Periodontal disease (gum disease) is a severe oral health condition that also affects your general health and well-being. It's important to practice preventive dentistry like daily brushing and flossing, along with regular dental check-ups and exams. When gum disease is left untreated, it can lead to health problems like heart and respiratory disease.
At Singh Smile Care, we provide our Phoenix patients with dental therapy that kills gum disease. The best treatment for gum disease, however, is making sure it doesn't develop at all.
Preventing Gum Disease with Preventive Dentistry
The best way to fight gum disease is through routine dental check-ups and exams that allow Dr. Jupi Singh to check your oral health and find signs of infection. During your dental cleaning, we remove plaque and tartar that sticks to your teeth. No amount of brushing and flossing can completely remove bacteria and plaque build-up, which is why regular dental cleanings are essential.
If we find signs of gum disease during your exam, we can swiftly eliminate the disease before it becomes serious. Our dental hygienist can demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques to ensure your at-home oral healthcare is the best it can be.
If it's been a while since your last dental cleaning, please give us a call today to schedule one. Prevention is the best line of defense against gum disease!
