Have you ever felt you wanted to change your oral hygiene habits? Dr. Adrian can have you on the way to a brightly smiling, more confident you through an examination.
However, oral health care does not only mean a bright white smile, but can also help prevent other serious diseases. For example, gum disease can have an affect on other illnesses or parts of the body.
Plaque is a combination of the acids that are released by your mouth to digest foods such as carbohydrates, and your saliva. It begins to form on your teeth after every meal and, without regular brushing or cleaning, can erode the enamel of the tooth and cause tooth decay and holes, called cavities. These holes will only continue to grow deeper and result in severe toothache and even abscesses in the mouth.
Dr. Adrian has a range of special instruments to remove hard plaque and stains that you may have missed or were unable to remove while brushing. Teeth cleaning will leave you with a great smile, however, we know it is not only what our teeth look like but the health of our gums that is important for our overall health.
Therefore, Dr. Adrian also conducts scaling and root planing, which removes bacteria deposits from below the gum line. These bacteria deposits can cause bleeding, inflammation and infections that can move past the tissue and start to decay the bone that supports the teeth.
Thus, it is important to maintain a daily dental hygiene routine but also to have plaque build up and your gums seen to by Dr. Adrian so that he can keep you smiling.
