Residents of Basking Ridge, NJ have the opportunity to admire and appreciate Lord Stirling Park, Harry Dunham Park, and the Civic Center Park, all without leaving the confines of city limits, and this can contribute to a sense of satisfaction and well-being with the New Jersey lifestyle. Another aspect of a fulfilling lifestyle is to look after your personal health, including your oral health. To be sure you do have good oral health, your best bet is to have your teeth and gums regularly treated by Dr. Konstantine Trichas at his dental clinic. You definitely need good oral health as one of the pillars of your overall foundation of good health, since the two are closely related.
In addition to the crucial biannual checkups, Dr. Trichas offers many more dental services that you may have need of at some point. Restorative dentistry can be very important to individuals who have lost one or more teeth, because it can supply a bridge, crown, or dental implant to take the place of any missing teeth. These dental appliances will fill out your facial features so you don't have that sunken look that generally accompanies the loss of one or more teeth. Bridges, implants, and crowns can also replace the functionality you may have lost with a tooth extraction, so that you can once again eat foods normally, and speak very clearly.
You may also be interested in some of the various forms of cosmetic dentistry made available at the clinic of Dr. Trichas. For instance, if you've sustained a chipped or cracked tooth, or if there are gaps between your teeth, these situations can be handled by installing dental veneers over them. Porcelain dental veneers might last 15 years or longer, if properly cared for. Maybe you'd just like to improve your smile through professional teeth whitening, which you can obtain at our clinic. If your teeth need to be straightened or re-positioned, you can have that done at Dr. Trichas' office also.
If it's been six months or longer since your last dental checkup, then yes, you are overdue for professional dental care. The reason that the interval between checkups is set at six months is that this is the amount of time it takes for plaque and tartar to build up around your teeth, and to begin causing problems in your mouth. A thorough professional cleaning will remove all this nasty material, so you aren't troubled by the destructive impacts they can have on your teeth and gums. Contact our office today to arrange for a cleaning and a good inspection of your teeth and gums.
