|Have You Seen Your Hygienist?
Proper oral hygiene is important not only for your appearance, but also for your overall health. Improper oral hygiene may lead to infection, gum disease, bone and tooth loss, circulation and cardiovascular disease, and even strokes.
Why is periodontal care part of good oral hygiene?
As part of the periodontal care, you are also screened for oral cancer, which is curable if diagnosed and treated early.
If gum disease is diagnosed early, it can be reversed through treatment. Gum disease is caused by infection in the gum tissue and bone, eventually leading to tooth loss. Regular dental cleanings – and check ups – help to prevent gum disease.
Regular periodontal care, along with check ups, brushing, and flossing, are important to let you keep your own teeth for as long as possible, and therefore maintain your normal chewing function and overall good health.
