At Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale, we provide lifetime dental care and beautiful, lasting smiles. Since we are always focusing on the bigger picture of you oral health, we deliver premier preventative care, including early detection. If dental decay and disease are found early, treatments can be less invasive, less expensive, and less time intensive. Additionally, early detection is important in the long run because the less fillings and crowns you have in your mouth, the less likely you are to experience any major or complex dental problems. Our dedication to exceptional preventative care is why many patients have called us the best dentist in Scarsdale.
Each time you visit our office, our staff will work to detect dental problems before they become complex and painful issues. We will take X-rays of your mouth in order to see all parts of your teeth, and during your checkup we will carefully perform visual inspections to find fractures, discoloration, cavities, and plaque and tartar accumulation, no matter how small or new.
Once a problem has been detected, it needs prompt treatment. Our multidisciplinary approach means we offer treatment for most dental conditions in our office. Our diverse staff can manage the most complex dental health issues all in one location, saving you on time and visits.
One of the greatest benefits of early detection is that it minimizes the pain you experience from dental injuries or decay. If we find a problem before it has reached the pulp or root of your tooth, you probably won’t feel any discomfort at all, since the nerves are still untouched.
Early detection means simpler restorative procedures. When we treat dental problems early, the solutions are also less invasive, which means that they’re likely to be both quicker and less costly.
The health of your mouth can actually affect and reflect the health of the rest of your body, so early detection of dental disease and decay can work to keep the rest of you body safe. Your dentist may be the first to recognize health problems in other areas of the body, as many systemic issues show symptoms in the mouth, including diabetes, oral cancer, leukemia, pancreatic cancer, or heart and kidney disease. With any of these diseases, the earlier they are detected, the better your prognosis.
Contact our office today and make an appointment to see our team of highly skilled professionals. We will work to understand your dental concerns, plan a course of treatment which includes early detection, and make your dream smile a reality.
