How to keep your teeth healthy for a lifetime
We all know we have to visit the dentist regularly to take care of our teeth, but did you realize those visits are also protecting your gums?
Some of the biggest problems that occur in the mouth don’t involve the teeth, but the gums around the teeth. Also known as periodontal disease, gum disease is a major issue that impacts adults and children.
If your gums aren’t healthy, the problems range from simple redness and swelling of the gums to tooth loss and long-term damage to the tissue that surrounds teeth and holds them in place. Bad breath is also a symptom of gum disease.
At Bal Dental Centre in Scarborough, they understand the need to properly care for gums and all areas of the mouth.
Sound, long-term oral hygiene requires a focus on the gums as well as the teeth, tongue and lips. The dentists at Bal Dental offer a full range of periodontal treatments designed to restore, rejuvenate and maintain gums over the long-term.
The main cause of gum disease is bacteria and the plaque that forms on teeth. One of the best ways to prevent and treat gum disease is regular teeth cleanings to have plaque removed from your teeth.
The dentists at Bal Dental can evaluate your gums and provide feedback on appropriate treatment to help them stay healthy throughout a lifetime.
Consultations are free and can be done quickly and efficiently. State-of-the-art equipment and technology is used to support the periodontal treatments.
Prevention is always better than care and the earlier the better. The dentists and hygienists can show your child proper brushing and flossing techniques and talk to them about healthy food habits.
