Mt. Laurel dental care
Our patients choose Pleasant Valley Family Dentistry for their Mt. Laurel dental care because our practice provides every member of the family with the most experienced, compassionate, and affordable dental care possible. By educating our patients of all ages regarding their treatment options and procedures, we equip them to make more informed choices regarding their oral health. We aim to not only fix any dental issues that arise with our patients, but also to provide them with the necessary measures to prevent further oral health issues. For many, this preventive approach in dental care begins with a dental exam.
Your first visit to our office establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you. During the first visit, we make sure to obtain important information like your dental and medical histories and give you time to get to know our dentists. Our Mt. Laurel dental care practice is designed to help you and every member of your family prevent new cavities, preserve teeth that have been restored, and manage periodontal (gum) disease. At the initial visit with us, we will do much more than merely clean your teeth and gums. Your dentist will perform a complete oral examination which includes an oral cancer screening, periodontal evaluation, and an analysis of your occlusion (bite). This ensures a thorough examination of your teeth, their supporting structures, and of the oral anatomy. Remember, healthy gums are just as important as your actual teeth no matter what age you are. Routine teeth cleanings and dental care is an incredibly effective method in preventing future dental problems, such as gum, or periodontal, disease. There are many different varieties of periodontal disease, and many ways in which these variations manifest themselves. It is important to prevent gum disease as infection and inflammation of the tissues that support your teeth can erode the ligament and bone beneath the gums, resulting in tooth loss. At Pleasant Valley Family Dentistry, we provide regular examinations of your gums during checkups with a periodontal probe and regular x-rays. If periodontal disease is diagnosed, your doctor will discuss with you which of our services will best suit your individual needs. Gingivitis is among the most common. However, all forms of gum disease require immediate treatment by their dentist to halt the progression and save the gum tissue and bone.
Natural teeth, teeth with restorations, and the gum tissue that surrounds these teeth survive best in an oral environment that is clean and where proper oral hygiene is maintained. Therefore, it is vital that you and your family visit our Mt. Laurel dental care practice routinely for teeth cleanings. We recommend visiting your dentist every six months to maintain proper form, function, health, and beauty of your teeth, gums, and mouth. Call our office or consult our website for further information regarding teeth cleanings or any of our other many preventative, cosmetic, or restorative dental care services available to all members of your family.
