It is very important to get regular dental cleanings to ensure that you have a healthy mouth and gums. Good dental care, both at home and in our office, is necessary to have a smile that you can be proud of!
When you come in for a routine cleaning, our dentist examines your mouth closely to ensure that it is healthy and free from disease. Then, we give your mouth a professional cleaning, removing tartar and plaque. This will help you to have better breath, better mouth anesthetics, and also allows us to spot any problems that you may be having.
We are also able to assist with periodontal maintenance during a routine cleaning. This treatment is for people that suffer from periodontal disease and need more aggressive care.
Periodontal disease comes in many forms, ranging from simple inflammation of the gums to a more advanced state of the disease that can result in damage of the soft tissue in the mouth.
Some of the signs that you may have periodontal disease are bad breath that won’t go away, red or swollen gums, tender or bleeding gums, painful chewing, loose teeth, sensitive teeth, and receding gums. If you are experiencing any of these, make sure that you let our staff know and we will be sure to help you treat periodontal disease.
We recommend that you have a cleaning every six months. This will help to keep your mouth healthy and diseases away. If you have any questions regarding routine cleanings or would like to schedule an appointment, contact us today at (773) 528-3384.
