Have you been thinking about a cosmetic dentist and possibly having some work done to improve your smile? Or are you simply interested in going to the dentist to make sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy? Whichever the case, you will do well to visit our Midtown Manhattan dentist at PresiDental Care.
At our practice our fine dentists are: Dr. Jessica Figueroa; Dr. Shahnam Shifteh; Dr. Christopher Cummings; and Dr. Jennifer D. Johnson. At our practice we are able to provide exemplary dental care for all of our patients. We are able to provide our patients with a complete array of dental procedures to take care of almost all dental care needs. Our Midtown Manhattan dentist always stresses the importance of healthy gums in order to have a healthy mouth. Regularly brushing and flossing your teeth at home is very important to keep your teeth and gums healthy. However, having healthy gums also depends upon having regularly scheduled professional dental cleanings at our office.
When plaque is left on your teeth after brushing, it will harden and turn into tartar. Tartar is a hard, mineralized substance that can only be removed by professional dental cleaning instruments. If tartar is left on teeth it will begin to work its way between the teeth and the gums and deep pockets will form. When plaque, tartar and bacteria gather in these deep pockets you have the beginning of gum disease. As time goes on the pockets deepen even more. Eventually the gum infection will reach the jawbone. When this happens the jawbone weakens and teeth will begin to loosen and fall out. When this occurs our Midtown Manhattan dentist will need to perform a scaling and root planing procedure that will clean out the deep pockets, and hopefully get them on the road to healing. Our dentists are also are able to provide many other dental procedures including providing you with dental veneers, porcelain crowns and fixed and removable bridges.
