Leading Greenwich Village dentist, Dr. Charles Puglisi, explains how to maintain oral health in three simple steps.
Maintaining oral health
Online PR News – 13-January-2014 –According to Dr. Charles Puglisi, DMD, F.A.G.D., also known as “The Greenwich Village Dentist,” (www.drpuglisi.com), his New York family dentistry practice uses three methods to ensure that he meets his mission statement of keeping his patients healthy.
“Good dental health requires the active participation of the patient,” says Dr. Puglisi. “This is the first step in maintaining good oral health.”
Dr. Puglisi explains that this is why, at his practice, he and his staff strongly emphasize patient education to offer all of the possible options in dental care, from the procedures he performs to the different ways that patients can maintain healthy teeth and gums.
“Our patient newsletter, for example, offers current topics of interest in dental health, as well as updates of our professional activities,” Dr. Puglisi explains. “We also have educational brochures available covering numerous dental healthcare topics.”
The second step in creating a healthier smile through oral health is through a thorough first exam, according to Dr. Puglisi.
“On your first visit, plan to come in early to complete a medical and dental health history form, which I will personally review with you,” he says. “I will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and mouth, including an oral cancer screening.”
If needed, radiographs will be taken, Dr. Puglisi will perform a cleaning and, if time permits, any other dental treatment that might be needed. Sometimes, he says, follow-up visits are required.
Finally, Dr. Puglisi says that the third key to maintaining oral health lies in regular preventative oral care.
“At our practice, we believe in the benefits of regular preventive care in order to maintain optimal dental health and to detect and treat dental problems before they require extensive treatment,” says Dr. Puglisi. “That is why we encourage our patients to return for periodic maintenance visits.”
