Don’t Overlook Symptoms Of Gum Disease!

Gum disease can create serious trouble for your oral health, increase your risk for tooth loss, and elevate your risk for several potentially serious conditions. Unfortunately, many people who have problems with their periodontal tissue will overlook troubling symptoms. If you notice that your gums tend to bleed when you brush them, or are generally more sensitive, you should know these are signs of gum disease. Swelling and redness can also indicate a problem. If you are worried about your periodontal health, your dentist can provide help through an ultrasonic scaling.

Using An Ultrasonic Scaling To Protect Your Smile Against Gingivitis

By performing an ultrasonic scaling, your dentist can remove bacteria that have gathered on teeth below your gum line. In addition to removing bacteria, the ultrasonic scaler used by your dentist can also provide a cooling rinse or antibacterial treatment. By treating gingivitis with an ultrasonic scaling, you can help your gums recover from problems.

Other Benefits Of Preventive Dental Care

An ultrasonic scaling is an important preventive dental benefit, but there are other advantages to preventive care that deserve your attention. A standard cleaning from your hygienist, performed during a routine dental checkup, will remove tartar from your teeth. This will serve to protect you against tooth decay and gum disease. Your dentist can also provide early detection and treatment for problems that call for restorative dental care. No one wants to learn they have a cavity. That being said, having a cavity caught and treated early is certainly preferable than leaving a cavity the time it needs to infect your pulp. If you do suffer interior tooth problems because of a cavity, then a root canal will have to be performed.
