If you want to have healthy gums you will need to make sure that your teeth stay clean. Even with the best at-home teeth cleaning regimen, some plaque will always remain on teeth. This plaque will harden and turn into tartar. Tartar is a hard, mineralized substance that tightly adheres to teeth and can only be safely removed with professional dental instruments during a professional dental cleaning. If tartar is allowed to stay on teeth, it will encourage the development of deep pockets to form between your teeth and gums. When this occurs, plaque, tartar, bacteria, and food debris will all gather in the deep pockets and infection well form. At this point, you will have gum disease. Gum disease can travel down to your jawbone and cause teeth to loosen and even fall out. Infection from gum disease can even travel through your bloodstream and cause serious heart problems or other medical issues. So as you can see, it is very important to keep your gums healthy. When you come in for a teeth cleaning in Northampton at our office, not only are you taking a giant step toward helping to prevent gum disease from developing, but you are also helping to ensure that you get fewer cavities. During a teeth cleaning, all plaque, bacteria, and tartar is removed from your teeth. This means that your teeth are much more likely to get fewer, if any, cavities.
