fortunately, there is a way to help protect your son or daughter from tooth decay. In addition to brushing twice per day and flossing at least once daily, schedule an appointment with Dr. Mohr and ask about preventive dentistry solutions like dental sealants and fluoride supplements. Dental sealants help to protect hard-to-reach surfaces, reducing the chances of cavities on molars and premolars. Fluoride supplements effectively remineralize enamel so that it is better equipped to handle the onslaught of acid produced by bacteria in the mouth. Both treatments are completely safe and pain-free.
