How An Ultrasonic Scaling Can Impact Your Oral Health

Why would your dentist recommend an ultrasonic scaling in addition to the standard dental cleaning you already undergo? An ultrasonic scaling is employed with a particular purpose in mind – your dentist uses it to help you fight gum disease. Taking action against periodontal problems is important. If you fail to act in time, the condition can grow into an advanced stage, and will be irreversible. During your ultrasonic scaling, your teeth will receive a careful, advanced cleaning below your gum line. This removal of bacteria will help fight off an infection, and help restore the quality of your periodontal tissue.

Ignoring Gum Disease Can Be Risky For Your Smile

What makes advanced gum disease such a threat to your smile? When you deal with this condition, you face the real risk of damage to your soft tissues and bone surrounding teeth. This, in turn, can become a problem with loosened, and lost, teeth. Because the condition can only be managed at this stage, you will need to stay active with professional care if you want to protect your smile.

Preventive Care Can Help You Maintain A Healthy Smile

With smart preventive care from your dentist, and good habits at home, you can limit your risk to the threats of gum disease. Smart care at home means staying on top of brushing and flossing, and watching for worrying signs your oral health is facing trouble. Signs of poor periodontal health include a receding gum line, red or swollen tissue, and a tendency for your gums to bleed. In addition to care you provide, make sure you take advantage of professional dental visits, to enjoy expert oversight of your oral health.
