With proper care and maintenance, it is possible to keep your full set of natural teeth for life. For this to be possible, maintenance of our teeth and the structures around our teeth is key. Our gums and the bone supporting our teeth are important to keep healthy as they provide the foundation for our oral health. Bacterial infection such as gum disease can damage the supporting tissues around the teeth.
Periodontal therapy works to restore and rebuild the supporting tissues that surround the teeth. Keeping these tissues healthy is critical. When the tissues, gums or bone are infected, the permanent teeth can be damaged or even lost. Your dentist can examine your teeth to check if you are in need of periodontal therapy. There are many different types of periodontal therapy that work to remove infection and restore the tissue. Your dentist can determine which method would be best for you.
Periodontal disease happens most often from dental plaque in the mouth. Effective flossing and brushing are important to keep the teeth and gums healthy. Regular dental check-ups can help detect any areas of concern and help your oral health by getting your teeth thoroughly cleaned in all the hard-to-reach areas of the mouth.
