Dental Cleaning and Gum Disease: A Vital Connection

Do you brush and floss twice a day? However, did you know that even the most careful brushers may overlook germs and plaque pockets that are concealed beneath the gum line? These unnoticed risks add up to a quiet menace that poses a serious risk to general health: gum disease. 

Periodontal disease, often known as gum disease, is a persistent inflammatory condition that damages teeth and the tissues that support them, perhaps resulting in tooth loss. Alzheimer’s, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke are also linked to it. 

Frequent dental cleanings, usually every six months, provide essential defense against hazards to oral health. They protect your dental health beyond routine cleanings by removing hard-to-remove plaque and tartar and early signs of gum disease. 

To safeguard your smile and general health, routine dental cleanings are essential for both controlling and preventing gum disease. Biannual visits are an investment in your health, one smile and one healthy body at a time, so don’t undervalue their significance. 


Intervention and early detection are essential. Make an appointment for your next cleaning and discuss your gum health with your dentist. Your body and smile will be grateful!
