Why Is It Important to Get a Professional Teeth Cleaning?
There is a common misconception that you really don’t need to see the dentist for professional cleanings if you brush and floss daily. While a good at-home oral hygiene routine is certainly an important component of good oral health, it is still important to see your dentist for a professional cleaning. Regular brushing and flossing do a good job of removing most of the bacteria that coat the teeth after we eat and drink. The plaque that remains, however, can harden to a substance known as calculus that can only be removed by a thorough dental cleaning. If it has been a while since your last cleaning, call us to schedule an appointment.
How Do I Know if I Need Periodontal Treatment?
Periodontal disease occurs when the bacteria that live in plaque get under the gumline where they attack the bone and ligaments that hold the teeth in place. In the early stages, gum disease is generally painless and is characterized by red, swollen gums that tend to bleed when you brush or floss. If ignored, gum disease can progress to the point that you experience frequent gum infections or even tooth loss. Regular dental exams and cleanings are the best way to prevent gum disease. If your dentist determines that you have gum disease, we will recommend treatments, such as deep cleanings, to improve your gum health.
What Can I Do About My Chronic Bad Breath?
Chronic or extreme bad breath, a condition known as halitosis, can negatively affect your self-esteem as well as your personal and professional life. Common causes of bad breath include the foods that we eat, poor oral hygiene, and oral and general health conditions. If you are among the 25% of Americans who struggle with halitosis, call us today for diagnosis and treatment. If the issue is caused by an oral health condition, we can recommend cleanings, oral hygiene regimens, and other treatments to help you control the problem.
Who Should Have an Oral Cancer Screening?
Although most forms of oral cancer can be successfully treated, it often becomes life-threatening because patients don’t realize that they have the condition until it has already spread to other parts of the body. A routine screening is the best way to detect oral cancer in the early stages when it can be easily treated. We are so passionate about the benefits of oral cancer screenings that we include them in every initial exam for patients 18 years and older. The screening itself is quick and painless. During the exam, the dentist will inspect the inside of the mouth for any signs of lesions, bumps, or other abnormalities. If your dentist identifies any areas of concern, we will recommend the appropriate treatment.
