We emphasize the importance of regular brushing of teeth and gums to remove dental plaque. This can turn into tartar when brushing is insufficient, which can lead to gum diseases such as bad breath, bleeding gums and, in the long term, loosening and loss of teeth.
We generally recommend an hygiene scale & polish visit every six months.
If the gum disease is already advanced, scaling is no longer enough. We can perform a deep scaling. For more complex cases, we can refer you to our specialist for periodontal treatment.
Keeping the gums in very good condition is not only crucial for keeping your teeth, but also because recent studies have shown that periodontal disease significantly increases the risk of cardiovascular disease.
