Maintaining proper oral hygiene at home is always an important aspect of keeping your teeth and mouth healthy and clean. However, it does not replace the in-depth examination and cleaning we provide when you come in for your routine visit. We stress the importance of keeping your regular dental appointments. Daily brushing and flossing will help keep your teeth and gums healthy but routine care from certified dental hygienists is essential in maintaining optimal oral health. Whether you are experiencing pain or bleeding from your gums, persistent bad breath, or are looking for teeth cleaning in Barrie, contact Dr. Scott Macpherson Dentistry today to schedule an appointment.
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is one of the most common diseases. It can be more serious than people often believe causing bleeding gums, sensitive teeth, and bad breath, and it can even lead to tooth loss. Gum disease has also been shown to increase the risk of respiratory and heart disease.
One way to reduce your chances of gum disease is to stay up-to-date on your routine visits to the dentist. The examination and cleaning provided by a certified hygienist can help to remove the build up of bacteria that can lead to gum disease.
