Although keeping your teeth clean does help give you a bright and sparkling smile, it’s far from just a cosmetic procedure. It’s an important part of maintaining optimum dental health for life.
During a cleaning, we take note of any problems that we need to address. Catching problems early is important. Once the cleaning begins, we remove bacteria, plaque and tartar. We get under the rootline, removing materials that can damage your gums.
In its early stages, we call it gingivitis, and you know it as swollen, red, perhaps bleeding gums. If allowed to progress, it becomes gum disease, or periodontitis. This isn’t just damaging to your teeth and gums. It can affect your overall health. Steps you can take to prevent these problems include:
Gum disease can cause a litany of serious problems in your mouth and throughout your body. Some of the issues include:
Gum disease/periodontitis is more than an oral health issue. It appears to weaken your immune system and is associated with diabetes and kidney failure. Teeth cleaning is truly an important part of keeping your body as healthy as possible.
