Making This a Regular Thing
Scheduled dental cleanings not only remove build-up from your teeth, but they are also important for your overall health. Research has shown that gum disease is linked to cardiovascular health.
With each visit, our dental hygienist thoroughly and gently cleans your teeth and gums. We can take X-rays (or radiographs) and photos to keep tabs on any trouble spots. Regular cleanings are the best way to keep you smiling wider.
Periodontal (gum) diseases, including gingivitis and periodontitis, are serious infections that, left untreated, can lead to tooth loss.
Some common misconceptions about oral health are:
- Bleeding gums are not that big of a deal
- You don’t need to floss every day
- A tooth lost to gum disease is a tooth lost forever
