Dental Cleaning & Gum care
Dental cleaning is part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. People routinely clean their own teeth by brushing and interdental cleaning (flossing), and dental hygienists can remove hardened deposits (tartar) not removed by routine cleaning.
Many adults in the U.S. currently have some form of the disease.
Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost.
The risks of periodontal disease should not be taken lightly.
Our skilled team is dedicated to educating our patients about the scientific link between periodontal disease and systemic disorders such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, as well as complications during pregnancy. At Sweet Tooth Dentistry, we provide an outstanding, efficient and effective approach to treating periodontal disease.
