Preventive care in Elmhurst
Healthy teeth and gums are no accident. Don’t be misled into thinking that you have a naturally high degree of oral well-being, because if you don’t do the things that support it, you are still likely to suffer the consequences. Likewise, some people don’t see a reason to bother with preventive care because they assume that their teeth and gums are always going to be in poor health. Nothing could be further from the truth. Let us at the practice of The Gentle Dentist- Dr. Amit Sood assure you of that with guidance on home oral care and the benefits of our Elmhurst teeth cleaning.
Despite any inherited issues, it is dental plaque and tartar that are primarily responsible for tooth decay and gum disease, along with the effects of them. Brush your teeth every day. Start first thing in the morning, do so after meals, and finish off when you are preparing for sleep. So long as you use a quality brush and use proper technique, there is no danger of brushing your teeth too much. There is, however, danger in not doing it enough. Flossing is a once per day task, preferably before bed. So if you do the above, why do you need our Elmhurst teeth cleaning? The answer is that it’s not always possible to eradicate all of the dental plaque because it may hide away, such as deep in your gum pockets. The resulting tartar buildup can only be efficiently eliminated with our Elmhurst teeth cleaning, which also reverses the signs of early stage gum disease, or gingivitis.
