Good and consistent dental hygiene habits can help you maintain a healthy smile. The American Dental Association recommends brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing once per day. They also recommend regular checkups at a general dentist office like ours.Dr. Jerry Farrell on his practice philosophy
During your dental cleanings and exams, we will do some important things for you. Our team with remove plaque and tartar from your teeth, which reduces your risk of tooth decay and gum infections. We also polish your teeth so they look their best.
Preventive care is one of our main priorities. Even so, most people will have at least one cavity and develop some form of periodontal disease during their lives. As part of your exam, we will look for any signs of these issues. We want to catch them as early as possible, so your treatment is simpler and less expensive.
If you do have a cavity, we offer composite tooth fillings as part of our restorative dentistry. These fillings are made of a resin that can be shaded to match the color of our teeth, unlike metal fillings. Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical treatment for gum infections.
If something does happen, like a chipped or broken tooth, we can help with that, too. Our in-house porcelain lab can make dental crowns that restore the appearance and the function of your damaged teeth. We also offer a wide array of cosmetic services, such as professional teeth whitening and orthodontics, so your smile can look as good or better than it ever has.
Keep your beautiful smile for years to come. Plan to visit our dentist at Binghamton University. Call 607-304-3993 to make your next appointment at Dr. Farrell’s office.
