Dental 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 disease (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.

Patient Review

I have been a patient of Dr. Hochberg and his office for over 30 years. The service is always excellent and the staff very professional. I have had the same hygienist the entire time and our children now see her as well. Our family is always well taken care of and everyone at the front desk always has a smile. I could not ask more more. Thank you for taking care of us all this time!

The best dental experience I have EVER had! Dr. Diora was wonderful, nice and made me feel super comfortable. Her assistant was fun, efficient and when they were taking the bite-xrays, it was painless! Angela the hygienist made a visible difference with her skills. The front desk personnel were very helpful and so nice! This was truly the most pleasant experience I have had at a medical/dental office. Thank you all and keep it up!

Patient Review

I am from Tampa Florida and was sure I would never find another dental office that I loved as much! I was wrong. Dr. Doira and the entire team could not have been more welcoming and kind to me. They all spent time with me and made me feel that I was their only patient. Amazing care. This is a very special practice and I will be referring my family and friends.
