You have to visit the dentist at least every six months for your dental check-up and dental cleaning, which is also called dental scaling.The plaque and tartar attached to your teeth harbor bacteria that cause gum damage.Regular scaling plus home care helps you to keep your gums healthy and free from gingivitis.
In our Mississauga dental office at downtown, we provide the preventive services that help to retain healthy gums and teeth. Preventing gum diseases is our primary goal as gum disese will eventually result in mobility of the teeth, infection of the teeth, and loss of teeth and alveolar bone.
Once the teeth and bone are lost as a result of gum disease, it is inevitable to undergo extensive teeth replacement procedures like implants and dentures.A small step towards your oral health will render your gums back to good health. Call us today to book appointment for your cleaning.
