Regular dental exams for you and your family at Dr. Graber’s Rutherford, NJ, dental office can detect dental problems early. Along with preventive care, Dr. Graber and his staff believe that early detection of cavities, broken fillings and gum disease during routine exams are easily treated. When these problems go untreated, root canals, gum surgery, and the removal of teeth may become the only treatment options available.
Dental studies indicate that about 85% of all adults in the United States have some form of gum disease. Periodontal disease causes halitosis, which is persistent bad breath. Regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing with an antimicrobial mouth rinse combined with check up scalings are the best way to make sure you are maintaining good oral hygiene.
