Hygiene and Gum Treatment

Periodontitis is an inflammation that gradually destroys the supporting tissues of the teeth (i.e. gums and the underlying bone). The primary cause is a microbial infection. To avoid this type of problem, it is important to have a regular routine check-up and cleaning at the frequency recommended by your dentist.

If you miss a few visits, a simple treatable gingivitis can turn into periodontitis faster than you might think. That neglect can lead to serious complications, such as more severe inflammation and/or infection (abcess) and even might require extracting one or several teeth. For that reason, prevention and early treatment is very important to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

If you notice any bleeding when you brush or floss, or any little swelling of your gums, you may have the beginning of a gingivitis. Call us at 450 629-3368 to schedule an appointment for a cleaning.
