At Veritas Dentistry, we provide a comprehensive preventive program to halt the onset and progression of oral health problems. Our state-of-the-art approach to prevention, detection, and early intervention has earned us a reputation as a leading Yonkers dentist. We make checkups informative, engaging and stress-free for patients of all ages, personalizing treatment to meet each patient’s individual needs.
Adverse conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease are caused by a sticky film called plaque, which gathers continuously in the mouth, harboring bacteria that feed on sugar. The bacteria in plaque produce acids, which eat away at tooth enamel and cause cavities to form. As plaque accumulates below the gum line, it can infect and inflame the soft tissues and bone structure supporting the teeth, leading to periodontal disease. To protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque it’s important to brush, floss, limit your intake of sugary foods and beverages, and visit our Yonkers dentist for periodic teeth cleanings. During your teeth cleaning, we thoroughly remove plaque buildup from the most difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums as well as offer guidance on techniques you can use at home to maintain better oral hygiene. For our pediatric patients, we strive to impart the importance and responsibility of good oral hygiene and provide children with extra protection against cavities with the placement of dental sealants and periodic fluoride treatments. As part of a checkup for patients of all ages, our dentist performs a thorough examination, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. Our goal is the prevention of dental disease and to diagnose conditions in their earliest stages, which allows for the most straightforward and effective course of care.
A lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles involves periodic visits with our Yonkers dentist. At Veritas Dentistry, we provide personalized attention and customized care at every checkup. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
