Periodontal Care Phoenix, AZ
Healthy gums and periodontal tissues have prime importance in order to retain natural teeth for longer time periods. Periodontal disturbances and diseases result in loosening and mobility and eventually permanent loss of teeth. Periodontium comprises of the supporting tissues of teeth which include the cementum portion of the root, alveolar bone, gingival tissues, and periodontal ligament fibers. Meticulous oral hygiene maintenance is essential for the removal of plaque and tartar from the surfaces of teeth and underneath gingival tissues. Plaque and tartar are necessary pre-requisites for the development of periodontal diseases. Dr. Moyer uses the latest state of the art techniques and armamentarium for the prevention, screening, and treatment of periodontal diseases.
How do gingival and periodontal diseases occur?
Dental plaque and tartar formation are the major factors involved in the occurrence of gingival and periodontal abnormalities. Tartar formation results due to mineralization of plaque. Gingival inflammation develops in the early stages characterized by bleeding of gums. With the passage of time, hardening of plaque results below the gums and loss of periodontal fibers attachment with the teeth occurs. Attachment loss leads to the formation of pockets and eventually, mobility and tooth loss happens.
How can we prevent the occurrence of gingival and periodontal diseases?
Gingival and periodontal diseases can be easily prevented through good oral hygiene maintenance through proper tooth brushing twice daily and with the regular use of dental floss to disrupt the layer of dental plaque and stoppage of tartar or calculus formation. Scaling and polishing of the teeth is highly recommended by Dr. Moyer in the case of bleeding gums at the early stage of gingivitis or gum disease.
