Regular dental cleanings are essential to maintain optimal dental health. Gingivitis is a common and mild form of gum disease that causes inflammation and redness at the base of your teeth. The most common reason for gingivitis is poor oral hygiene. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to a more serious form of gum disease called periodontitis which is characterized by a loss of tooth-supporting bone. Advanced periodontal disease can cause abscesses and tooth loosening.
Therefore, it is important to routinely remove plaque and tartar off your teeth. At Dayton Dental, we combine the use of dental instruments and a modern Piezo ultrasonic machine to gently remove tartar deposits off your teeth. We will finish your cleaning by polishing your teeth which will remove surface stains and produce a smooth tooth surface less prone to accumulating plaque and tartar.
