Be honest: When was the last time you went to the dentist? While our hectic schedules leave us juggling work and home, our dental health often falls to the wayside. But without routine dental care, our teeth and gums become vulnerable to serious dental issues, such as tooth decay and gum disease. In today’s blog, your Livingston dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, explain the importance of regular checkups and cleanings and discuss our approach to providing general dental care.


When Should I See My Livingston Dentists?

According to the American Dental Association, people should undergo a checkup and cleaning once every six months. Checkups and cleanings allow Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom and our team of dedicated dental professionals to watch for any signs of developing dental problems.


Using digital x-rays and hi-tech intraoral cameras, your Livingston dentists can peer beneath the gums to accurately assess the state of your dental health. With innovative screening technology, Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom can also provide precise oral cancer screening. Last year, over 42,000 people were diagnosed with oral cancer. On average, about 50% of those diagnosed with oral cancer don’t survive the five years following diagnosis. This is because often the disease isn’t discovered until the late stages. Early detection is possible with routine checkups and can increase the chances of recovery.

Dental Cleanings

A dental cleaning performed by our talented dental hygienists helps keep your breath fresh and can prevent gum disease by removing layers of plaque buildup. Cleanings also brighten your smile, as plaque buildup elevates the risk of teeth stains.  At The Silverstrom Group, our state-of-the-art general dental care can help maintain beautiful smiles for the entire family.
