Your dental care is not confined to your teeth; it initiates with them and extends to every component that constitutes your mouth. In the realm of dentistry, treatment goes beyond the teeth and delves into the intricate structures that support your teeth—your gum and jaw bone–and contribute to overall oral health.
The Essence of Periodontal Care
“Periodontal” denotes ‘around the tooth,’ emphasizing the importance of the well-being of structures surrounding your teeth, such as the gums and bone. The comprehensive field of periodontal care encompasses the protection and enhancement of these critical components.
Indicators for Periodontal Attention:
If your gums exhibit signs of swelling or redness, it serves as a strong indication that specialized dental attention is necessary. At DentFirst Dental Care, we conduct thorough assessments to identify the presence of harmful substances like plaque and tartar. These substances, when left unaddressed, escalate into more severe conditions, leading to periodontitis and tooth loss.
Regular brushing and flossing are pivotal in preventing the progression of periodontal issues. Our patients undergo a variety of cleaning procedures, focusing on the removal of plaque and tartar, mitigating the risk of further deterioration. During routine dental checkups, we emphasize the importance of maintaining proper oral health and provide tools and guidance to support our patients in their daily oral care routine.
Addressing Progressive Issues:
Ignoring the significance of daily oral care routines, including flossing, can result in the gradual, often painless, buildup of dental problems. Our dedicated team strives not only to address existing conditions of poor oral health but also to reverse them, alleviating dental problems and promoting overall gum and bone health.
