The Importance of Preventive Care

When was the last time you saw the dentist? It might be time you did…

We all understand the importance of visiting a dentist once a year for a checkup. After all, just as a technician has to check under the hood of your car to make sure everything looks goods, the same goes for you and your health, including your oral health. Here at our Jersey City, NJ, practice, our dentists Dr. Paul Lustiger and Dr. Alexander Hahn are dedicated to providing quality, trustworthy preventive dentistry to patients of all ages.

What is involved in preventive dentistry?

There is the preventive dentistry that we offer and there is the preventive dentistry that you practice yourself. Both are equally as important to the overall health of your teeth and gums. Preventive dentistry includes,

  • Six-month checkups and prophylactic cleanings
  • Oral cancer screenings
  • Dental x-rays
  • Brushing and flossing (at-home oral care)
  • Dental sealants (placed on children’s molars to reduce cavity risk)
  • Fluoride treatment (also to reduce the risk for cavities)
  • Custom sports mouthguards

What is the importance of preventive dentistry?

As you might imagine, there are so many benefits to providing your smile with the care it needs now to prevent problems from happening in the future. While we all might think that problems can’t happen to us, the fact is that more than half of American adults have gum disease and most Americans will have a cavity in their lifetime. Here are the benefits of visiting our Jersey City, NJ, family dentists for preventive dentistry every six months,

    The office is modern, the staff is super friendly and Dr. Lustiger is by far one of the most talented Dentist I've come across. Relatively painless. Amazing.
