At the office of Drs. Melman, Ravett and Associates, we emphasize the importance of prevention and early intervention when it comes to your dental health. Our Chestnut Hill dentist office utilizes the most advanced technology and methods to keep your smile healthy and beautiful from the start. With periodic teeth cleanings and examinations we can halt the onset and progress of tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health problems.
Preventive care begins at home with brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages. These steps help protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque, which is a sticky film that gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring the bacteria responsible for tooth decay and gum disease. To complement your daily oral hygiene regimen, it is also important to visit our Chestnut Hill dentist office for biannual checkups and professional teeth cleanings. During your teeth cleaning, we thoroughly remove plaque buildup, tartar and food debris from the most difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums, and offer guidance on how you can better clean and care for your smile between visits. For pediatric patients, we aim to establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of oral health, and can provide your child with dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which offer an added layer of protection against cavities. For patients of all ages, our dentist will thoroughly examine the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic examinations allow for the earliest possible detection and intervention to prevent subsequent damage to your oral health.
Every time you visit our Chestnut Hill dentist office for a checkup, you can expect personalized care from our compassionate professional team. At the office of Drs. Melman, Ravett and Associates, your oral health is our number one priority. To learn more or to schedule a checkup, give us a call today.
