Preventive and Diagnostic Dentistry
An oral examination is a visual inspection of the mouth, head, and neck, performed to detect abnormalities. Radiographs allow for a more complete examination, helping the Staten Island dentist to detect cavities, problems in existing dental restorations, gum and bone recession or other abnormal conditions within the mouth, head and neck area.
Drs. Klein and Klein perform thorough and detailed periodontal evaluations to help to stabilize your dental foundation. Non-surgical treatments are highly effective and are available at Dynamic Dental. We have a network of specialists if your condition requires more focused attention.
Sporting goods stores also offer semi-custom mouth guards, in which the plastic is heated and then the athlete bites on it while still warm to provide some level of custom fit.
Your dentist can make a custom mouth guard by taking an impression of your teeth and then creating a device fitted to your mouth for the highest level of both comfort and protection. A custom fitted mouthguard can be particularly important for athletes who wear braces.
Be sure to bring your mouthguard to your dental appointments so your doctor can be sure it still fits you well.
- Brush your teeth twice a day with an ADA-accepted flouride toothpaste. The ADA seal on a product is your assurance that it has met ADA criteria for safety and effectiveness.
- Clean between teeth daily with floss or an inter-dental cleaner. Decay causing bacteria still linger between teeth where toothbrush bristles can’t reach. Flossing removes plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line.
- Eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks.
- Visit us regularly for routine cleanings, flouride treatments, oral exams, periodontal evaluation, and oral cancer screenings.
