Your Henderson Dentist Keeps You Smiling
Did you know that the health of your smile can impact your whole body? It’s true. Numerous studies illustrate the link between bad oral bacteria and health problems such as osteoporosis, heart disease, diabetes complications, and more. Protecting your smile is a crucial step in maintaining good health and a good quality of life. The team at Black Mountain Dental believes that a healthy smile is invaluable!
Henderson dentist Dr. Ghim understands the oral healthcare needs of patients of all ages. He recommends that children and adults attend checkups and cleanings every six months to prevent dental problems from occurring and to minimize the damage caused by existing dental conditions. At your dental checkup, Dr. Ghim will:
- Perform a tooth-by-tooth check for decay
- Evaluate the health of your gums
- Conduct an oral cancer screening
- Assess your bite (how your top and bottom teeth fit together)
We’ll take digital X-rays, as needed, and evaluate any current concerns you may have. Images taken with an intraoral camera can give you a clear picture of the state of your oral health and make you an equal partner in treatment planning. Addressing problems in the early stage, before they cause significant damage, allows Dr. Ghim to administer conservative treatments that can save you time, money, and potential discomfort in the long run.
The hygienist will gently, yet thoroughly, clean your teeth to remove hardened food particles and plaque that cause gum disease. Regular dental cleanings are vitally important to maintain a good level of oral health. Gum disease is the leading cause of adult tooth loss and can damage whole-body wellness. We’ll teach you how to brush and floss at home to keep gum disease at bay. If the hygienist sees symptoms of gum disease, Dr. Ghim will create a customized treatment plan to put you on the path to good gum health. Gum disease treatments include a deep cleaning, antibiotic therapy, and laser therapy.
