Having good oral hygiene is great for several reasons. First off, it leaves you with a great looking smile and fresh breath. Secondly, and perhaps most importantly, it is essential for taking care of your overall oral health. Here with our Kutztown best dentist, James C. Blankenhorn DMD you can be sure that you are getting the comprehensive oral and dental health care that you need. Whether you need routine cleanings or treatment for something specific, such as gum treatments, Dr. Blankenhorn can offer you the dental services that you need.
When it comes to taking care of your dental health, you will need to consider your gums as well as the teeth. Severe tooth decay can affect the health of your gums and poor gum health can directly affect your tooth health. Routine treatment is best when it comes to preventative care. With regularly scheduled dental cleanings, which you should plan about six months apart or so, your teeth and gums can be as clean as possible. It is still important to keep up with a daily oral hygiene regiment, which you can easily fit into your everyday routine. Brushing, flossing, eating well and staying away from things that could cause tooth decay or gum disease is a great start, but there is only so much that can do. In order to help get rid of more significant, stubborn plaque accumulation, you will need dental cleanings. Now, if you happen to develop a gum problem, you may need some more intensive dental cleanings. A few of them may be necessary if you develop gingivitis, but you will need more rigorous cleanings if you have full-on gum disease. Our Kutztown best dentist James C. Blankenhorn DMD
can perform root scaling and planing, gum reattachment and other gum treatments that you may need in order to return to full health.
If you need any kind of dental care, know that you can visit James C. Blankenhorn DMD for whatever treatments you need. Whether it is a routine dental cleaning or more intensive gum treatments, our Kutztown best dentist will take the best care of you.
