Having a healthy mouth is relatively important. Not only will you have a beautiful smile, but you’ll also cut down the risk of other infections as well. A healthy mouth really is a healthy overall body. Bacteria in the mouth can get into the stomach or the bloodstream, so having a healthy mouth is really one of the best things you can do for your body.
It’s important to see your dentist every six months for a check-up and a deep cleaning with the dental hygienist. Cleanings are painless, they simply scrub your teeth with little instruments and a lot of water and some gritty paste, and they will also take x-rays of your teeth to see if you have any underlying issues that need to be addressed, such as cavities or possible root canal work.
Scaling and root planning is considered the basic treatment of periodontal diseases and may be the only treatment required to treat mild cases of periodontitis; however, it may also be the initial therapy prior to future surgical needs.
