Dental Hygiene

Preventive care is important to the oral health of our patients. A thorough and gentle scaling of both hard and soft bacterial debris on a regular basis will maintain healthy gums and essential bone support for your teeth. Periodontal disease, or simply gum disease, is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. It is caused when bacteria in the form of soft plaque accumulates on the teeth, irritating the gums and causing them to become red, swollen, and to bleed easily.

Over time the plaque hardens to form calculus (tartar) which creates deep pockets below the gums and begins to destroy the bone surrounding your teeth. These deep pockets are impossible for you to clean and eventually if enough bone is destroyed, tooth loss is inevitable. Frequent scaling to remove this harmful bacterial deposit will prevent periodontal disease and maintain healthy, beautiful smile.
