Teeth Cleaning in Ridgefield

Keeping your teeth clean through regular dental cleanings is important for a bright smile and to prevent cavities but did you know that regularly scheduled sessions with the hygienist could also save your gums and teeth? According to Dr. Michael B. Schwarz, regular teeth cleaning in Ridgefield is important for area residents to keep their teeth and gums healthy. In fact, professional teeth cleaning is the supporting compliment to daily brushing and flossing at home, together home care and professional cleanings maintains the health of your teeth.
Teeth cleaning in Ridgefield is an essential part of a preventative regiment for good dental health. During a cleaning in our office the hygienist will not only get the tartar and plague off your teeth but also scrape tartar, plague and food particles off the gums, especially around the base of the teeth. If allowed to collect around the teeth near the gums these irritants can eventually get between the teeth and the gums and form deep pockets, which will become infected and cause gum disease. A mild form of gum disease is called gingivitis, which if left to get serious can result in severe damage to the gums and tooth loss. While teeth cleaning will not prevent all gum disease, or even gingivitis in some cases, it is a good preventative step that our practice recommends to be the first line of defense against letting gingivitis take a hold on your gums.
Preventative methods, such as teeth cleaning in Ridgefield, are a lot better than resorting to remediation methods after the gums have become diseased. According to our doctor, treatments for gum disease, depending on the severity of the case include teeth cleaning, root planning (scraping the roots and gums until they are smooth) and various types of traditional and laser surgery. Our practice strongly urges its patients to begin a regiment of daily home care coupled with regular checkups and cleanings in our office to stop gum disease and other dental problems before they start. Why not begin your preventative regiment today by scheduling an appointment with our office for a checkup and cleaning.
