It is extremely important to keep up with regular professional dental cleanings to prevent gum disease. Brushing and flossing are also important, but dental scraping is what is needed to remove plaque and tartar. Without it, the buildup will cause a bacterial infection of the gums and will also affect the surrounding bone structure.
Early gum disease can be controlled by a “deep cleaning” procedure. Your Aurora dentist will go in and do ultrasonic, or manual scraping, and root planing to remove the plaque and tartar.
