In order to have healthy teeth, it is important that you have healthy gums. The health of your mouth can even affect the health of your entire body. So it is very important that you have healthy gums, and do what you can to prevent gum disease. At our dentist office in Albany, Dr. Geoffrey Edmunds, patients are able to receive dental exams and dental cleanings to help with gum disease prevention.
When you come to our dental practice, you will be seen by our expert dentist, Dr. Geoffrey B Edmunds. At our dentist office in Albany, we recommend biannual dental exams and dental cleanings to help with gum disease prevention. If a patient develops gum disease, their teeth can begin to loosen, and may even fall out. Infection from the gum disease can enter your bloodstream and travel to other parts of your body. These are just two reasons why you want to make sure that you do not develop gum disease. And, should you develop gum disease, it is important that it is quickly and effectively treated at our dental office. The best way to make sure that your teeth stay healthy is to have regular dental exams and cleanings at our dental office. This way, should gum disease begin to develop, it can be immediately treated. When plaque irritates the gums, gingivitis can develop; this is a common precursor to gum disease. If our dentist finds that you have gingivitis, it will most likely be recommended that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to help your gums return to good health. If our dentist finds that deep pockets have formed between your teeth and gums, it means that you have gum disease. A scaling and root planing treatment at our office, often referred to as a deep cleaning of the gums, should help the deep pockets to heal and allow your gums to become healthy again.
