At ISmile Specialists, we know how important it is for our patients to have healthy gums and teeth so they don’t have to worry about high future dental bills. Our teeth cleaning in Missouri City is designed to give you the tools you need to practice proper oral health habits on a daily basis and to ward off gum disease, gingivitis and other problems that can cause tooth loss and tooth decay.
Before your teeth cleaning in Missouri City, we’ll ask you a few questions about your oral health history just to get an idea of how well you’ve been taking care of your teeth. Patient education is one of our priorities. You’d be amazed at how many people actually don’t know how often to brush their teeth or floss, or the right way to do either. That’s why at ISmile Specialists we make sure each patient goes home with a toothbrush and instructions on how to manage their teeth and gums, and how to look for an identify problem areas that would warrant a trip to the dentist. Healthy gums are imperative to a healthy mouth. Bacteria can hide in the pockets that are below teeth and gums, causing decay and gum disease.
Gum disease is a common affliction that many Americans face. But with a proper teeth cleaning in Missouri City and at home dental care, it can be managed and even reversed so that gums become healthy again. That’s why it’s so important to come in for a dental cleaning and checkup. If caught early enough, gums can revert back to a healthier state and gum disease kept at bay to avoid worse consequences, such as tooth loss and damage to bone. Deep cleanings and scalings can handle worse gum conditions and get underneath the flap of the gum where regular brushing can’t reach.
