There are so many benefits to getting your teeth cleaned. One of the most important is that it can help to prevent gum disease.
Gum disease (also known as periodontal disease) is usually painless and slow to progress. It can reach advanced stages before you notice any discomfort or problems. This can result in deterioration of gums and bone structure, eventually causing tooth loss.
Removing plaque through daily brushing and flossing with regularly scheduled dental appointments for professional cleanings are the best ways to minimize your risk for gum disease. If necessary, make sure to ask your dentist to personalize a program of at-home oral care to meet your needs. We think gum care is so important that we offer a lifetime guarantee on our dental work with your commitment to check-ups every 6 months.
