How Scaling Removes Plaque from Beneath Your Gums
Posted on 5/25/2018 by Edelweiss Dental Implant Center
Scaling is done on the outside of the teeth and under the gum line to ensure that any plaque buildup is completely removed from the outside of the teeth. When a person goes for long periods of time without a professional cleaning, this buildup begins to spiral out of control and can lead to serious oral health complications, including, but not limited to, gum disease. This is why scaling is so important. Scaling and Your Oral Health Scaling is something that is done during a routine dental cleaning, which is typically every six months. Ideally, you want to have your teeth cleaned professionally twice a year. During the process a scaler is used to scrap away plaque that has hardened into tartar from the teeth and the gum line. This process in and of itself can help to reduce the risk of gum disease and other oral conditions. Scaling can also be used prior to any major dental procedures to help minimize the risk of complications or infections. So, if we recommend a cleaning, including scaling, prior to a dental procedure, there is nothing to worry about. While some people fear that the process of scaling will hurt, we ensure that our patients mouths are numb before the we even begin scaling. This means that the entire process will end up being virtually painless. The reason we recommend scaling is simple. By removing the plaque, tartar, and calcium deposits that have accumulated on teeth and near the gum line, your gums can begin to heal. Without proper scaling, your gums will have an increasing difficult, uphill battle to climb when it comes to repairing any damage or recovering from an oral injury. If you would like to know more about scaling and how we can use it to help you, contact our office today and we will happily answer all of your questions for you....

Gum Disease And Your Oral Health?
Posted on 5/15/2018 by Edelweiss Dental Implant Center
Gum disease is something that you will have forever if you do not get it treated by a dental professional. You can do things at home to help reduce the chances of it advancing or becoming more uncomfortable, but without coming in to see us for regular treatments, you're not going to be able to remove the buildup that is causing the gum disease. Gum Disease and Your Health You can have gum disease for months before you notice that it is breaking down the teeth and gums. You might notice after some time that your teeth feel loose. However, the beginning stages are when someone notices that they have irritated and red gums that are causing them problems. This is from lack of brushing and flossing that leads to having this problem. Once it is noticed, we should be contacted immediately regarding the issue. Having an uncomfortable mouth is enough to prompt anyone to seek help. Gum disease is a serious issue and it shouldn't be left alone. It needs to be addressed to ensure that your overall health does not get negatively affected. For example, the plaque buildup can go to your heart and other systems, causing far more problems than you bargained for. Simply brushing twice and day and flossing once is oftentimes enough to help prevent gum disease. However, this doesn't mean you can skip out on your regular 6-month checkups. These checkups help us evaluate your current oral health condition and catch any problems early on. If you are concerned about gum disease, do not hesitate to call our office today. We will be happy to sit down with you, examine your oral situation, and come up with a treatment plan that will help address your gum disease problem, if you have one....
