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.

The hygienist (Angela) did great and mercifully painless work with my cleaning, and Dr. Diora gave very helpful advice in response to a couple of questions I had.

I came to Colony Square Dental with a litany of problems from poor past dental work and living in a remote area overseas where there was no dentistry. Dr. Hochberg and his dental hygienist, Karen, made a plan. My teeth, and my gums in particular, are showing remarkable health. I believe their knowledge and experience and have enormous trust in this practice. Dr. Hochberg was recently elected as President of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID.) The staff is great. Give them a try if you're thinking about a healthy mouth and teeth. (No, I'm not a relative!)

Angela being my new hygienist is a continuation of the professional, nice and courteous staff members that I have had with all my visits.

I've been happy with my treatment (including dental implants) and with the administrative staff. I have complete confidence in their approach and ability to provide the best dental care.
