The cornerstone to great dental care is making sure you have your regularly scheduled dental exams and professional cleanings. Our Baltimore dentist, Dr. Schulman, encourages each of his patients to make sure they have their regularly scheduled dental exams on time, to prevent the need for more involved dental care. For example, gum disease is one problem that most likely will be prevented by good at-home care and professional dental cleanings. So, it is important to know the correct at-home brushing and flossing techniques. To remove any tartar that forms on your teeth, you will want to be sure you attend your periodic professional dental cleanings.
During a general dental exam, our Baltimore dentist will closely examine your mouth for any signs of cavities, oral cancer, gum disease, or bite problems. Gum disease can lead to tooth loss, so it is especially important to work to keep gum disease at bay. As tartar builds up in your mouth, it begins to lodge between the tooth and gums. This causes pockets to form. As the condition progresses, more and more debris and bacteria builds up in the pockets and the pockets deepen. The gums begin to pull away from the tooth and the infection deepens. Eventually the gums will recede, the infection will continue to deepen, and the jaw bone will become damaged. At this point you risk losing your teeth to gum disease. When it comes to gum disease, truly an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
