Healthy teeth and gums are necessary to promote better oral health. People often focus on brushing and flossing their teeth, but they forget about gum health. What we don't realize is that our teeth depend on our gums to be strong for them to function properly. Weak gums result in weak teeth and this could become a major issue where your overall oral health goes for a loss. No amount of brushing and flossing can help you maintain good teeth if you do not look after your gums properly. In case you are wondering how you should care for your gums better, visit our clinic at Ephrata Family Dentistry and speak to our professionals who can guide you and help you understand what needs to be done to maintain your gums properly to prevent issues.
Helps Deep Cleaning Of The Mouth
Good and healthy gums mean that you will be able to brush and floss without any sort of irritation. When you brush or floss and you feel that your gums are irritable or there is a slight pain or discomfort, that is a sign that you need to get it checked because it could be an infection that you are ignoring.
Healthy gums are essential if you want to promote good oral health and the only way you will be able to have healthy gums is when you get your teeth and gums inspected by our professionals regularly. Dental cleaning isn't just about your teeth, but it is also about your gums. If you do not have healthy gums, our professionals will not be able to deep clean your mouth because the minute they go close to your gums you will start to feel some sort of discomfort. Better periodontal maintenance means that your teeth and gums are strong and this enables our professionals to thoroughly clean your mouth and ensure that there is no infection.
Your gums hold the roots of your teeth and when your gums are weak the roots automatically get compromised. If you want your teeth to stay strong you must focus just as much on your gums as you do on the health of your teeth. Good gum health equals stronger teeth and this is why periodontal maintenance is so important. When your gums are strong, the roots of your teeth are also strong, and your natural teeth manage to stay in your mouth for as long as possible. The minute the health of your gums is compromised, that's when you need to start thinking about whether or not you will be able to maintain healthy teeth. The more we can do to maintain your gum health from the beginning, the less likely you are to lose your teeth due to gum disease.
If you have questions about the health of your gums or you do not know how to maintain it well then you should give us a call at (223) 264-3020 or visit our clinic at Ephrata Family Dentistry so we can inspect your teeth and your gums to rule out possible signs of infection or treat an infection at an early stage.
