Teeth Cleaning

Regular teeth cleanings by your hygienist is a vital part of fighting off gingivitis (gum inflammation) and periodontal disease (gum disease). If you don't thoroughly remove all the bacteria in your mouth, it will accumulate, motivating gum inflammation. If left untreated, this inflammation can sprout into gum disease. Gum disease causes the gums around your teeth to become lose and degenerate - which will eventually mobilize tooth loss.
