Regular brushing, flossing, and a healthy diet are basic to oral health but that does not mean all sweets are out! Moderation is the key. When in doubt, your hygienist can be counted on to give you excellent advice that is geared to your particular situation or condition. Have a question? Ask Your Hygienist!
What good oral hygiene seeks to avoid are the conditions that can lead, not only to cavities, but also to periodontal disease, or what is commonly called gum disease. These conditions result from many factors but the most common is the accumulation of plaque or tartar on the teeth, especially at the gum-line or below. This causes the gums to be constantly irritated then inflamed. Since the gums support the structure of the teeth, a problem with the gums soon becomes a problem with the teeth.
But, that’s the negative. The positive is that Reardon Dental has a team of very professional, caring, and friendly, hygienists whose major job is to prevent problems. And they love doing it!
