Teeth cleaning in Eastchester
is very effective in removing tartar, plaque and bacteria from your teeth. Tartar is formed when plaque is allowed to harden on your teeth. It is a mineralized substance that cannot be removed by brushing. When tartar is allowed to accumulate on teeth, deep pockets will begin to form between the teeth and gums. Tartar, plaque and bacteria will all begin to collect in the deep pockets and gum disease will take hold of your mouth. If the infection is allowed to go down to the jawbone, your teeth may begin to loosen and fall out. However, if you have your teeth cleanings performed on a regular basis, these deep pockets will not have a chance to form. Once a patient gets gum disease it needs to be treated; if gum disease is allowed to continue to advance you can end up with an infection in another part of your body. At that point you will need medical attention to take care of this serious condition. However, when caught early gum disease can generally be reversed with deep cleaning gum treatments called scaling and root planing.
