One of the most important reasons to visit your dentist regularly to check for the first signs of gum disease or periodontal disease.
Although it creeps on slowly and without warning, this infection between and around your teeth can quickly eat at your gums and develop open areas that can fill with bacteria. These can eventually reach your bones and teeth, which will cause your teeth to fall out or have to be removed.
The best way to fight periodontal disease is to remove the plaque that develops around your teeth every day. Brushing, flossing and dental cleanings wash it away before it becomes tartar. Only your dentist can remove target through scaling and root planing so regular visits are crucial to your oral and overall health.
