Why are regular Hygienist visits so important?
What you should remember is that your teeth are constantly bathed in saliva which contains calcium and other substances ( like Fluoride) which help strengthen and protect your teeth. While this is a good thing, the saliva also contains plaque – the sticky, colorless, bacteria-filled film that adheres to your teeth. As it hardens by joining with the calcium etc, it forms a tough, discoloured mass called tartar. At this stage, tooth brushing at home will not be able to adequately remove this material. This will be part of the hygienist task during your appointment.
The bacteria in plaque produce toxins that irritate the gums and cause inflammation, known as gingivitis. If bacteria are not removed and the inflammation continues, the gum tissues can be destroyed and more advanced stages of gum disease may follow. This may include bone loss and irreversible tooth loosening. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults and there is mounting evidence of a connection between a person’s oral and overall health. Recent studies have linked heart attacks and strokes to gum disease.
