If you are interested in having healthy teeth, you must have healthy gums. If your gums are not healthy, infection will form which can go down to the jawbone. Once this happens, your teeth will begin to loosen and may even fall out. So if you want to have healthy teeth, you will want to make sure that you come in for periodic teeth cleanings to help your gums to stay healthy. We encourage all of our patients to come in to our practice for New Rochelle gum treatment, so they will not need to worry about developing gum disease which will create serious health and dental problems.
At our practice, Paul Roberts, DDS, our expert and highly trained dentist is Dr. Paul S. Roberts. All of our patients are encouraged to come in for periodic dental exams and teeth cleanings as these are two very effective tools in keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Even with the very finest at-home tooth cleaning regimen, you will be leaving some plaque and bacteria on your teeth. When plaque stays on teeth for even a short amount of time, tarter will form. Tarter is a hard, mineralized substance which will encourage the development of deep pockets between the gums and teeth. When these deep pockets develop, tarter, plaque, bacteria, and food debris will all gather, and infection will form. At this point you will have gum disease which will not go away until it is treated with New Rochelle gum treatment at our office.
If it is determined that you have gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, our dentist will most likely recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to get your gums back to good health. If you develop gum disease, with deep pockets between your teeth and gums, our dentist will most likely recommend that you have a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment. This treatment is like a deep cleaning for your gums which will remove all debris and infection from the deep pockets. This in turn will hopefully cause the deep pockets to begin to heal. When you want to make sure that you are an in excellent dental health, make an appointment to come to our dental practice for a teeth cleaning, and New Rochelle gum treatment, if needed.
