Improves oral health

Even if you brush and floss regularly, your at-home tools are no match for the ones your Chatham, NY dentists Domenic Riccobono, DDS and Vicki Cohn, DDS have. Even avid brushers and flossers can still leave plague behind, which can quickly turn to tartar. Unfortunately, tartar can’t be removed with traditional at-home oral instruments. Instead, we can remove this buildup and protect the health of your teeth and gums. So, what’s so bad about leaving tartar on your teeth? If left untreated tartar can eventually cause gum disease.

Protects against dental problems

Did you know that not all dental problems manifest symptoms? Sure, some people might complain of tooth pain or other problems, but this isn’t true of everyone. So how will you know if you, your spouse or your child has a problem? By seeing your Chatham, NY dentists Drs. Riccobono and Cohn At Countryside Dental every six months.

We can usually pinpoint cavities and symptoms of gum disease through a thorough exam. Also, we will perform X-rays each year to detect smaller signs of decay that we might not be able to see with the naked eye. Needless to say, your biannual visits could prevent health problems or prevent them from getting worse.

Saves time and money

While it can be hard to figure out where the money is going to come from to pay for dental cleanings for the whole family, it can be even harder to figure out how to pay for numerous treatments and procedures to get your smile back. Instead of dealing with extensive and costly procedures when they happen why not spend a little money upfront to protect your smile?

Increases personal oral care

If you teach your children the importance of a healthy smile by seeing your Chatham, NY family dentists at Countryside Dental every six months then this will also instill those same habits in your children as they grow older. By making dental health an important aspect in your life, you are also helping to make dental visits a habit for your child. Protect your child’s smiles for the future and keep up with both yours and their six-month dental appointments.
