When you visit Smiles Whitening Express as your teeth cleaning service in Edmonton South, we will do gum measurements every time you visit to find early signs of periodontal disease. If these signs are found early on, treatment is a lot more successful at restoring the health of your gums.
What is teeth cleaning?
It is a professional procedure in which a number of tools are used to remove buildup, plaque and stains from your teeth. This is done with the help of tolls called scalers. As all the buildup or calculus is removed from your teeth, they are polished with the help of a polishing cup. It is designed to leave the tooth buildup free and smooth surfaced to make it easier for you to have clean teeth and prevent gum disease.
Why do gums bleed?
If you see that your gums bleed, it is a sign of inflammation generally caused due to buildup of bacteria. This can cause pain, irritation and sensitivity. It is crucial to discuss these problems with our experienced dentists at Smiles Whitening Express so they can help you reverse the symptoms. If these symptoms are not addressed, eventually it can cause bone loss and tooth loss.
How often should you get your teeth cleaned?
For healthy, well maintained teeth it is recommended that you visit your dentist every 6 months. If your gums need more attention, then you should visit your dentist every 3 months. During these visits teeth cleaning will be performed, appropriate x-rays are taken and an exam by the dentist is done. The health of your gums and teeth will be assessed and any essential treatment/preventive options will be suggested.
