Family Dentistry You Can Trust

To maintain a healthy mouth and shining teeth, regular brushing habits may not be enough, especially after day long exposure to germs from a wide variety of sources. Our mouth is constantly populated with bacteria which causes plaque and is also responsible for causing gum diseases and tooth decay. When plaque-forming bacteria work their way below the gum line, gum diseases starts to develop. Plaque is a sticky substance that carries a number of bacteria, which if left unchecked can carve out little pockets between gums and teeth, which grow with the passage of time. At Derry Village Dental Care, we offer a number of hygiene services to our patients, such as:
  • Checkup and regularly scheduled cleaning services
  • Prevention and treatment of periodontal diseases
  • Removal of harmful tartar
  • Making your mouth bacteria free using fluoride based paste
Apart from regular hygiene habits like flossing and regular brushing, dental check-ups and professional cleaning is advised to retain a shiny smile and a healthy mouth. Remember that with proper care, perfect oral health is never too far away. You just need the appropriate attention to oral hygiene habits and sound advice on how to take good care of your teeth and gums.

Helping Educate Our Patients

For our younger patients, we know that part of helping keep their mouths and gums healthy is informing and teaching them about good habits at home. The entire family can benefit from reminders about the best way to brush and floss, which alongside eating and drinking a healthier diet can play a large, beneficial role in good oral health. For example, excess sugar can remain on the teeth for a while after you eat candy or drink soda. This helps cause tooth decay, which can eventually lead to cavities, or worse. Before any dental issues get out of control, it’s best to come to the family dentistry experts at Derry Village Dental Care. In addition to providing high value screenings, exams, and checkups, we ensure that parents and guardians are well informed about changes to make in the home that can have a tremendously positive impact on dental health.
