Exams & Oral Hygiene

For Healthy Teeth and Gums

Oral Hygiene

Why is oral hygiene so important? Adults over 35 lose more teeth to gum disease (periodontal disease) than from cavities. Three out of four adults are affected at some time in their life. The best way to prevent cavities and periodontal disease is by good tooth brushing and flossing techniques, performed daily, along with professional cleanings by a hygienist and regular dental exams. To see a demonstration of proper brushing and flossing techniques, watch our educational videos:

Dental Exams

You should visit your dentist every 3 to 6 months as recommended by your dentist for a regular check-up and cleaning. At those times, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums and provide an evaluation of any dental problems and a proposed treatment plan to return your mouth to health.

Gum Disease

Periodontal (gum) disease and decay are both caused by bacterial plaque. Plaque is a colorless film, which sticks to your teeth at the gum line. Plaque constantly forms on your teeth. By thorough daily brushing and flossing you can remove these germs and help prevent periodontal disease.

I have been seeing Dr. Hochberg for 23 years. He is an expert and an artist. He created an intricate solution for an unusual dental problem, and that work has served me perfectly for the past 15 or so years. My hygienist, Karen, is the best in terms of care and people skills.
