General Dentistry in Rhinebeck
As a modern dental practice, we use the best methods in general dentistry to offer a full range of services under one roof, from cavity fillings to dental crowns, dentures and even periodontal care.
New patients are always welcome. Here’s what you can expect at your first dental appointment:
- At your regular exam or cleaning, like your six-month checkup, our doctors will carefully examine your teeth and gums to check for signs of dental decay or wear. Digital X-rays may be prescribed as needed to stay up-to-date on your current dental health.
- Our hygienist, will perform a gentle tooth cleaning to remove the buildup of plaque, which simple brushing and flossing may not reach. Remember, preventive dental care is so important. If left unchecked, accumulated plaque or decay can quickly develop into gum disease, or gingivitis, recognized as an inflammation in the body and gums that have been linked to larger symptoms such as heart disease and high blood pressure to diabetes and pancreatic cancer.
- All of our dental exams will conclude with the application of fluoride varnish to help strengthen your teeth. Fluoride is an important natural mineral which works to remineralize the enamel layer of our teeth. It works in concert with the naturally occurring calcium in your saliva to keep teeth strong and resistant to cavities.
Go To The Dentist Regularly
Regular dental check-ups are about much more than oral health. If kept up, they can play an integral role in supporting mouth and body health and reducing the risks of needing expensive or complicated dental work in the future.
One thing patients who neglect to see the dentist often overlook is the value of preventive dental care. When you choose to see the dentist for a regular, minimally invasive checkup, you better support that your future visits to the dentist will be on your terms, with a dentist you know and trust.
