It has been shown that prevention is one of the main factors in maintaining overall health, and of your teeth. The foundation for natural, restored, and implant supported teeth is healthy gum tissue and bone. Without the proper oral care, over time the bacteria (plaque) will begin to build-up at the gumline and will harden producing tartar, inflamation of the gums (gingivitis), and penetrate the gum line and begin spreading into the bone (periodontitis). Recent studies indicate that periodontitis has been associated with diabetes, heart disease, and low birth weight infants.
