For most healthy patients, visiting your South Calgary dentist every six months for routine teeth cleanings and checkups is recommended.
If you are managing gum disease, you may need one or two cleanings each year in addition to your bi-annual cleanings to keep your condition under control.
Why Are Preventive Teeth Cleanings and Checkups Important?
Since gum disease is an active infection in your mouth, it's important that you effectively manage this condition to guard not only your dental health but also your overall health.
Science has found clear links between the inflammation that causes gum disease, and the inflammation that causes other serious health conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and dementia. It seems that having gum disease can contribute to these other health issues and vice versa.
Protecting your health with six-month cleanings and checkups will help you combat concerns like gum disease and tooth decay before they cause more significant problems.
