Importance of Periodontal Maintenance
There are a host of periodontal diseases that affect the mouth. Each is basically an infection that can take over the gums. If left untreated, this will over time destroy the support mechanism that promotes healthy and naturally functioning teeth. One of the main factors leading to onset of gum disease is a proliferation of untreated dental plaque. This builds up over time and must be taken care of in order to prevent periodontal disease.
Unfortunately, some individuals are genetically prone to developing gum related problems, making periodontal maintenance even more important. Daily brushing and flossing activities are much helpful and will prevent many forms of gum disease.
It is extremely beneficial to visit our office in Mesa, AZ, one or two times a year to get rid of the underlying plaque and d a regular checkup. For an appointment call us at 480 834 035.
