One of the most important things you can do for your gum health is to regularly see a dentist for cleanings, especially after you have had a deep cleaning procedure done. This will reduce bacterial buildup and prevent tartar from forming and diminishing the gains made by the procedure.
Regular cleanings can boost your gum health over time, giving them a chance to heal every two to three months, depending on your dentist’s recommendation. Cleanings can not only reduce bacterial growth but also help to reduce pocket depth. Bacteria can grow and develop in the gum pockets, and when this is left untreated for a long period of time, these bacteria can begin to cause tooth decay and begin to compromise the gum structure.
Those with excessive build up over years are prone to bone loss and other costly procedures in the future. This is why it is so important to protect your gum health now and protect yourself in the years to come.
