Dr. Jorge Bastidas recommends that you have a dental checkup, including an exam and teeth cleaning, in Paterson, New Jersey, every six months. This can help our dentist to catch dental problems early on and even prevent problems from arising!
During your teeth cleaning, our dental hygienist will remove plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) from your teeth using a small metal tool. Then we will floss your teeth and polish them. Fluoride, a mineral that prevents tooth decay, is also applied to your teeth. Our dentist will then perform the exam portion of the checkup. Dr. Jorge Bastidas will examine your teeth and gums for signs of decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems. We may also decide to take X-rays. This will help us get a closer look at your teeth and view areas that cannot be seen with the naked eye. If any oral problems are found, Dr. Jorge Bastidas will discuss your treatment options with you.
If you experience any dental pain or any kind of dental emergency, we urge you to contact Comfort Dental Care as soon as possible. The following symptoms are reason to visit our dentist:
- Swollen, tender, or red gums
