Healthy gums are an important part of daily oral care and maintaining a healthy mouth. Gum disease afflicts thousands of Americans each year. At the offices of Sevak Abrahamian, DDS, LLC, we provide a clean and safe environment for Wilmington teeth cleaning and your family cosmetic and implant dental care.
We begin with a thorough and comprehensive oral exam to establish an oral health baseline to better serve our patient’s needs. This includes a periodontal evaluation to check the state of your gums and gum health, an oral cancer screening, a bite occlusion analysis, and an exam of the supporting structures of the teeth and oral anatomy. Proper oral hygiene and regular cleanings are key to maintaining a healthy mouth and gums and preventing cavities from starting. Having a Wilmington teeth cleaning at least once a year can help to dislodge debris and other food particles that can get trapped in between teeth and gums, causing bacteria that begin to decay the tooth and cause cavities and gingivitis. We educate all our patients about dental hygiene and in preventing new cavities. If periodontal disease is present, we treat and then give our patients oral hygiene instructions in order to completely rid the mouth of any gum disease or infections.
Maintaining healthy gums starts with proper brushing and flossing habits. Brushing at least twice a day as well as flossing is the best way to remove food that can cause bacteria. Bacteria causes plaque and buildup on the teeth, which begins to eat away at the tooth enamel. Brushing and flossing daily helps this, as well as receiving a Wilmington teeth cleaning each year at our offices. We provide state of the art dental exams, state of the art equipment, cosmetic and restorative dentistry, implants, crowns and porcelain veneers. We also provide out patients with access to professional teeth whitening. We specialize in family and pediatric dentistry and in creating healthy and lasting smiles for all of our patients and their families. The importance of oral care and healthy teeth and gums will last a lifetime, and we believe in educating our patients about this as well as offering everyone affordable and professional dental care.
