Do Your Gums Bleed to Brushing Or Flossing?

If yes, you may have gum disease or periodontitis. Inflammation of the gums or the tissue that holds the teeth in place, can damage your ability to bite and even lead to tooth loss. Combining regular professional cleanings with your own home care is the best way to maintain a healthy mouth by keeping teeth strong, gums healthy, and breath fresh. Neglecting your gums can lead to gum disease, which can result in bone loss, which can further lead to tooth loss. New evidence is emerging which links gum disease to heart problems and other medical conditions.

How to avoid periodontal disease

Routine professional cleanings prevent gum disease and tooth decay by removing deposits of plaque and tartar that build up on the teeth. At Classic Dental we also take time to provide oral care instructions to educate you on ways to keep your teeth plaque free.

Remember to brush regularly, clean between your teeth, eat a balanced diet, and schedule regular dental visits (at least twice a year) to help keep your smile healthy!

How Often Should You See Your Dentist?

In addition to your daily teeth cleaning routine we recommend our patients see our teeth cleaning specialists at Classic Dental at least once every six months to ensure any problems such as a build up of calculus, dental cavities, gum disease or even mouth cancer are caught early on.
