Northvale Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Joel D. Rosenkrantz, Explains the Importance of Oral Hygiene and Preventative Dental Care
NORTHVALE, N.J., Sep 19, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- For many reasons, including fear, many people avoid going to the dentist until they are experiencing serious pain. Northvale cosmetic dentist, Dr. Joel D. Rosenkrantz stresses the importance of preventing oral diseases with good personal hygiene and regular trips to the dentist.
The Dental Fears Research Clinic at the University of Washington estimates as many as 20% of Americans experience enough anxiety that they will only visit their dentist when it is absolutely necessary. By waiting to visit a dentist until it's absolutely necessary may be too late to prevent common problems due to periodontal disease.
"When patients visit us because they are suffering from pain caused by periodontal disease, my staff and I are very compassionate and understanding of their needs," says Rosenkrantz. "We do everything we can to provide gentle dental care. Also, I'm a funny guy. One way or another I'll make them smile. It helps increase their level of comfort so that we can deal with their dental issues with surgical or non-surgical procedures."
In addition to regular visits to the dentist, reducing the chance of gum disease involves developing good person hygiene habits. Good oral hygiene habits include brushing at least twice each day, flossing at least once each day, and reducing the amount and frequency of acidic foods and drinks.
When a patient's teeth and gums are clean and healthy, they are perfect candidates for cosmetic dentistry, including teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, bridges, and implants. Dr. Rosenkrantz has been specializing in cosmetic dentistry for more than 30 years. "I enjoy improving the aesthetic appearance of my patients by giving them beautiful smiles. They leave my office looking happier, healthier, and younger. It's truly wonderful to see the transformation in their attitude and self-confidence."
