Gum disease (also known as periodontal disease) is very common and can become very serious… affecting gum tissue and bone health, and potentially even resulting in heart problems or strokes. Regular professional cleanings (as well as a solid home oral hygiene routine) can help stop this disease before it ever starts.
We recommend having your teeth professionally cleaned every six months. This not only reduces the amount of plaque calcifying on your teeth; it also allows us monitor your overall oral health. By coming in for a check-up and hygiene treatment on a regular basis, we can not only prevent potential problems… we may be able to catch them before they become too serious.
Typically, we’ll start by scraping the calcified plaque from around the gum line. After rinsing this away, we’ll polish and floss your teeth. This leaves a smoother surface behind, making it more difficult for plaque to accumulate. We may also administer a fluoride treatment, making your teeth more resistant to acidic foods and drinks.
Here are some of the things you should be doing on a daily basis in between your professional cleanings.
