Gum disease is an infectious condition that begins with the formation of plaque and tartar on the surface of the teeth. A build-up of bacteria in these deposits eventually cause bad breath, swollen, bleeding gums and progressively destroys gum tissue and bone which ultimately leads to loose teeth, abscesses and tooth loss. When left untreated, the bacteria may also travel through the blood stream potentially worsening or causing other types of health problems. This connection emphasizes the importance of good oral hygiene and the role dental hygienists play in maintaining optimal oral and overall health and wellness. Remember, dental hygienists do more than just clean teeth, they also assess, plan and implement treatments, and evaluate individual oral care needs for the promotion of your oral health. Make them an important part of your oral health team because preventative oral care can result in less extensive, and less costly, treatment for you.
