Professional Teeth Cleanings Combat Gum Disease
Gum disease impacts the tissues around the teeth, causing bad breath and possible bone loss if untreated. The gums gradually weaken as gum disease spreads. If the gums are not tended to by a professional dentist, they will likely loosen to the point that one or several teeth are lost. This is precisely why it is so important to visit with the dentist once every six months.
A professional teeth cleaning provides you with the opportunity to find gum disease early, reverse the effects and treat the problem before it worsens. There is a good chance you will have no idea you have gum disease unless you meet with your dentist for professional teeth cleaning, analysis and treatment. Fail to meet with your dentist twice per year and you will be that much more vulnerable to gum disease.
