Your oral health isn’t solely rooted in your teeth. Your gums act as part of a foundation for the overall state of your smile. And, it’s been proven that oral health can even impact the rest of your body. So, when your gums start to feel the negative impact of poor hygiene, so will the rest of your body.
How your gum disease is treated will depend a great deal on how advanced it is and how much damage it has caused. Mild gum disease can often be treated with a professional cleaning and a renewed commitment to good oral hygiene habits. Moderate-to-advanced gum disease may require a deep cleaning treatment known as scaling and root planning. During this treatment, we remove the tartar and bacteria from below the gumline.
Gum treatment can be the cornerstone of your oral health! With healthy gums come healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. So, if you’re concerned about the state of your smile, please don’t hesitate to contact ParkShore Dentistry to schedule an appointment.
