Professional care prevents the biggest threats to dental health in Calgary
The importance of an oral hygiene partner
Even those families seemingly blessed with a genetic predisposition toward “good teeth” still require professional examinations and cleanings to prevent the biggest oral health offenders. Advanced gum disease begins with a sticky plaque film that develops when sugars in food and drink combine with the more than 500 different species of bacteria that naturally reside in your mouth. A natural cleanser, saliva can only remove some bacteria and, for many patients, saliva production is depressed due to chronic medical conditions or the drugs used to treat them.
Even with consistent and thorough brushing and flossing, plaque builds up in hard-to-reach places and hardens to form tartar, which can only be removed with professionals’ advanced tools.
Good home care + professional care = A healthy match
In partnership with you, Calgary Dental Centers helps prevent the inflammation that promotes gum disease, which eventually causes teeth to separate from soft tissues, loosen in their sockets, and fall out.
Decay represents another threat to the integrity of your teeth, and the beauty and health of your smile. As bacteria feed off sugars that remain on your teeth, acids are produced that erode tooth enamel. Dr. Asaria and his team may notice thinning of the protective enamel covering. They will suggest appropriate treatment to prevent cavities, which can progress to an infection of the innermost pulp tissue.
