Dental Care And Oral Hygiene
Your mouth, teeth and smile do so much for you, every single day.
From eating and drinking, to making yourself heard, to laughing the night away. Return the favour by treating them to a bit of TLC, with an oral hygiene appointment.
A healthy mouth means no decay, no gum disease and perfect physiological function. Our highly-skilled hygienists will conduct a thorough scale and clean, to remove plaque and tartar from above and below your gum line.
Not only will you enjoy that smooth, clean, fresh feeling, but we’ll pay special attention to the rough areas of teeth roots where germs love to collect, and remove the bacteria that contributes to gum disease.
While not definitively proven, research strongly suggests severe gum disease may be a contributing factor to the development of heart disease. But how? Well, gum disease, also known as periodontitis, is an infection that attacks and eats away at the bone and gums in the mouth. The theory goes that bacteria associated with gum disease can enter the bloodstream as the gums bleed, before attaching to fatty deposits in the arteries, leading to inflammation. This can result in blood clots and decreased blood flow to the heart, with the worst case scenario being heart attack or stroke!
So, if your gums are swollen and tender, or you’ve noticed bleeding when you brush and floss, schedule a consultation at iSmile Studio today. If we notice the signs of gum disease, we’ll work with you to develop the most effective treatment plan, and will have your mouth back to its best before you know it.
Why see a specialist dentist for gum care, and why is it important?
Your gums are the most important aspect of your oral health. It is, after all, your gums that support your teeth and help to keep them in place. Seeing a specialist dentist for gum care can not only assist with existing diseases, but also prevent future ones, too. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in Australian adults and its severity can be exacerbated in people who have autoimmune health conditions, some of which include lupus, systemic sclerosis, and immuniglobulin deficiencies. There are other autoimmune diseases, which can also have a detrimental effect on your gums and oral health. At iSmile Studio our holistic approach considers how to minimise these effects on your oral and general health so you can enjoy greater oral health and wellbeing.
