At Guardian Dental, we place an emphasis on preventive care, and recommend visiting our Upper Manhattan dentist office twice a year for teeth cleanings, examination, oral cancer screenings and protective treatments. Our caring team of professionals makes every checkup a positive, stress-free experience for you and your family. We utilize the most advanced technology and treatment methods to preserve your teeth and help you maintain a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles.
Tooth decay and gum disease are caused by plaque; this sticky film gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugar. The bacteria in plaque produces acids, which eat away at tooth enamel, causing cavities to form, and when plaque gathers below the gum line, it infects and inflames the tissues supporting the teeth, which leads to periodontal disease. To protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque, it’s important to brush, floss, limit your intake of sugary foods and visit our Upper Manhattan dentist office for routine checkups and cleanings. As part of a checkup visit for patients of all ages, our dentist performs a comprehensive examination, with the use of advanced digital radiography as needed. With periodic examinations we can diagnose and treat conditions that may adversely affect your oral health from their outset, for the most straightforward course of care. Following your checkup, we provide a dental cleaning. During your teeth cleaning, we thoroughly remove any plaque buildup from difficult to reach areas between the teeth and gums, which you may have missed while brushing, and offer guidance on how you can brush and floss more effectively at home. For our pediatric patients, we help establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of cavity-free smiles by teaching your child how to maintain excellent oral hygiene habits and providing dental sealants and fluoride treatments.
