Your teeth were meant to last a lifetime, but if you practice poor oral hygiene habits then you risk losing them down the line. If Dr. Nick Mobilia of Elite Dental Arts has diagnosed you with gingivitis, the good news is that it’s reversible. The bad news is that if you don’t visit us for routine cleanings and dental exams your risk of advancing to periodontitis is high.
A toothbrush is an ultimate weapon in fighting against periodontal disease. This is because periodontal disease begins with plaque – a sticky deposit on teeth in which bacteria multiply. If plaque is not brushed away on a daily basis, it will turn into tartar which only our team of hygienists is able to remove. If gingivitis is left untreated, it will advance to periodontitis. Periodontitis causes a disease to the bone and supporting tissue, leaving teeth loose, putting the patient at risk of extraction. Prevention is key with periodontitis, visit us for professional cleanings twice a year so Dr. Mobilia can keep an eye on your periodontal health.
If you have questions or concerns about periodontal disease, please give us a call. To learn about the services we provide at our practice, visit www.elitedentalarts.com for more information.
