How do I know if I need a dental deep cleaning?
Daily brushing and flossing are effective ways to encourage healthy teeth and gums between scheduled dental exam and cleaning appointments. While you may have an idea that you need deep teeth cleaning or are developing gum disease due to inflamed or bleeding gums, our dentist can thoroughly examine your mouth and confirm this at your dental exam and cleaning. If you have early signs of gum disease, a better at-home routine, and more frequent exams may be recommended instead.
What can happen if gingivitis goes untreated?
The first stage of gum disease is known as gingivitis. Gingivitis is the only stage reversible at home and with the help of our team. When left untreated, it will continue to advance into more aggressive stages of gum disease that may require more than deep teeth cleaning. The accumulation of bacteria can cause gums to swell, bleed, and ultimately result in tooth loss.
How can I take care of my gums at home?
The best way to take care of your gums at home is to practice preventive dentistry measures. Some preventive dentistry strategies include maintaining dental exam and cleaning appointments, brushing and flossing, receiving fluoride treatment, and discussing ways to achieve better oral health with our team each time you visit. Saltwater rinses with lukewarm water, and switching to a healthier, less sugary diet may also help!Contact Us
