Why Should I Have My Teeth Professionally Cleaned?

hygienist and patient

There is only so much that regular brushing and flossing can do. A professional cleaning will remove bacterial plaque and tartar deposits that settle along and underneath the gum line. They simply cannot be removed by tooth brushes and dental floss.

If not removed, these deposits will cause gingivitis, which can evolve into a more serious disease - periodontitis.

What are Some Common Types of Gum Disease?

Gingivitis, or gum disease, is a chronic infection of the mouth that can be very deceptive. It is a silent disease and rarely painful. However, it can wreak havoc elsewhere in your body. If not treated, it will become more serious and cause bone loss and tooth loosening.

When this happens, the inflammation is at the periodontitis stage. At this stage, the condition can be painful and cannot be ignored. Sure signs of periodontitis are:

  • Red swollen gums
  • Bleeding gums, especially after brushing
  • Bad breath
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Receding gums - pulling away from teeth and making them look longer than before
  • Worn teeth

Linked to Other Serious Conditions

Bacterial inflammation in the mouth may be linked to other inflammatory conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases (heart attacks, strokes) and Alzheimer disease. It makes even more sense to detect, treat and prevent gum disease as it may also help manage other serious conditions.

Another condition easily treated by the professional hygienists at Kanata North Dental Office is tartar build-up. Tartar, also known as hardened plaque, is caused by an accumulation of minerals from food and saliva that can no longer be removed by brushing and flossing. The treatment is called scaling and is very simple. This procedure consists of removing tartar from the pockets in which bacteria can settle and proliferate. Treatment is necessary to prevent bacteria from producing toxins that can damage the bone and tissues that support your teeth.

cause of halitosis

Bad breath (halitosis) may be caused by many health conditions. However, in an otherwise healthy person, bad breath is generally the result of:

  • Not brushing and flossing twice a day (deficient hygiene habits)
  • Gum disease and deficient tongue hygiene
  • Eating food with strong odours
  • Smoking

Our Ottawa dentist Dr. Assad and the team at Kanata North Dental Office can monitor the evolution of the problem, provide oral treatment and cleaning, and help identify the cause of your bad breath.

All of the conditions listed above can be identified, prevented and treated with regular checkups by our hygienists and appropriate treatment from Dr. Assad.

Let us help keep your smile healthy and beautiful.
