The daily habits you perform to protect your teeth and gums form the basis for your smile care. Brushing and flossing help you remove bacterial deposits that otherwise stick to the surface of your teeth and threaten decay and disease. By attending routine cleanings and exams with your dentist, you receive a professional review of your daily efforts. We also provide cleanings that go above and beyond the capability of your tools at home. These visits also present an opportunity to detect issues with your gums early, potentially preventing the setting in of permanent disease. Remember that gingivitis is reversible before it reaches your jawbone, so let us know right away if you experience inflammation, bleeding, or chronic bad breath.
At your Moreno Valley, CA dentist’s office, we help you take a preventive approach to your oral care. This means regularly cleaning your teeth and gums to help you maintain a robust smile. We also offer periodontal maintenance services for patients who present with a gum infection. By placing you on a more frequent visitation schedule, we hope to prevent infection from progressing and allow your tissues to heal.
Making Healthy Gums Your Priority
By sticking to a rigorous daily brushing and flossing schedule, you do your part to prevent plaque and tartar from accumulating on the surface of your smile. These deposits form from the combination of oral bacteria and food matter that can cause your body to break down its own gums and bone structure. Flossing in particular helps you reach between the teeth and down to the gumline to ensure that no small pockets are going unnoticed by your brush. Make sure to attend each of your semiannual dental checkups to ensure that you are doing a complete job at home and receive professional smile assistance.
If you develop a gum infection, we can put you on a maintenance therapy schedule to remove bacterial deposits both above and below your gum line. By clearing these pockets under your gum tissue, we can polish your tooth’s roots to allow the gums to heal and reattach. Without proper care, an ongoing gingival infection risks leading to tooth loss, so make sure to attend each of your therapy visits.
