It’s important to thoroughly brush your teeth each morning and night as well as effectively floss at least once each day. This basic oral hygiene regimen helps to remove plaque buildup, food debris, and sugar residue from the mouth before they can harden into bacterial tartar.
If tartar does develop near the gumline can contribute to the periodontal inflammation as well as the early development of gum disease. Early signs of a gingivitis problem could include gum tissues to appear inflamed and bleed easily when performing your daily oral hygiene routine. This could also include chronic problems with bad breath.
Your dental checkups at Farshid Ariz D.M.D.’s dental clinic, is designed to remove hardened tartar and other bacterial deposits from your teeth. This can also help to remediate gingivitis inflammation before it has a chance to worsen into a more serious degree of gum disease.
If you skip a dental checkup, or otherwise forgo professional treatment untreated gum disease could have a profound negative effect on your periodontal tissues. In time chronic gum disease could weaken the roots of your teeth leading to multiple cases of tooth loss.
