When you have a teeth cleaning in Flagstaff, you are doing much more than simply making sure that you do not get dental cavities. You are actually taking steps to protect your overall health. A regular dental cleaning will remove all excess tartar, plaque, and bacteria from your teeth. This means that you will be much less likely to develop deep pockets between the teeth and gums. When deep pockets develop, tartar, plaque, and food debris will all gather in these deep pockets and infection well form. At this point you will have gum disease. Gum disease is a very serious condition which can go on to cause many different types of medical problems. Gum disease can travel down to the jawbone and cause teeth to loosen and fall out. This alone is a very serious problem. Gum disease can also travel to other parts of your mouth and affect other teeth as well. However, it is important to know that infection from gum disease can travel through your bloodstream to other parts of your body and cause serious medical conditions as well. For example, infection from gum disease has been known to cause problems with the patient’s heart, as well as cause other medical problems such as high blood pressure and even stroke. For all these reasons it is very important to come into our dental practice for a regularly scheduled teeth cleaning which will greatly reduce the likelihood of your ever developing gum disease.
