Our goal at Derman Dentistry is for you and your family to have a lifetime of strong teeth and healthy gums. Good dental hygiene starts at home; however, to keep your teeth in optimal condition, as well as prevent tooth decay or damage, a dental visit every six months is essential. A professional examination and teeth cleaning, in addition to good brushing and flossing habits, can ensure a long-lasting, healthy smile.Contact Dr. Paul D. Derman or Dr. Burton Lavin today to learn more about general dentistry at our Lawrenceville practice.

Routine General Dentistry Procedures

Dental exams are strongly recommended for patients of all ages at least twice a year. During a routine dental exam, one of our dentists will check for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems.

X-rays will be taken for a more in-depth analysis of the teeth, gums, and bones.

Dental prophylaxis, also known as a dental cleaning, will be administered during your routine dental visit. A dentist or hygienist will remove tarter and plaque, as well as polish the teeth for a healthy and gleaming smile.

Fluoride treatment is a preventive measure that protects the teeth from plaque bacterium, and also reverses early decay. At Derman Dentistry, we can administer high-level fluoride treatments to both children and adults. We also recommend that patients obtain fluoride from everyday toothpaste, fluoride mouth rinses, drinking water, and certain foods.

Dental sealants are an excellent way to protect teeth from decay, particularly for young patients. A plastic, tooth-colored coating is applied to the teeth, sealing any cracks or crevasses, which are generally susceptible to bacteria that cause decay.

Education is important to maintaining excellent oral health. Our dental team works with patients of all ages to ensure that they understand the best practices for personal dental care at home. We will show you and family members proper brushing and flossing techniques, and offer other advice on how to keep a healthy smile.

If decay, damage, or other oral health problems are discovered during your routine dental visit, we can administer the necessary treatments, such as root canal therapy or dental fillings. We also offer an array of restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry procedures to ensure that your smile is gorgeous, healthy, and functional for years to come.
