There are plenty of things we can do to keep our mouths consistently healthy. The buildup of plaque and tartar make it necessary that we brush and floss our teeth daily and visit our dentist for cleanings about every six months. Plaque and tartar buildup can happen quickly so keeping up with these daily rituals becomes a necessity. Whether you need routine dental cleanings or more intensive periodontal deep cleanings, your Hanover periodontal specialist is here to help. We here at Attentive Dental Care know just how sensitive your oral health is and we are dedicated to making sure it is always at its absolute best.
Morristown Periodontal Specialist
Here at Attentive Dental Care, Karey P. Matthews DDS is here to help you and your whole family. No matter what dental or oral care you need, this Hanover periodontal specialist is here to ensure that your needs are met comfortably and successfully. Sometimes periodontal disease can begin to thrive despite our better efforts to keep it at bay, and this is why regular trips to the dentist are so important to keep up with. Brushing and flossing helps get rid of daily buildup, but plaque and tartar can still be stubborn in those hard to reach places such as in the grooves of the teeth, between the teeth and along the gumline. Periodontal deep cleanings can help get rid of that pesky buildup and succeed where toothbrushes, dental floss, and mouth washes fall short. A periodontal deep cleaning often consists of root scaling and planing. This is when your Hanover periodontal specialist, Dr. Matthews, smoothes the root surfaces of your teeth and removes any infected tissue. In early stages of periodontal disease, more commonly known as gingivitis, small pockets may form along the gumline where plaque builds up. Dr. Matthews will clean out these areas, allowing the gumline to properly reattach itself to the tooth. A further stage of this disease usually sees to larger pockets which may require surgery to fix.
Periodontal deep cleanings here at Attentive Dental Care can help put your mouth back on the right track to remaining happy and healthy. Your Hanover periodontal specialist, Dr. Matthews, is here to help you and every member of your family regain their oral and dental health.
Orthodontic treatment can be a difficult situation to grasp. The treatment of malocclusions or bite problems may not seem like a big deal to some of us, but bite problems are just, that a problem. Without treatment malocclusions can damage our teeth over time, causing many dental health problems later in life. But orthodontistry doesn’t have to mean cumbersome braces. The latest advanced in the popular system known as Invisalign has allowed for treatment of more advanced bite problems than ever before. Your Morristown Invisalign dentist at the offices of Attentive Dental Care can work with you throughout your treatment for effective treatment of your malocclusion, without the need for braces.
Our officially licensed and experienced Morristown Invisalign dentist can work with you to give you the perfect smile in a way that is less invasive, painful, and actually healthier than traditional braces. Invisalign is a system of clear plastic braces that works to correct your bite problem, as well as gaps in your teeth and other placement problems. The system works by advancing the plastic retainers periodically to progress your treatment we can give you a smile you can be happy about. This clear plastic is made from molds of your own teeth, so your Invisalign retainer will always fit perfectly for you. The material is far more comfortable than the metal wire of traditional braces, which can often lead to irritation on the sides of your mouth. Traditional braces also require tedious attention to cleaning and care, as food always becomes lodged in their complex metal workings, allowing for plaque and tarter buildup that can give you tooth decay even as it corrects your bite problem. With Invisalign your retainers come off with a simple movement, and can be cleaned as needed easily and effectively.
The latest systems offered by your Morristown Invisalign dentist can treat more problems than ever before with the addition of plastic buttons or attachments that allow for your Invisalign system to know include the use of bands. These bands can work just like the bands you see in braces to correct bite problems that would normally require traditional braces to correct. At the offices of Attentive Dental Care we carry a wide variety of Invisalign systems that can work to correct your bite problems in ways that have not been previously possible. Our local offices make it easy for you to maintain your treatment by having a nearby location you can pick up your retainers from, as well as friendly and knowledgeable staff who look to build lasting relationships with our clients for truly personalized care. At Attentive Dental Care we are truly dedicated to correcting your bite problems through the use of Invisalign systems for a beautiful smile.
