The build-up of plaque and tartar on your teeth can lead to serious diseases affecting the health of your teeth and gums. These affect the structure of your teeth, leading to loose teeth, discomfort and potential tooth loss. However, these issues can be easily resolved by our clinicians here at Pennant Hills Dental Centre with a range of therapies ranging from regular maintenance through to periodontal therapies.
The latest literature suggests that there is a link between gum health and overall health. Just one example of this is the fact that species of bacteria in those with gum disease have also been found in diseased arteries around the heart. It is for this reason we recommend regular professional cleaning or scaling and root planing. In this treatment, we carefully clean plaque and tartar from the root surfaces, and remove any toxic bacteria from the tooth root. In most cases, this is the only treatment you will require, so we can have your teeth and smile back in great health in no time at all. We’ll then continue with regular check ups every few months to make sure your health is maintained and there is no recurrence of the problem.
