While you probably already know that you should brush and floss your teeth on a daily basis, you may not be aware of the fact that you should also pursue professional dental cleanings. This is because there are areas of the teeth and mouth that most toothbrushes can’t reach. This means that plaque (the film of bacteria that forms over the teeth when you eat or drink) will eventually harden and become calculus. Calculus will break down the tooth’s enamel and cause cavities to set in. If you have professional cleanings done on a regular basis, you can prevent that from happening. In addition, if you have a heavy build-up of plaque or calculus, only a professional will be able to completely remove it.
Gum disease is caused by the same bacteria that is present in plaque and calculus. This bacteria will eventually attack the gums, leading to a condition known as gingivitis. This is the earliest form of gum disease and is characterized by swollen, red and sensitive gums that bleed whenever you floss or brush your teeth. This condition should be treated immediately so that it doesn’t develop into periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is the advanced form of gum disease. It can cause you to lose your teeth. It can even lead to damage to the jawbone. If you suspect that you have any form of gum disease, it is imperative that you receive periodontal treatment as soon as possible.
Have you ever been embarrassed by a sudden onset of bad breath? Or perhaps you are suffering from chronic bad breath? Also known as halitosis, bad breath is an embarrassing condition that can cause many people to feel self-conscious. A little over 25% of people in America have this condition. It can be caused by the foods you eat, by failing to maintain your oral health and by tooth decay. If you are one of the many people who suffer from halitosis, you can rest assured that there is a cure. All you have to do is discuss your issue with us at your dental exam. We can then decide what kind of treatment option is best for you. Common treatment plans include cleanings, specialized treatments and at-home treatment options.
Our dentists include an oral cancer screening as a standard part of your first dental exam at our office. This screening is incredibly important because oral cancer is a life-threatening disease that often goes undetected until it has spread to other parts of your body. If it is treated in its early stages, then you will have a better outcome. We recommend that all patients over the age of 18 receive oral cancer tests regularly.
