Dental Care Niagara
Your regular dental hygiene visits are very important. Aside from removing plaque and calculus, your dental hygienist, will assess all the extra oral and intra oral structures associated with teeth, ensure you keep fresh breath and maintain all of your dental work and gums nice and healthy.
When you don’t have professional cleaning done in over a year, plaque and tartar accumulate around the teeth and especially gum line. Plaque is soft, gel like structure that contains bacteria that has already adhered to the tooth, while tartar (or calculus) is hard structure of bacteria that has calcified over time and can only be removed by the professional cleaning. Both plaque and tartar shelter bacteria that can not only cause tooth decay, but can also lead to inflammation of gum tissue leading to gum disease. Gum disease is the most common disease in the entire world, affecting approximately 80% of world population, predominantly adults as recently reported by The Guiness Book of Records. If left untreated, it can lead to the eventual bone loss around the tooth and development of periodontal disease, so called silent killer of your teeth.
Healthy mouth leads to the healthy body. Recently, numerous studies have confirmed link between gum disease and stroke, heart attack, diabetes, respiratory disease, premature death and even some forms of cancer in males. In order to keep the rest of your body nice and healthy, the professional team at Dental Care Niagara can help you with your first stop-keeping your mouth nice and clean!!! Keeping the rest of your body nice and healthy starts with keeping your mouth nice and clean.
