Having your teeth cleaned professionally and on a regular basis is crucial and many times is not given enough consideration. Periodontal disease can come on slowly over the years and end up causing gums to be red, swollen, and bleed easily and for the teeth to shift, separate, and look crooked. Here’s what happens. Our teeth are held securely in place by bone that is under our gums. Bacteria, soft plaque, hard calculus deposits and food get under our gums. If the debris and bacteria are not removed, it will start to disintegrate the bone holding our teeth in place. The slow erosion of bone and gum shrinkage will cause the teeth to shift and become mobile. The worse case is to lose a tooth or teeth. Many people have gone a lifetime without consistent care. Frequent cleanings protect so much more than teeth, they help keep periodontal disease at bay. By regularly checking your periodontal health, our team can treat gums with pockets and prevent buildup under the gums.
Effective oral hygiene care is the foundation of healthy and strong teeth resulting in a beautiful and lasting smile. Dr. Bodensteiner's team helps you safeguard your dental health and total overall well-being by educating you about all aspects of oral health and dental care.
A key to maintaining excellent oral health is regular and thorough check-ups of the condition of the gums and finding and treating any signs of periodontal disease. It's been shown that the state of your oral health has a direct link to your overall health. Dental infections, if left untreated, can spread to other areas of the body by bacteria entering small blood vessels in the mouth. Gum disease has been linked to such conditions as diabetes, heart disease, early labor, miscarriages and low birth weight.
