Hammond Dental Care Treatment for Teeth and Gums
Gum disease and tooth decay are caused by plaque and this begins to build up on your teeth within 20 minutes after eating. This is why it is very important that you brush your teeth every after meals. If your teeth are not cleaned well each day, plaque will lead to tooth decay and if it doesn’t get removed, it turns into a tartar that gets trapped at the base of your tooth. When this happens, the plaque and tartar can irritate and inflame your gums.
Seeking appropriate dental care can help you prevent gum and teeth problems. Through regular teeth cleaning by a dentist, the plaques will be prevented from developing. Professional teeth cleaning includes scaling and polishing and also uses tools that helps loosen and remove deposits from the teeth. Here at Advanced Dental Concepts, we offer proper oral care to help you achieve your desired results.
Routine exams such as dental x-rays can be performed as well. This provides early detection and prevents any dental conditions from worsening.
You should also watch out for symptoms of gum disease:
- Red or swollen gums
- Gum bleeds when you brush your teeth
- Bad breath
- Loose teeth
Oral Health Vigilance
Apprehensive about the state of your teeth or gums? Here are some telltale signs to help you act on it as soon as possible:
Floss regularly – Sure, brushing your teeth is the best way to go, but don’t forget that there are some pieces of food that are still stuck in the gaps of your teeth that your brushes bristle can’t reach.
Use a mouthwash – It doesn’t just mask bad breath but also helps keep your teeth and gums in check. Make sure to choose a mouthwash that gives a lot of benefits such as tooth decay prevention.
Check with your dentist – Seeing your dentist at least a month can help you keep your oral health in check. This will also prevent further oral and dental problems or stop an existing health issue from spreading to your gums, teeth or mouth. Your dentist will also give you some ways on how to take care of your oral health and treatments if necessary.
