Are you in need of a thorough dental cleaning? Our dentists can help with that! While you may have already established a frequent brushing and flossing routine, it is important that you receive professional cleanings so that hard-to-reach plaque and calculus don’t continue to build up and cause severe problems later on. Bacteria that stick to the teeth during eating and drinking form plaque. It will eventually turn into calculus if it is left to build up. Calculus is a firm substance that causes the enamel of the tooth to become destroyed, leading to dental decay. Routinely having your teeth cleaned by your dentist will enable the dentist to clean out plaque and calculus that you may have missed while brushing and flossing at home.
Gum disease is one of the main reasons why adults lose their teeth. The same bacteria that comprise plaque and calculus cause gingivitis. Do you suspect that you might have gingivitis? Common symptoms of this early stage of gum disease are red, swollen, or sensitive gums that begin to bleed when you brush or floss. Receiving prompt treatment for gingivitis will help you to avoid developing periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is commonly called advanced gum disease. This form of the disease is highly serious and can lead to you losing your teeth. It can also cause issues with your jawbone. If you have advanced stage gum disease, you need to see a dentist for periodontal treatment as soon as possible. Luckily for you, our dentists have plenty of experience in diagnosing and treating gum disease in all of its stages. Contact us as soon as you can so that you can avoid long-term consequences to your oral health.
Some of our patients come to us worried about their chronic bad breath. This condition is referred to as halitosis in the medical community. This embarrassing condition can cause you to feel self-conscious. Some people develop chronic bad breath because of the foods that they eat, while others develop it due to poor dental hygiene or advanced dental decay. No matter what may be causing your halitosis, our team of dentists can help to determine the underlying causes and develop a treatment plan that will aid you in getting rid of your bad breath. This treatment plan may consist of a routine professional cleaning schedule, specialized treatment and an at-home oral health hygiene regimen.
Is There a Cure for Oral Cancer?
Discovering that you have oral cancer can be scary. While this disease is a life-threatening one, it can be cured. The best way of ensuring that your oral cancer treatments are successful is to catch the disease early enough. Having a routine oral cancer screening at your dental exam does this. Early detection will keep the disease from spreading to other parts of your body. All of our patients who are over the age of 18 receive routine oral cancer screenings.
Preventative dental care is an essential part of maintaining your oral and physical health. To ensure that you are receiving top-notch dental health care, schedule a dental exam in Roxborough right away.
