Your supporting bone around your teeth and gums are very important. Gum disease includes gingivitis or swelling of the gum, and periodontists or disease of the gums and supportive bone.
Periodontal disease is a serious bacterial infection that can lead to tooth loss.
Your general health can be affected by periodontal disease and has been linked to cardiac disease, diabetes and other diseases. Getting your teeth cleaned by a trusted dentist is very important for your teeth overall health and appearance. Every 6 months is the ideal time frame to schedule these general cleaning visits for healthy teeth. They keep your teeth and smile bright and help prevent any type of dental or gum disease such as gingivitis, tooth decay, or gum recession. If you are a smoker or had any type of dental or gum disease, more frequent visits might be necessary to maintain your dental health.
