Sometimes it is the little things that make a day feel special – like just cleaned, lickable teeth. But those smooth and sparkling teeth are also good for your health!
You see, cleanings remove the plaque and tartar from around your gumline, and that is important because your gums not only hold your teeth in place, they are direct links to the rest of your body as well! Your gums are mucous membranes, and like all other mucous membranes in your body, they are involved in absorption and secretion. If there is an infection in a mucous membrane, the infection may spread throughout your body. And that infection has been linked to a plethora of health issues, from strokes and heart attacks, to inflammation and pregnancy complications.
We have a variety of treatment options to get, and keep, your teeth, gums, and body healthy, strong, and feeling great!
