If you are currently experiencing gums that bleed when you brush or if you have noticed your gums appear red or swollen, you may be in the early stages of gum disease including gingivitis. Healthy gums are the foundation of a healthy mouth. While twice daily brushing along with flossing are the key components of a home oral care routine, to be fully effective these techniques must be combined with professional teeth cleaning. For many patients, the complete removal of stubborn tartar and plaque can only be fully achieved by a professional dental hygienist with the assistance of sophisticated and powerful professional tools. The extensively experienced and highly trained professionals at Northbridge Dental provide thorough teeth cleaning in Alpharetta to ensure your gums remain in peak condition.
Neglecting to have a comprehensive professional teeth cleaning in Alpharetta by the well-qualified team at Northbridge Dental may result in tooth loss. The path of periodontal disease can begin with debris left to accumulate at the base of a tooth when progresses into the formation of pockets or sulcus which may get larger as the plaque and tartar continues to build up. As the pockets get deeper, the jawbone may be exposed or erode and gradually teeth can loosen and eventually be permanently lost. Gum disease is the leading cause of adult tooth loss.
However, this entire path can be avoided with regular dental examinations as well as meticulous teeth cleaning in Alpharetta by the caring and compassionate team of professionals at Northbridge Dental.
