Gallery 57 Dental cares about you, your family, and your oral health. When it comes to dentistry, the best way to ensure a healthy smile throughout your lifetime is to be a proactive participant in your oral health. The dentists at Gallery 57 in New York, NY work routinely with patients to help them understand the importance of avoiding preventable issues such as periodontal disease and tooth decay that can significantly affect the teeth, gums, and jawbone. We are here to educate patients on preventative care, allowing our team to develop treatment plans for one’s oral health and wellness over a lifetime.
The dangers of poor oral health habits
It is vital that patients work with their dentist to obtain the best possible care. This means not only visiting every six months for an evaluation and cleaning, but whenever problems arise between these visit. By taking a proactive approach to your oral health and wellness, you can prevent issues from developing in the first place—and when they do, get an early diagnosis and treatment to keep these problems from becoming larger and more expensive. Without monitoring the health of the smile with time, patients are putting themselves at risk of periodontal disease, tooth decay, infections, and damage to the natural teeth, gums, and bone.
How is preventative care less expensive than visiting when problems arise?
Many of the conditions that can negatively affect the smile are completely preventable. Patients who brush, floss, and see the dentist on a regular schedule will often have less cavities and disease than patients who only call the dentist when problems arise. Certain conditions, such as periodontal disease, are not reversible once they reach a certain stage, which is why knowing the signs of early disease and seeking treatment sooner rather than later can have a positive effect on the patient’s final outcome.
