It is essential to brush your teeth and floss daily, but these practices cannot replace professional teeth cleanings in El Dorado Hills, CA. A trained hygienist can remove debris between teeth and built-up tartar that is too strong for your toothbrush to remedy.
Tartar and bacteria lead to potentially dangerous oral health problems like gum disease. Gum disease is a series of infections that may lead to tooth loss, stroke, or even a heart attack.
The signs of periodontal disease include:
- Receding gums or pocketing—giving your teeth a longer appearance
- Bleeding gums—especially when brushing or flossing
- Loose or shifting teeth
- Bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth
In the early stages—or the gingivitis stage— you may not notice these issues, which is why you need to see the dentist and hygienist regularly. Your dentist in El Dorado Hills, CA can reverse gingivitis and prevent gum disease.
Regular teeth cleanings in El Dorado Hills, CA may also lower your risk for cavities, root infections, and tooth loss.
If you haven’t scheduled your professional teeth cleaning in El Dorado Hills, CA, we encourage you to contact our dental office today. We look forward to providing you with a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
