At the office of Toby P. Kravitz, DDS, we use advanced approaches to deliver the most effective preventive dental care. We recommend biannual checkups for all our patients, to keep teeth cavity free from the start and to detect oral health conditions early on, when they are easiest to treat. With periodic examinations and teeth cleanings at our Norwich dental office, we keep your teeth healthy and strong throughout your life.
Preventive care begins at home, with your commitment to brushing, flossing and by maintaining a diet low in sugary foods. An effective oral hygiene regimen helps to combat the effects of plaque, a sticky film that continuously grows in the mouth, harboring bacteria that feed on sugar. Plaque is the main cause of many problematic oral health conditions, such as tooth decay and gum disease. During a teeth cleaning, our dentist removes plaque and tartar from difficult to reach spots that your toothbrush may have missed. A teeth cleaning is also an opportunity for our dentist the opportunity to guide you on better techniques for brushing and flossing at home.
We strive to make checkups informative and engaging, especially for our youngest patients, who are establishing the foundation for a lifetime of optimal oral health. For pediatric patients, we also provide extra cavity protection with fluoride treatments and dental sealants. As part of a routine checkup at our Norwich dental office, our dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth, gums and the supporting bone structure, using diagnostic films as needed. During a comprehensive examination, our dentist can detect tooth decay and gum disease from the outset, when they are easiest to treat. Throughout each visit, our compassionate, gentle dentist keeps you comfortable, informed and at ease.
Our highly skilled dentist and team of professionals make each visit to our Norwich dental office a positive, stress-free experience for you and your family. At the office of Toby P. Kravitz, DDS, your family’s oral health is our top priority. To learn more, give us a call today.
