Preventive and Proactive Dental Care You Can Count On
Healthy gums are essential for good oral health because they protect the underlying tissues and bones supporting the teeth. Taking care of your gums also helps prevent periodontal diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis, which can lead to tooth loss.
Poor oral hygiene practices and the building of plaque and tartar on your teeth generally cause gum diseases. If left untreated, the bacteria get into the spaces between your teeth and gums, increasing the risk of infection. The plaque buildup can be easily treated with professional deep cleaning, protecting you from gum diseases and weakened teeth.
Maintaining good dental hygiene and routine dental check-ups prevents gum disease. Routine check-ups with us allow us to monitor your oral health and identify any signs of gum disease early on.
Some signs of gum disease are inflammation, bleeding, receding gums, and loose teeth. At Great Alpine Dental, we can help restore your gum health with our dental hygiene services and gum treatment in Myrtleford.
What To Expect When Coming In For Scaling and Root Planing
Think of it as a deep clean for your teeth and gums, for all the nooks and crannies your toothbrush and dental floss can’t access! The best part about it is that, usually, it’s the only treatment you’ll need to give your dental health the boost it needs.
Our therapist will gently clean your teeth from the root surfaces and under the gum line. We do this using technologically advanced dental equipment, including ultrasonic instruments and GBT Guided Biofilm Therapy.
