Here at Easton Smiles, we use what advanced technology is available to us in order to help provide you with the best and most comprehensive care possible. Our Brockton general dentists, Dr. Thomas F. Herlihy and Dr. Robert Tuck, use digital dental X-rays in order to best monitor your dental health and progression. Dental X-rays provide insight as to what is happening beneath the gumline. This is vital for children whose teeth are still growing, for those who require orthodontic treatment, for identifying cavities and other conditions, as well as for monitoring the state of wisdom teeth. Being able to see these areas is important and can provide insight as to whether treatment is needed. It is important to monitor the growth of developing teeth in order to identify possible future problems such as malocclusions, misaligned teeth or a misaligned bite, all of which may later require orthodontic treatment. Cavities may exist between teeth and are therefore difficult to see, but an X-ray can provide more definitive information in indentifying areas of tooth decay. Wisdom teeth are also a huge issue, and may need to be removed before they cause severe dental trauma if an X-ray shows they are impacted.

Digital dental X-rays make it easier to store all information from past visits, making it easier for our Brockton general dentists to compare past X-rays and make astute observations during your current visit. These records also make it easier to identify changes or developments occurring in your mouth, especially if they are gradual changes that occur over time. We here at Easton Smiles want to make sure you have the best dental care possible and wish to use all of the tools available to us to ensure that we do so.

As part of a complete strategy for maintaining optimal oral health, Easton Smiles offers gum disease evaluations. Your teeth are important, but your gums should not be neglected in the process. You need both to be strong and weak gums can lead to tooth loss, regardless of the condition of your teeth. In addition, our Brockton dentist will provide you with prevention techniques so that you can maintain the vibrant pink hue and absence of irritation that mark healthy gums.

A gum disease evaluation gives our Brockton dentist a way to determine if you are exhibiting any signs of gum disease and take action to alleviate the concern before it progresses. You should receive a gum disease evaluation once per year consisting of a thorough checkup of your gums, your bite, and your bone structure. The early stage of gum disease is known as gingivitis and it is easier to treat. In many cases, a simple dental cleaning (or two) may be enough to remove any accumulated plaque, tartar, food particles, and bacteria from between your teeth and gums.

If, however, your gum disease is not detected and continues to advance, gingivitis can turn into periodontitis. At this stage of gum disease, you be dealing with an infection of the gum tissue and bone tissue. If your gum disease reaches this point, more extreme treatment is generally required. Commonly, our Brockton dentist would have to do a deeper and more invasive type of cleaning called scaling and root planing. It requires the use of hand scraping or ultrasonic tools (and possibly both) in order to get down into the roots and get you back on the road to gum health.

Clearly, the best way to avoid gum disease entirely is to practice solid prevention techniques in between visits to our Brockton dentist. Vigorous brushing and flossing on a daily basis is the best place to start. You may also benefit from the use of a good dental rinse. That combined with a twice yearly dental exam that includes at least one gum disease evaluation per year will work to prevent gum disease or at least catch it before it can lead to significant problems and discomfort.
