WHY IS PREVENTION IMPORTANT?
Oral Health for Overall Health
Proper oral hygiene does not only prevent caries and periodontal disease but also affects our overall health and well-being.
At Family Dentistry on Brock we will teach you how to properly brush your teeth and show you the best techniques for maintaining good oral hygiene. we will also advise you how to remove dental plaque which forms on your teeth in places that are harder to clean.
Regular dental cleanings or scaling is vital to maintaining healthy teeth, bone and gums. Unhealthy gums and decreased bone levels can cause gingivitis, swollen, bleeding or receding gums as well as periodontal disease in later stages. Advanced periodontal disease can cause teeth to become loose or fall out and affect your ability to speak or chew effectively.
We also offer periodontal surgery and other periodontal treatments by a certified specialist (periodontist) at our office.
