Healthy Gums in Paterson

Teeth Cleaning Paterson

At the offices of Dr. Anna J. Huh, DMD, we perform a teeth cleaning Paterson for patients who need to keep gums healthy and to ward off gingivitis and tooth decay. Healthy gums are vital to a healthy mouth and teeth. Teeth survive best in a clean oral environment and should be brushed and flossed daily in order to keep them looking their best and free from tooth decay.

Having a teeth cleaning Paterson every year is critical to keeping teeth and gums healthy and in top shape. Brushing and flossing alone just isn’t sufficient for removing plaque and tartar, even with daily care. Tartar needs to be scraped off the teeth with a dental cleaning, because tartar regenerates daily. Reducing plaque buildup and tooth decay helps to prevent cavities, gum disease and receding gums. Receding gums can be caused by many different things, but periodontal disease can especially cause the gums to recede too low, resulting in a loss of teeth. If teeth are lost, they cannot be replaced except with implants or dentures.

At the offices of Anna J. Huh, DMD, we recommend both children and adults have a teeth cleaning Paterson with our dentist at least once per year. Dental care is important and should be a priority starting at a young age, so that kids can learn the proper steps to keeping teeth healthy and clear of cavities and other oral problems. Healthy gums help to keep teeth healthy for years to come. If gum disease sets in, it can cause a host of problems with gums, teeth and bone structure. Gum disease can be reversed if proper oral hygiene techniques are followed on a regular basis. This means brushing, flossing, and having regular dental cleanings each year. Brushing and flossing should be done twice per day for best results.
