The best way to prevent gum disease – the bacterial infection of teeth, gums and periodontal ligaments – is to ensure that you are cleaning your teeth properly. Managing your oral hygiene is important because little problems left untreated over time can quickly escalate. Sometimes we think we are doing the right thing and do not even realize that there is room for improvement. Why take unnecessary risks with your intraoral health when Narre Warren Dental Care can help you smile with confidence?
Scale and Clean Services Help Prevent Gum Disease
In addition to regular brushing and flossing routines, you should see our dental hygienists at least every six months for a scale and clean. Despite your best efforts to clean your teeth there will always be something minute like a stain or a build-up of tartar that requires professional precision to remove.
If tartar is allowed to spread and gum disease develops it can cause:
Gums to recede from bone
Enamel and dentine discolouration
Bleeding gums after brushing and flossing
Protect Yourself from Bacterial Infection
Gum disease left unchecked can lead to serious consequences. Call Narre Warren Dental Care today and schedule a comprehensive dental check-up.
