Whether you realize it or not, you can prevent tooth damage and protect your oral health more completely than any dentist. Understanding the principles to good dental hygiene and learning the importance of regular teeth cleanings and oral exams in Oradell is the first step to maintaining your dental health and preventing future damage.

Rigorous attention to your dental hygiene while you are at home can prevent a wide variety of costly dental repairs, but even the most diligent brushing cannot completely protect you from the harmful effects of bacteria.

Oradell general dentist Dr. Howard Perlmutter may also recommend periodontal treatment to protect your gums against damage. Without healthy gums, you cannot have healthy teeth.
