Preventative Care Helps Prevent Dangerous Gum Disease

You can help prevent dangerous gum disease simply by brushing and flossing regularly. Over time, plaque builds up on your teeth and under your gums. Regular brushing and flossing, if done correctly can help remove plaque before it calcifies into tartar and becomes a much more serious problem. Tartar can only be effectively removed by a professional teeth cleaning. While your home hygiene regime of brushing and flossing is essential to the health of your teeth and gums, regularly scheduled professional cleanings can help detect problems, remove tartar and assure better health.

Gum Health and Professional Scaling and Planing

Throughout the course of your life, dangerous bacteria attack your gums and teeth each time you eat or drink something. Some of this bacteria reaches under your gum line, allowing pockets to develop and causing dangerous plaque and tartar buildup. Unfortunately, you will probably not be able to remove those on your own. A professional scaling removes plaque and tartar from your teeth under the gum line. Planing is the process of smoothing the roots to remove these buildups. Having these procedures done regularly can help keep your gums and roots free from disease.
