Dental cleans are vitally important for keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Professional cleaning performed by our dental hygienist removes plaque and tartar buildup from around the teeth and under the gum line, which, if left unattended, can lead to gum disease.
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is not just a problem for your teeth and gums but can also have an impact on your overall health. Research has shown that gum disease is associated with a range of health issues. When gum disease is left untreated, it can lead to inflammation throughout the body. This inflammation can contribute to the development of other health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. Pregnant women with gum disease are also at an increased risk of premature birth and low birth weight babies.
By taking care of your dental health and preventing gum disease, you can help reduce your risk of developing these and other health problems.
It is also important to practice good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing twice a day and flossing daily.
