Dental professionals are the only ones who can perform regular professional cleanings. During a professional cleaning, hard-to-reach plaque and built-up calculus are removed. Plaque is a type of bacteria that sticks to your teeth after you drink and eat. It is typically kept under control via daily brushing and flossing. If plaque is not kept under control, it builds up into a hard material known as calculus. This calculus attacks the enamel of the tooth and eventually leads to tooth decay. A professional dental cleaning can remove calculus build up.
The same bacteria behind plaque and calculus can also negatively impact your gums. This bacteria then leads to the early stages of gum disease, also known as gingivitis. If you have red, swollen, bleeding or sensitive gums whenever you brush and floss, then you most likely have gingivitis. Left without treatment, gingivitis can develop into periodontal disease. Once this has happened, you must immediately see a dentist to receive periodontal treatment.
Chronic bad breath is also known as halitosis. It is estimated that approximately 25% of Americans have this problem. In most cases it caused by something you ate, poor oral hygiene, or tooth decay. Our dentists are able to help you in treating this problem. By pursuing regular, professional dental cleanings and your dentist’s at-home oral hygiene advice, you will be able to control your bad breath.
Receiving an annual oral cancer screening is an important element of maintaining your overall health. Oral cancer, a potentially fatal disease, can be treated easily if caught in its early stages. Our dentists will screen for oral cancer at your first dental exam. We highly recommend that everyone over the age of 18 receive an oral cancer screening at least once a year.
