Periodontal & Gum Care
Periodontal disease, also called gum disease, is caused by the accumulation of plaque on your teeth and below the gum line. During your routine checkup at Paradise Dental Care, we assess the condition of your gums carefully, since periodontal disease can affect not only your teeth but your cardiovascular health as well. Fortunately, periodontal disease can be prevented and treated with professional dental cleaning at Paradise Dental Care.
Periodontal disease has several early warning signs such as:
What Causes Periodontal Disease?
Plaque needs to be removed daily through brushing and flossing. If it is not removed it can build up and mineralize to become tartar, which then accumulates on the root surface of your teeth. Brushing and flossing is not enough to remove tartar. It must be removed by a professional, and that is where regular cleanings and checkups come in.
Dental Cleaning and Proven Gum Treatments to Restore Your Oral Health
We use scaling tools and ultrasonic equipment to remove plaque and tartar. This reduces harmful bacteria below the gum line and prevents it from causing damage. These methods are effective for both prevention and treatment of gum disease. Oral antibiotics may be prescribed to promote healing extreme cases. We will then set you up with a home care program if necessary to continue the healing process.
Daily brushing and flossing may not be sufficient to protect your gums. Professional dental cleaning at Paradise Dental Care is your first line of defense against periodontal disease. Call and schedule a dental cleaning appointment with our gentle hygienists.
