If you take good care of your teeth, they will stay healthy and beautiful for a lifetime. Professional oral hygiene treatments play a vital role in managing your oral health. Scaling and polishing removes plaque and calculus (tartar) from tooth surfaces, reduces gingivitis (a mild form of gum disease) and prevents progression to periodontitis (severe gum disease). It can help with teeth sensitivity and leave your mouth feeling clean and fresh.
The primary goal of oral hygiene is to prevent plaque buildup that may cause tooth decay or gum infection. Plaque is the sticky, colorless film of bacteria that forms on teeth. Bacteria in plaque produce acids after you eat or drink. These acids can destroy tooth enamel and cause cavities, gum disease and bad breath. Untreated plaque can harden into tough-to-remove tartar. Tartar gives plaque more surface area on which to grow and a much stickier surface to adhere to, which can lead to periodontitis – a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissue and, without treatment, can destroy the bone that supports your teeth. Tartar removal needs to be carried out professionally from within a dentist’s office and by a dental hygienist.
Optimum dental hygiene is the foundation for preventing oral wellbeing and has even been linked to reducing certain chronic diseases later in life. With your continued diligent efforts in maintaining a high level of oral hygiene – plus a regular visit to Viadenta’s team of professional dentists and dental hygienists – you can maintain confidence in the health of your teeth and gums.
