Prevention Matters to Your Oral Health
When it comes to preventing oral health problems, oral exams and dental x-rays matter because they allow your dentist to assess the health of your gums and teeth. At the same time, your dentist can recommend an oral hygiene regimen that works best for you. At Wright Dental, we recommended to have at least one oral exam involving x-rays and a teeth cleaning every six months to stay on top of your oral health.
Teeth cleanings,scheduled once every six months, is the recommended routine for maintaining oral health. During a cleaning at Wright Dental, the overall goal is to remove plaque and tartar from places where your toothbrush can’t reach, such as below the gumline or in tight crevices. Removing plaque and tartar with a professional teeth cleaning is important because it’s the second line of defense (after your own oral hygiene habits) against gum disease and tooth decay. If not removed, plaque hardens into tartar and only special scraping tools can remove it. If either is left in place for long enough, more serious issues can develop. Contact us to find out more about our teeth cleaning procedures.
Gum diseases,such as gingivitis (gum inflammation caused by bacteria), which can lead to periodontitis (destruction of tissue, gums, teeth, and bone surrounding the mouth) — can be diagnosed and treated by your dentist. In the case of gingivitis, you may need a professional cleaning where our team will use techniques such as scaling and root planing (removing plaque and tartar from below the gumline) to ensure that refuges for disease-causing bacteria are eliminated. Periodontitis may be treated like gingivitis in its earliest stages, but more serious cases may require more aggressive treatments involving oral surgery.Avoiding potentially serious oral health problems begins with scheduling routine oral exams and teeth cleanings.
