If you are looking for a dental practice that treats patients of all ages, and provides a wide variety of dental services, then you should become a patient of our dental practice, City Smiles Dental. At our dental office in Hamilton CA, patients are able to receive many different types of dental services including treatment for gum disease prevention.
If your gums are not healthy, your teeth cannot be healthy either. When gums become infected, infection can travel down to the jawbone and teeth can begin to loosen and even fall out. And, infection can also travel through the bloodstream to other parts of your body and cause other medical problems to occur. For these reasons, it is very important that your gums remain healthy. At our dental office in Hamilton CA, we help our patients have healthy gums and teeth by helping them with gum disease prevention. The most important thing you can do to keep your gums healthy is to carefully brush and floss your teeth at home on a daily basis, and come to our dental practice for dental cleanings every six months. It is also important to have a dental exam every six months so our dentist can make sure that your gums are remaining healthy. If it is found that you are developing gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, our dentist will most likely recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to help get your gums return to good health. If it is found that deep pockets have formed between your teeth and gums, a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment will help your gums become healthy again. During this treatment, all plaque, tartar, bacteria and food debris is removed from the deep pockets, allowing the deep pockets to heal.
