Regular appointments to the dentist are vital to preventive care, which is why the American Dental Association recommends you see your dentist every 6 months. However, despite their recommendations, only 62% of adults saw their dentist last year. Often, people do not understand the importance of seeing their Edison dentist regularly. Often, people believe brushing and flossing are enough to ward off dental problems. In other cases, people feel they do not need to see the dentist until after a problem as developed. However, these beliefs are far from true. No matter how well you brush, you still need to see your dentist regularly—even if you do not have any dental concerns.

Gum disease must be taken seriously. This bacterial infection has the potential to ravage gum, connective and bone tissue; make an otherwise beautiful smile look unsightly; and may even lead to systemic illnesses and diseases. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, begins with plaque, a clear film that contains saliva, food particles and bacteria. Daily brushing and flossing help to remove plaque. However, if oral hygiene is ignored and plaque remains then it calcifies to become tartar. This substance can only be removed by the dental hygienists at your Edison dentist, Resnick & Rosenfeld.
