While you may frequently brush and floss your teeth at home, routine dental cleanings done by a professional are important too. This is because of plaque, the sticky substance made of bacteria that forms on your teeth after you consume food and beverages. Most plaque can be removed at home, but it often sticks in places where it can’t be easily reached. When plaque is not removed, it will turn into calculus. This is a hard substance that eats away at the enamel of the tooth and eventually causes tooth decay. Professional dental cleanings can rid your teeth and gums of these substances and will ensure that your teeth remain healthy for a long time.
The bacteria found in plaque also lead to gum disease. In its earliest stages, this disease is known as gingivitis. Symptoms of gingivitis are gums that are red, swollen, sensitive or that bleed while being flossed or brushed. It is imperative that you receive gum disease treatment for your gingivitis before it turns into advanced stage gum disease. In its advanced stages, gum disease is called periodontal disease. By failing to treat your periodontal disease, you risk the ligaments that hold your teeth in place breaking down. This break down will result in you losing most or all of your teeth. If you’re in need of treatment for gum disease, contact our office today. We are able to treat potentially serious disease in any of its stages.
There are an estimated 25% or more of people in America who suffer from chronic bad breath. This common problem is also known as halitosis. While it is an embarrassing problem that can seemingly come up out of nowhere, there is usually some underlying cause behind it. These causes can include certain foods that have been consumed by the patient, tooth decay or a failure to maintain proper dental hygiene. If you have concerns over your halitosis, then please contact our team. We will meet with you and determine what the best treatment will be for your bad breath. Your treatment plan may include specialized treatments, professional cleanings and at-home hygiene recommendations.
Oral cancer is becoming more common due to the rise of the HPV virus. Adults over the age of 18 should receive an oral cancer screening during their routine dental exam. This helps your dentist to detect any early signs of oral cancer. Oral cancer can be fatal. Since it often goes undetected until it has already spread to other areas of the body, it can be difficult to treat once it has been found. By undergoing routine oral cancer tests, your dentist will be able to find the cancer before it becomes severe. While it may be tempting to put off an exam, it is important that you understand that early detection of oral cancer can save your life.
