Dental cleaning is the removal of tartar and plaques from your teeth and gum lines, therefore reducing inflammation and improving the health of your gum. Plaque is sticky film that forms on the teeth which contain bacteria and develops when food mixes with saliva. However, plaque accumulation can lead to gum disease, including inflation of gums, also known as gingivitis. If you do not treat gingivitis, it can advance to periodontitis causing more dental issues. Periodontitis is a severe infection that destroys the bone that supports the teeth, accordingly you should schedule a routine dental checkup with McClane Dentistry.
