Eroding Gum Line with Severe Plaque Buildup Causes Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease. Professional Treatment and Dental Cleaning was Required.
Whitening Solutions Available at Lakefront Family Dentistry
At Lakefront, we offer several professional whitening solutions in which we create custom-fitted mouth trays used for delivering our professional brightening solution. Once the mouth piece is designed and properly fitted, you will receive a prescription strength gel that is placed in the lower and upper trays and left in the mouth for 30 minutes to an hour.
This process is completely safe. Maximum results can be obtained in as short as two weeks, depending on stain severity.
Proper Oral Care is Imperative
A proper teeth cleaning is a part of oral hygiene that involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth to preventing cavities, periodontal disease and gingivitis. Usually, people clean their teeth by brushing and inter-dental cleaning. Dental hygienists remove tartar, or hardened deposits that cannot be removed by routine cleaning and regular toothbrushes and floss.
Here are five reasons to have your teeth professionally cleaned by a registered dental hygienist twice each year.
1. Gum Disease Prevention
Plaque buildup causes bacterial infections in the mouth, commonly known as gum disease or periodontal disease. Plaque is the colorless, sticky, bacteria-packed film that sticks to the teeth. As plaque builds up, it becomes hard and produces tartar, which can be difficult to remove with regular brushing.
The bacteria then produces toxins that will irritate the gums, then cause inflammation and gingivitis. Failure to remove this bad bacteria will cause a continuing inflammation in the gums, which leads to tissue destruction, followed by a more advanced stage of gum disease.
2. Tooth Preservation
Pockets grow deeper as gum disease progresses, and the plaque moves further into root of the tooth, destroying the supporting bone. The affected teeth will then loosen and fall out.
Gum disease is a prominent cause of tooth loss in adults, so regular dentist cleanings and exams, combined with flossing and brushing are vital steps to keeping your teeth.
3. Brighter Smile
Tobacco use, tea and coffee consumption, and other caffeinated drinks can cause tooth discoloration. So getting a dental cleaning is a must in order to keep your smile white and bright. Along with removing tartar and plaque, your hygienist will polish your teeth for a lasting shine and smooth feel.
4. Bad Breath Prevention
Halitosis, or unrelenting bad breath, can be caused by:
- Periodontal disease
- Poor oral hygiene
- Unclean dentures
- Food stuck between teeth
- A layer or film on the tongue
- Throat infections
- Oral carcinomas
Good oral care is crucial for preventing these conditions, so keeping your teeth clean is important for fresh-smelling breath. Attending regular dental visits is a necessary step to maintain clean teeth.
5. Overall Good Health
Many dentists argue that there is a link between a person’s overall health and their oral health. New studies suggest a link between gum disease and cardiovascular problems, like strokes and heart attacks. Getting a dental cleaning every six months to keep your gums and teeth healthy could reduce these risks.
